Karate Kid stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are all set to reprise their iconic roles as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence, respectively. The duo will star in a 10-episode, half-hour series titled Cobra Kai on subscription service YouTube Red, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The series comes nearly three decades after the martial arts drama released.

The show, which will premiere in 2018, will be set 30 years after the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament and follow the duo once again reigniting their rivalry.

While Johnny seeks redemption, a seemingly successful Daniel struggles to get through life without his mentor, Mr. Miyagi, who was originally played by late actor Pat Morita.
