A new generation will be taught how to crane kick and sweep the leg in May.
YouTube has released an official trailer for Cobra Kai. The upcoming streaming series serves as a continuation of The Karate Kid franchise, and is set to premiere through YouTube Red on May 2.
In the highly-anticipated return of two iconic characters, the arch-rivals from the legendary Karate Kid film series reunite over 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. Now living in the affluent hills of Encino, Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) leads an enviable life with his beautiful family, while running a successful string of car dealerships throughout the valley. Meanwhile, his high school adversary, Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), whose life has taken a rocky turn, seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo. Their lives inevitably become intertwined and the rivalry is reignited, setting forth the next generation of "karate kids" in COBRA KAI, a YouTube Red Original Series. COBRA KAI is produced by Overbrook Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television.

The Karate Kid first hit theaters back in 1984 and stars Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita, Elisabeth Shue, and William Zabka. The film was then followed by three sequels, The Karate Kid Part II, The Karate Kid Part III, and The Next Karate Kid. In addition, a remake, also titled The Karate Kid, was released in 2010 starring Jaden Smith, Taraji P. Henson, and Jackie Chan.
