Ralph Macchio to Star in 'Karate Kid' Sequel Series

Ralph Macchio will be reteaming with William Zabka for a sequel series to their classic film The Karate Kid!

YouTube Red has picked up 10 episodes of the half-hour comedy series, which will begin airing in 2018.

The show will take place 30 years after the events at the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. “A down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (Zabka) seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo, reigniting his rivalry with a now successful Daniel LaRusso (Macchio), who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi,” according to Variety.
