Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are coming back to face each other once in the shocking news that 80’s classic The Karate Kid is getting a sequel.
Youtube Red have confirmed that they are planning a 10 part TV series called “Cobra Kai”, that will pick up the events 30 years later from the original film, that will see Johnny reopen the Cobra Kai karate gym and once more clash with Daniel who is suffering without his mentor Mr. Miyagi, by his side.
“The minute I heard about this project, I knew we had to have it. ‘The Karate Kid’ became an instant classic in the 1980s, and still resonates with audiences around the world and on YouTube today,” said Susanne Daniels, global head of original content for YouTube. “We’re thrilled to partner with Sony TV, Overbrook and the talented writing team led by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg to add a fresh, new comedic twist on one of Hollywood’s most storied rivalries.”
The show is expected to air in 2018. Lets hope Daniel-san has waxed on and off, over the last few years…..
