Cobra Kai: Season 2 (2019)

Cobra Kai

Critics Consensus

While Cobra Kai's subversive kick no longer carries the same gleeful impact of its inaugural season, its second round is still among the best around -- no amount of mid-life crisis and teenage ennui's ever gonna keep it down.

Critic Reviews for Cobra Kai Season 2

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (7)

The series remains entertaining despite its flaws, and fortunately it has a hero that negotiates this disconnect between retro mindset and contemporary consciousness.

Cobra Kai remains more entertaining and well-executed than it has any right to be.

Apr 26, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Season 2 of the YouTube series is, if anything, better than the first -- a teen soap, largely, which also packs a wryly nostalgic kick.

Top Critic

It is an emotionally rich series, but it's also super fun to watch.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

The return of John Kreese completely changes the tonic of the series with more hits than errors. [Full Review in Spanish]

May 14, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Cobra Kai Season 1 was one of the most binge-worthy shows in recent history, and we're happy to report Season 2 absolutely follows suit.

May 6, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Cobra Kai turned out to be far better than it had any right to be.

May 3, 2019 | Full Review…

It's not perfect, but it interrogates a lot of social issues through the lens of a weird karate themed school drama set in 2019 and it shouldn't work, but... it does.

May 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Having stripped off most of the set-up shackles of the first season, things get lean, mean, and more focused in the 10-episode second season.

Apr 26, 2019 | Full Review…

If Cobra Kai is returning for a third act, my best hope is that an otherwise forgivable mess was contained to its second. No one, much less an Oscar nominee, should be asked back for clean-up duty.

Apr 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Daniel LaRusso will always be the Karate Kid, but Johnny Lawrence has morphed into the most compelling character on TV.

Apr 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Every episode of Cobra Kai Season 2 consists of 30 minutes of fun, teen drama, fan service, and many fights. [Full review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Cobra Kai: Season 2

  • Jul 25, 2020
    While Cobra Kai season two lacks in some aspects, it basically picks up right where the story left and elevates it even further. With more and more action packed moments, interesting characters and character development, incredible acting, captivating moments and also the highly anticipated return down nostalgia road, Cobra Kai kicks the shit out of any other Action Drama. My only complaint with this series is the seemingly useless characters. Other wise Cobra Kai doesn't look like it will slow down anytime soon.

    Best show ever loved this season as much as the first!!!
  • May 17, 2020
    beautiful series, takes me back to the 80s with a look to the future, contrasting the naivety of those years with the sacredness of today's young people full of technological objects
  • Apr 27, 2020
    The return-of-John-Kreese storyline was a bit frustrating to me. Everything else was phenomenal. LOVED the finale episode.
  • Apr 11, 2020
    Cobra Kai's a must see for anyone who enjoys nostalgia, action, character, and even some humor. Season One struck first with absolute perfection but season two picked right up and delivered merciless scripting, acting, and flow. Bring on season 3!
  • Feb 22, 2020
    Outstanding! As good, or better, than Season One.
  • Jan 29, 2020
    The first season was splendid. This second season is focusing too much on some relationship drama between the kids MTV style. Not a big fan of the lovelife and relationship heavy stuff. It's turning into every tv show ever made. I loved this show because it was about the Karate Kid stuff, so I really hope they find their way back into being a Karate Kid show and not just another generic teen drama with a Karate Kid boon every now and then. Please put the Karate Kid touch back into Cobra Kai again. And please keep out the depressing stuff - it's not why I came to love the Karate Kid (the best single movie and trilogy ever made byw!).

    The epiccness continues
  • Jan 17, 2020
    So brilliant, I couldn't stop watching. So many years after Karate Kid, who'd have thought that I would have been totally on Johnny Lawrence's side? Really mindblowing!
  • Jan 15, 2020
    I hope they keep this going!!!
