Cobra Kai (Karate Kid 10 episode TV sequel) (2018)

Post by travisbickle » Sun Aug 06, 2017 9:11 am

Three decades after The Karate Kid, original stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are heading back to the dojo. The duo are set to reprise their roles as underdog Daniel LaRusso (Macchio) and bully Johnny Lawrence (Zabka) in a 10-episode straight-to-series follow-up called Cobra Kai for subscription service YouTube Red.

The series, set to bow in 2018, is set 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament and revolves around a down and out Johnny who, seeking redemption, reopens the infamous Cobra Kai dojo. It reignites his rivalry with a now-successful Daniel, who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi (the late Pat Morita). The half-hour comedy follows the duo addressing demons from their past and present frustrations — through (what else?) karate.

Josh Heald (Hot Tub Time Machine) as well as duo Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold and Kumar) will pen the script and exec produce alongside Macchio and Zabka. Hurwitz and Schlossberg will direct much of the series. Will Smith's Sony Pictures Television Studios-based Overbrook Entertainment will exec produce with James Lassiter and Caleeb Pinkett overseeing for the company.

Macchio and Zabka are expected to make an appearance Thursday at YouTube's portion of the Television Critics Association's summer press tour in Beverly Hills.

This being a comedy worries me, but I'm still interested.

The Karate Kid is a fucking classic (goes without saying) and one of my favorite movies.

I knew Travis would be the one to create this thread :) Man what's old is new again. The retro movement is showing no signs of slowing down. This is being made as a comedy though? I didn't know that.

I wonder how much of a comedy it'll really be tho

Supernatural is as much comedy as anything else sometimes

And Rosanne was pretty depressing really, tho you would never got that on air if it wasn't sold as a comedy

I would expect this to be self-depreciating and fairly serious after it's comedy aspects. I could be way off of course, but I wouldn't expect this to have a joke every 10-15 seconds or whatever
It was the cow...

I could live with a little bit of comedy, just as long as it doesn't end up being a parody.

Karate Kid is an absolute classic and this could be pretty good if the comedy is kept to a minimum

This type of post would typically get me going but when you're undeniably one of the greatest it's like mehhhhh

edit

And if you like Badlands for any reason beyond "cool Martin Sheen crime movie", you would like more Malick

edit 2

I'm arguing with a guy who made a thread for a Karate Kid show, enough said
