New COBRA KAI Teasers Introduce the Next Karate Kids

Next month, the decades-long rivalry that began in The Karate Kid will reignite in Cobra Kai, YouTube Red‘s new original series. Both Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are reprising their roles as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence, respectively. But while the tables have turned for Johnny and Daniel-san, their enmity may live on with their children in unexpected ways. Three new Cobra Kai teasers have set the stage for a new generation and unveiled the latest Karate Kids.

First up is Miguel Diaz, as played by Xolo Maridueña. Miguel appears to be the character most like Daniel in the first film. Miguel is bullied at school and he comes under the tutelage of a karate master who wants to improve his life. Unfortunately for Miguel, his sensei isn’t a gentle soul like Mr. Miyagi. Johnny’s his mentor, and he has no mercy for anyone, not even his students.

Daniel’s daughter, Samantha LaRusso (Mary Mouser), makes her debut in the second teaser. While Miguel’s teaser included a glimpse of the All-Valley Karate Tournament, it doesn’t appear Sam will be fighting there. However, she has picked up some karate from her dad. But Daniel won’t be very happy when he learns Sam is dating Miguel.

The last video focuses on Robby Keene (Tanner Buchanan). Don’t let his last name fool you, because he is Johnny’s son. Unfortunately for Johnny, he and Robby don’t exactly have a close relationship. And even Robby is throwing Johnny’s loss to Daniel back in his face. Harsh, bro!

The first episode of Cobra Kai will premiere on May 2.
