The Karate Kids sequel, Cobra Kai, is able to take down silly parts of the original films and spin them into interesting and sometimes even profound parts of the new show. In this regard, Terry Silver is an ultra-wealthy businessman who takes everything he is doing to gainrevenge against a teenager and his kindly karate teacher he never met because they were meant to his buddy? Okay!
Terry Silver is back to Johnny Lawrence, who is now on the run from Karate Kid Part III. Mike Barnes is essentially a talented and compassionate student. But think about all the similarities and disadvantages thatCobra Kai has brought to Johnny throughout the years. I anticipate Mike to shine in this series in a whole new light.
Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg would only inform Tudumas Terry Silver of their desire to put the Valley in a stranglehold, but Daniel and Johnny will need all of the help they can to get to keep Cobra Kai in the tracks.
Here's the first image of Kanan returning as Mike Barnes, along with several new photographs from Season 5 ofCobra Kai:
