  • Ralph Macchio and William Zabka's Daniel and Johnny come face to face — again

That's right: Because nothing ever dies in pop culture, The Karate Kid saga continues later this year when Ralph Macchio and William Zabka return for YouTube Red's upcoming 10-part series.

Cobra Kai is expected to premiere on YouTube Red sometime later this year.

The teaser doesn't offer much more in the way of plot, but it does hit us with a cluster bomb of old-school Karate Kid references: the tournament bracket from the All Valley Karate Championship; old newspaper clippings of Daniel with his late mentor Mr. Miyagi; and Johnny donning his black sleeveless Cobra Kai uniform and Daniel tying on his classic blue-and-white headband. According to Entertainment Weekly, this doesn't sit well with LaRusso, who has been living a wonderful life as a successful auto salesman and family man. I think it's very faithful really in some ways to what the movie set about doing, the lessons imparted in the movie if you will.

The trailer begins with voiceovers from LaRusso and Lawrence, as they list the pros and cons of the Cobra Kai dojo's revival.

Writing the series are Josh Heald (Hot Tub Time Machine), Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold & Kumar). All three will executive produce the series with Susan Ekins, Will Smith, James Lassiter, and Caleeb Pinkett.

Cobra Kai also stars Xolo Maridueña (Parenthood), Tanner Buchanan (Designated Survivor), Courtney Henggeler (Mom) and Mary Mouser (Freakish).

Daniel and Johnny are nursing old wounds with the ferocity only middle-aged men with too much time on their hands can foster.

I don't know about you, but seeing Daniel and Johnny standing off like that, in a shot so similar to the one from the 1984 film, gave me goosebumps.

We also learn that Daniel's wife and business partner Amanda is being played by Courtney Henggler, while Mary Mouser plays their spitfire daughter, so you can bet they'll have a say in Daniel, now a successful vehicle dealer, getting back into the fighting game.
