COBRA KAI, the KARATE KID television sequel, is moving to Netflix.

The series, which ran for two seasons as a YouTube original, “takes place 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, where a now successful Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) struggles to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of Mr. Miyagi, and must face his previous adversary, down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), who seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo.”

The first two seasons will debut on Netflix later this year, with a third season to come.

“Making Cobra Kai has been a dream come true for us since day one,” said executive producers Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg in a statement. “We are thankful for the tireless dedication of Jeff Frost, Chris Parnell, Jason Clodfelter, Karen Tatevosian, and all our partners at Sony for finding us a new home where we can not only continue the series, but also explore opportunities to further expand The Karate Kid universe. We are beyond excited to join our new partners at Netflix and look forward to the show reaching the massive global audience who loves this franchise as much as we do.” 

Added Brian Wright, Vice President, Original Series, Netflix: “The appeal of THE KARATE KID saga is timeless, and COBRA KAI picks up right where it left off without missing a beat. The rivalry between Daniel and Johnny is one for the ages, and the show has a ton of heart and is a lot of fun. We can’t wait to introduce a new generation of fans to COBRA KAI and are thrilled to be its new home around the world.”

“We are so proud of COBRA KAI and are overwhelmed by the massive fan response to the series,” said Jeff Frost, President of Sony Pictures Television. “Josh, Jon, Hayden, Ralph, William and the entire cast have done such a brilliant job with this sensational series and the huge audience reaction and sentiment for it is a testament to that. We are very thankful to our partners at Netflix and couldn’t be more elated that they have become the new home for this epic saga.”
