The television series takes place 34 years after the original film and follows the reopening of the Cobra Kai karate dojo by Johnny Lawrence and the rekindling of his old rivalry with Daniel LaRusso.
It’s more than just 80s flashbacks and dealing dojos, as both men (and their families) learn and change.
After two seasons on YouTube Premium, the series moved to Netflix.
