Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) was the villain of The Karate Kid. Sure, he had a bad influence in John Kreese (Martin Kove), but Johnny was the one Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) had to defeat at the All Valley Karate Tournament. Cobra Kai reinvented the movie series with Johnny as the hero, or at least a co-protagonist with a middle-aged Daniel.
The final scene of season one showed the return of John Kreese, so fans have spent all year wondering how Johnny is going to deal with his old sensei returning. Johnny is trying to turn Cobra Kai into a good influence on teenaged students. Meanwhile, he’s also got students who’ve already taken “no mercy” too far in the 2018 All Valley Tournament, and he’s estranged from his own son Robbie (Tanner Buchanan).
Zabka spoke with /Film by phone before the premiere of Cobra Kai’s second season. We spoke about some of the new things we learn about Johnny this season and some of the big picture Karate Kid questions all the fans have. Cobra Kai returns at 12:01AM ET Wednesday, April 24 on YouTube Premium.
