Cobra Kai teaser trailers introduce the main characters

As we have learned, Cobra Kai will allow us to catch up with The Karate Kid in the present day with Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, reprising their legendary roles. Also we will meet Miguel Diaz played by Xolo Maridueña (Parenthood), a victim of bullying in high school who finds sanctuary under Johnny’s tutelage; Tanner Buchanan (Designated Survivor) Johnny’s son, Robby Keene, who does his best not to follow in his father’s footsteps; Courtney Henggeler (Mom) as Daniel’s wife and business partner Amanda; Mary Mouser (Freakish) as their “firecracker” daughter, Samantha; and guest-star Ed Asner playing Johnny’s old-school stepfather.

The official synopsis:

In the highly-anticipated return of two iconic characters, the arch-rivals from the legendary Karate Kid film series reunite over 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. Now living in the affluent hills of Encino, Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) leads an enviable life with his beautiful family, while running a successful string of car dealerships throughout the valley. Meanwhile, his high school adversary, Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), whose life has taken a rocky turn, seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo. Their lives inevitably become intertwined and the rivalry is reignited, setting forth the next generation of “karate kids” in COBRA KAI, a YouTube Red Original Series. COBRA KAI is produced by Overbrook Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television.
