YouTube announced today that Cobra Kai has been renewed for a second season on its subscription service, YouTube Red. The good news comes less than a week since the dramedy's premiere, which has so far received over 20 million views.

Acting as a follow-up to The Karate Kid film series, Cobra Kai is set 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. Still haunted by his past, Johnny Lawrence looks for redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo. But his old rivalry with Daniel LaRusso is reignited when their lives become intertwined with the up-and-coming generation of karate kids.

10 episodes have been ordered for Season 2 of Cobra Kai, matching the length of its freshman run. Look for a premiere in 2019.
