Cobra Kai (named after the dojo where Johnny Lawrence first learned the ways of karate from his slimy sensei Kreese) will reportedly pick up the story of Daniel LaRusso as a successful businessman and family man decades removed from his days as a karate kid. Unlike Daniel, Johnny’s life has not gone in a particularly positive direction, and when we pick up his story, he’s cleaning septic tanks and occasionally being mistaken for a homeless person. Johnny’s big dream is to bring back the Cobra Kai school (the poor guy apparently peaked before his 20s), but his only student is a store clerk named Miguel who, like Daniel before him, is being tormented by bullies.
Daniel and Johnny re-enter each other’s lives due to one of those wild twists of fate that can only happen in works of fiction: It turns out Miguel’s tormentor is a wrestler named Kyler who happens to also be dating Daniel’s daughter Samantha. This can take us in one of two directions: Either Daniel turns out to be the villain of the piece, a real twist indeed, or he remembers his own past as a bullied kid and joins up with his old enemy Johnny to bring the Cobra Kai school back to life.
