Strike first, strike hard, without mercy. 🐍
But in case you haven’t watched it yet, here are 15 reasons why you absolutely should:
Cobra Kai follows events 34 years later The Karate Kid, so it’s not a ~ reboot ~. It’s actually more of a series of sequels.
And don’t worry if you haven’t seen The Karate Kid, because this show is totally likely to be enjoyed as a standalone series.
Ralph Macchio and William Zabka both helped develop the series and reprise their iconic roles as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence, respectively.
Macchio and Zabka aside, the show features a whole bunch of equally talented up and coming actors that you can’t help but love.
You will also see some Karate Kid characters, in addition to Daniel and Johnny.
The series is a perfect mix of genres with aspects of comedy and teen drama…
… Plus a pinch of the right size action.
Also, nostalgia and the current mainstream combo is * the chef’s kiss *.
The series debuted on YouTube Premium in 2018, but since its transfer to Netflix, the series has grown from a super niche web series to # 1 within days.
It’s a super easy watch with two seasons of 10 episodes, and each episode is about 30 minutes long.
The fight scenes are absolutely crazy.
You’ll come for the Cobra Kai and Miyagi-Do rivalry, but you’ll stick with the nuanced and well-written characters.
Basically everyone in the entire cast is a badass.
Don’t spoil the ending for you, but Season 2 leaves you on a HUGE cliffhanger.
And finally, the best news: Season 3 is coming in 2021.
