Cobra Kai, the sort-of sequel to the 1980s hit movie The Karate Kid, has been one of the breakout TV hits of 2018. Now the popular web series has a chance to prove it’s no one-hit wonder ⏤ YouTube Red officially renewed it for a second season.

Set 30 years after the events of the Karate Kid, the show revisits life-long rivals Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso as two middle-aged men. And, get this, once again they’re brought together to battle it out at the Cobra Kai dojo. Except this time, of course, they aren’t the ones fighting. They’re now Mr. Miyaki and Sensei Kreese, having taken on the mentor roles in a classic showdown that comes to a head at another karate tournament. Because old habits die hard.
