Johnny and Daniel renew their rivalry decades after its peak with this sequel to the Karate Kid franchise. Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), who famously lost to underdog Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Maccio) in the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament in Karate Kid, is the central character this time around. In Cobra Kai, a down-and-out, 50-something Lawrence reopens the show’s namesake dojo and uses it to get his life back on track. Watch for Season 3 to drop on Netflix sometime in January.
