YouTube today dropped the highly-anticipated official trailer for SEASON 2 of the critically-acclaimed YouTube Original series COBRA KAI, premiering on YouTube Premium April 24, 2019.

When a new rivalry between opposing dojos is born in the aftermath of Cobra Kai's controversial win at the All Valley Championships, Daniel realizes his next countermove is to open his own karate training school called Miyagi-Do, in honor of his mentor Mr. Miyagi.
What was once a personal feud between Daniel and Johnny escalates beyond their differences to engulf their students, who as teenagers, are already challenged to figure out who they are and who they want to be. Which path will they follow - Cobra Kai or Miyagi-Do?
