The first teaser trailer for the online series Cobra Kai is finally here. The footage ends with Daniel confronting his old foe in the dojo, stating, "Johnny, you and I, this, we aren't done".

Get ready for The Karate Kid to become a TV series on YouTube Red.

The teaser doesn't offer much more in the way of plot, but it does hit us with a cluster bomb of old-school Karate Kid references: the tournament bracket from the All Valley Karate Championship; old newspaper clippings of Daniel with his late mentor Mr. Miyagi; and Johnny donning his black sleeveless Cobra Kai uniform and Daniel tying on his classic blue-and-white headband.

Watch out for Cobra Kai on YouTube Red later this year. As Johnny's life is taking a turn for the worst, he is seeking redemption by reopening the infamous old dojo.

Are you looking forward to seeing Johnny and Daniel resume their rivalry?

Cobra Kai takes place in present day, where the former karate championship opponents are now adults struggling to find balance in their lives. With Mr. Miyagi's life lessons, Daniel has found personal success in his own family and career as a auto dealer.




"We do not train to be merciful here", Johnny said.

According to Entertainment Weekly, which debuted the trailer, the cast will include Parenthood's Xolo Maridueña as a bullied youngster who's mentored by Johnny, while Designated Survivor's Tanner Buchanan plays Johnny's son, who's fighting to escape his father's shadow.

Ed Asner will guest star as Johnny's stepfather, Sid Weinberg. "Johnny, you and I.this, we aren't done", he says in the teaser.

Courtney Henggeler (Mom) will play Daniel's wife and business partner, Amanda, while Mary Mouser (Freakish) plays their firecracker daughter, Samantha.

The reboot of the "Karate Kid" franchise starred Jackie Chan, Jaden Smith and Taraji P. Henson.
