Yes, sensei! The official teaser trailer for Season 2 of YouTube’s “Cobra Kai” has arrived and don’t you worry, because the rivalry between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) is still very much alive when the “Karate Kid” sequel series returns this April.
Here’s the official description for the next batch of episodes:
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?
“Cobra Kai” is written and executive produced by Josh Heald (“Hot Tub Time Machine”), and Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (the “Harold & Kumar” film series, “American Reunion”), who conceived the new “Karate Kid” storyline that picks-up decades after the original film ends.
Hurwitz and Schlossberg directed much of the series. Will Smith, James Lassiter and Caleeb Pinkett are executive producing for Overbrook Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television Studios. Susan Ekins also executive produces.

“Cobra Kai” Season 2 launches April 24 on YouTube.
