There's a karate war brewing in the Valley!
On Tuesday, Netflix released the official trailer for the fifth season of Cobra Kai, and it's intense.
Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) is hell-bent on expanding the teachings of the Cobra Kai and enlists a group of senseis to help him with his plan.
Meanwhile, Johnny (William Zabka) has once again decided to push karate aside to drive rideshare leaving Daniel (Ralph Macchio) to try to save the Valley with the help of foe-turned-friend Chozen (Yuji Okumoto).
The action-packed two-minute trailer teases lots of karate (of course), Johnny and Daniel reuniting again, Johnny and Chozen kicking ass, Miguel (Xolo Maridueña) and Robbie (Tanner Buchanan) having another fight-off, and Kreese (Martin Kove) making 'friends' in prison after Terry framed him.

Last week the streaming service teased the return of Sean Kanan, who played the villain Mike Barnes in the third Karate Kid movie.
While his role has been kept under wraps, Deadline reports executive producers Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg teased: "As Terry Silver [Thomas Ian Griffith] calls upon some old friends to put the Valley in a stranglehold, Daniel and Johnny are going to need all the help they can get to stop Cobra Kai in its tracks."
The Emmy-nominated series takes place over 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament with the continuation of the inescapable conflict between Daniel LaRusso Macchio and Johnny Lawrence.
