The first teaser for Cobra Kai Season 2 is here to show no mercy

Perhaps one of the biggest surprises of 2018 was how positively THE KARATE KID fans both new and old responded to YouTube Premium's comedy-drama web television series COBRA KAI. Created by Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald, the first season of COBRA KAI was a major hit, and centered on a down-and-out Johnny Lawrence, who'd been looking to turn his life around by reintroducing the teachings of his old dojo, Cobra Kai. Upon inviting the next generation of would-be fighters to learn under his hardened rule, Johnny was challenged by his old foe, Daniel Larusso, who still embraced the values taught to him by his sensei, Mr. Miyagi.

Heres' the synopsis for COBRA KAI Season 2 via the show's official press release:

Season 2 brings fans back into the action with Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) after the shocking Season 1 cliffhanger featuring the return of John Kreese (Martin Kove). When a new rivalry between opposing dojos is born in the aftermath of Cobra Kai’s controversial win at the All Valley Championships, Daniel realizes his next countermove is to open his own karate training school called Miyagi-Do, in honor of his mentor Mr. Miyagi.

What was once a personal feud between Daniel and Johnny escalates beyond their differences to engulf their students, who as teenagers, are already challenged to figure out who they are and who they want to be. Which path will they follow – Cobra Kai or Miyagi-Do?

When talking up Season 2 of the fan-favorite series, Heald said, “Season 2 is definitely going to deliver on Daniel’s promise to reopen Miyagi-do as a full dojo, as a karate school. And what we can tease from dojo vs. dojo is that as we saw in season 1 with Johnny it’s not always easy to fill your dojo with students right away and make an immediate success of a karate dojo in the valley. And with those growing pains, comes more rivalry.”

Jon Hurwitz then added his voice to the conversation by saying, “Johnny and Daniel are very complicated characters and they are like oil and water at times, and they’re like peanut butter and jelly at other times. And it’s those moments where they can come together and do come together in the series that are really fun for us to write and witness also, because their camaraderie — both in real life and between these characters in that they have so much shared history, both good and bad — but this rivalry runs deep and I think there’s probably a long road ahead before they can be reconciled.”
