Cobra Kai 2018 info:-
Cobra Kai 2018 is an American action comedy-drama YouTube Premium series, presented in an episodic storytelling format, and based on The Karate Kid film series. It was created by Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald, and stars William Zabka and Ralph Macchio (both of whom are reprising their roles from The Karate Kid, and who also serve as co-executive producers of the series). Cobra Kai is set 34 years after the original Karate Kid film, and examines the narrative from Johnny Lawrence’s point of view (placing it within the “minor-character elaboration” genre).
His decision to reopen the Cobra Kai karate dojo, leads to the rekindling of his old rivalry with Daniel LaRusso. Thirty years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, a down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo, reigniting his rivalry with a now successful Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio), who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi. he first season was released on May 2, 2018 and the second season on April 24, 2019, both on YouTube Premium. On May 2, 2019, YouTube renewed the series for a third season.
Cobra Kai 2018 Premise:-
Now in his 50s, Johnny has fallen from his wealthy childhood in Encino, Los Angeles (a lifestyle enabled by Sid Weinberg, his abusive step-father) to a life of construction work and an apartment in Reseda, Los Angeles. Johnny’s mother Laura has died, and he abandoned both Shannon Keene (his alcoholic ex-girlfriend), and their child, Robby Keene, the day Robby was born. Johnny later admits that he never recovered from the breakup with his high school girlfriend, Ali Mills. Johnny decides to reopen the Cobra Kai dojo in order to redeem himself for his past, a decision that reawakens his rivalry with Daniel LaRusso.
Meanwhile, Daniel is married with two children, and is now leading the wealthy lifestyle he envied as a child when he lived in Reseda, Los Angeles. However, he is finding it difficult to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his now-deceased mentor, Mr. Miyagi, as he finds himself estranged from his children. Johnny’s dojo attracts a group of bullied social outcasts who find camaraderie and self-confidence under his tutelage, a marked contrast to the kind of students (Tommy, Bobby, Dutch, and Jimmy) that Johnny studied with in the original Cobra Kai. Johnny develops a bond with one of the students Miguel Diaz however, in a manner that resembles the relationship between Daniel and Mr. Miyagi. Yet, Cobra Kai’s philosophy functions in marked contrast to Mr. Miyagi’s, and thus Miguel develops into a different kind of student than Daniel was. After convincing Daniel’s wife Amanda LaRusso to hire him for a position at their auto business (as a means of taking revenge against his father), Robby develops a close friendship with Daniel, and begins to study Mr. Miyagi’s form of Karate with him.

Cobra Kai 2018 Development:-
The thematic genesis for Cobra Kai began with two works of pop culture. First, the 2007 music video for the song “Sweep the Leg” by No More Kings stars William Zabka (who also directed the video) as a caricature of himself as Johnny, and features references to The Karate Kid, including cameo appearances by Zabka’s former Karate Kid co-stars. Then, in 2013, Macchio and Zabka made guest appearances as themselves in the television sitcom How I Met Your Mother (“The Bro Mitzvah”). In the episode, Macchio is invited to Barney Stinson’s bachelor party, leading to Barney shouting that he hates Macchio and that Johnny was the real hero of The Karate Kid. Towards the end of the episode, a clown in the party wipes off his makeup and reveals himself as Zabka.
