'Karate Kid' Sequel 'Cobra Kai' Renewed For Second Season After Monster Debut

Cobra Kai's second season will begin production later this year and is scheduled to premiere on YouTube Red in 2019.

Admittedly, the ratings are slightly inflated from nostalgia and the first two episodes being made free to watch, though that's standard operating procedure for YouTube Red.

In the first season of the series, "The arch-rivals from the legendary Karate Kid film series reunite over 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament". Though Cobra Kai isn't in the same vein as, say, Roseanne, Will & Grace, or the upcoming Murphy Brown revival, it nevertheless makes use of the same sentiment fueling fan interest in seeing those properties make a comeback.

The president of Sony Pictures Television, Jeff Frost, has also gushed over the remarkable success of the first season of Cobra Kai.

The buzzworthy series, which was released by YouTube on May 2, is officially coming back for a ten-episode second season, according to a report by Deadline.

Cobra Kai's three showrunners are Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, known for American Reunion and the Harold & Kumar series, as well as Josh Heald, who wrote Hot Tub Time Machine. The idea of continuing the story of Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), was something of a tricky proposition.
