Cobra Kai Season 3

Netflix recently announced that the original series Cobra Kai, a sequel to the Karate Kid film franchise that YouTube supported for two seasons, would be arriving on the streaming service sometime in the future. YouTube has pulled back on how much they’re spending on original narrative programming, so Netflix is also picking up the show’s third season. Thankfully, it’s a shift that creators Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald are very happy about, especially since the third season is said to be their biggest season yet. Read More »

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Series: Cobra Kai

Where You Can Stream It: YouTube Premium

The Pitch: Decades after their 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament bout, a middle-aged Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence find themselves martial-arts rivals again.

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: This is a show that, by all accounts, shouldn’t have been great. It’s produced on a low budget for YouTube’s failed premium original Netflix competitor and features a bunch of actors from the 1980s reprising roles their childhood. The series presents a legacy-quel to The Karate Kid, but imagined from the point of view of the film’s villain Johnny Lawrence (played by the great William Zabka). We’ve heard time and time again that there are two sides to every story. Now imagine that the classic Karate Kid story was only Daniel’s view of the events.

Cobra Kai comic book

The YouTube Premium original series Cobra Kai has been continuing a story that first got underway back in 1984 with The Karate Kid, depicting the ongoing rivalry between Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) decades after they clashed as teenagers. Daniel was the protagonist of that original movie and Johnny was depicted as a villain, but what if the story is more complicated than that?

A new Cobra Kai comic book intends to explore that question by giving Johnny Lawrence his own Maleficent moment, retelling the events of The Karate Kid through his eyes instead of Daniel’s. Learn more about the upcoming comic below. Read More »
