‘Cobra Kai’ Co-Creator Reveals His Rules for Successfully Rebooting Classic IP (Guest Column)

Ever since Cobra Kai premiered in 2018, I have heard some version of the following: “I can’t believe how much I loved your show, because whenever Hollywood attempts to bring back a classic movie franchise, it almost never works out.” Well, my co-creators Jon Hurwitz, Josh Heald and I completely understand where that sentiment comes from. Having grown up in the 1980s, we are the target audience for many of the repackaged/revamped/rebooted movie franchises we grew up with. We know what it’s like to get lured in by nostalgia, only to feel let down by a cash-grab that takes advantage...

'Cobra Kai' Season 4: Release Date, Cast, the Return of Terry Silver, and Everything We Know So Far

Netflix’s Cobra Kai is easily one of the most joyous adventures to watch on-screen no matter your generation. The Karate Kid spin-off series focuses on Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and Daniel LaRusso’s (Ralph Macchio) return to the martial arts as mentors about 30 years after their classic match in the first film. The breakout series originally debuted as a YouTube Red original took off, not only with the well-established 80s fanbase, but attracted a new audience with its fresh-faced and kick-ass rising stars. The show’s incredibly positive reception since it was acquired by Netflix even garnered a couple of recent Emmy nominations.

Why Johnny's Stepdad Sid Is More Important Than You Think In Cobra Kai

The pilot episode of "Karate Kid" sequel series "Cobra Kai" features neither longtime series lead Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) nor "The Next Karate Kid" protagonist Julie Pierce (Hilary Swank) as its star, but rather the villain of the original "Karate Kid," Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) in its central role. And as the series goes on, we find that Johnny is far from perfect, struggling with anger, adulthood, and plenty more. That said, Johnny possesses a prototypical heart of gold, showing care and compassion for the students of his Cobra Kai karate dojo when it matters. For example, in Season 3, he acts as the lynchpin in the recovery of his surrogate son Miguel Diaz (Xolo Maridueña) from an injury that has the potential to leave him without the ability to move his legs.

‘Cobra Kai’ Co-Showrunner on How Series Gives Expanded Recognition to ‘Karate Kid’ Franchise

When you bring a multi-decade story about the British monarchy to Netflix, perhaps you have visions of Emmys dancing in your head, but it’s doubtful that creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg had the same expectations when they brought their sequel to The Karate Kid to fledgling streamer YouTube Red. Cobra Kai did earn strong reviews and helped put YouTube Red on the map, but it wasn’t enough to keep the platform in the streaming scripted game, so the Ralph Macchio and William Zabka reunion moved to Netflix. Suddenly, Cobra Kai went from cult favorite to mainstream smash —...

Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry (Apple TV+)  For music director Aron Forbes, work on Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry began with going through archived recordings from live concerts. “We were digging as deep as we could to try and find multitrack recordings of everything.

A ‘Cobra Kai’ Co-Creator Shared His Tips On How To Make A Reboot That Doesn’t Stink

Most reboots of old shows and movies are not good. I will not list them all, because there’s so many, but here’s one: Mad About You, NBC’s Emmy-winning 1990s hit sitcom, was resurrected by Spectrum Originals for one forgotten season. The only positive thing to come from it is that Richard Kind got paid. But every so often, a good reboot will slip through cracks — even rarer is the great reboot. Cobra Kai is a great reboot.
