‘Karate Kid’ TV Reboot In The Works

Will this latest nostalgia project be the best…around?!

Per The Hollywood Reporter, a 10 episode mini-series called Cobra Kai has been picked up by YouTube Red subscription service and is set for premiere at some point in 2018.

Cobra Kai will star both Ralph Macchio and Billy Zabka as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence, respectively.  The series itself (which is being billed as a comedy) will take place 30 years after the legendary All Valley Karate Tournament and finds Johnny reopening the Cobra Kai dojo, while Daniel is mourning the loss of Mr. Miyagi.

It seems like there’s an abundance of reboots/revivals as of late, but will you check out the series or opt to sweep the leg?  Let us know in the comments
