There is no mercy with the new Karate Kid series, 'Cobra Kai'

YouTube just released footage of ‘Cobra Kai,’ the official Karate Kid sequel TV show

The reboot of the "Karate Kid" franchise starred Jackie Chan, Jaden Smith and Taraji P. Henson.

Named after the infamous dojo, Cobra Kai takes place 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, in which Daniel (Ralph Macchio) beat Johnny (William Zabka).

What Is Cobra Kai About? (And will Elisabeth Shue make a cameo?) It'll be a while until we find out for sure.

According to Entertainment Weekly, which debuted the trailer, the cast will include Parenthood's Xolo Maridueña as a bullied youngster who's mentored by Johnny, while Designated Survivor's Tanner Buchanan plays Johnny's son, who's fighting to escape his father's shadow. That doesn't sit well with Daniel, who has since been leading a picture-perfect life as a family man and successful vehicle dealer.

In fact, Daniel is so worked up that he blubbers, "Johnny, you and I, this... we aren't done".

Honestly, this series looks better than I anticipated, though admittedly this is a pretty short teaser. Origin stories be damned - maybe it will provide some redemption for The Karate Kid bully. Both Johnny and Daniel's voices can be heard in dueling narration, with Daniel very much against Cobra Kai reopening and Johnny echoing the harsh and cruel teachings of Kreese - his teacher from the original film.

The show will air 10 half-hour episodes written by "Hot Tub Time Machine" scribe Josh Heald and "Harold & Kumar" writers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg. The first teaser trailer for Cobra Kai has arrived, and it hints at the push back that Johnny receives when he reopens the dojo years after it closed in disgrace.
