7 Shows Like Cobra Kai Worth Streaming

Fans of The Karate Kid might like a few of these other hit series.

With Cobra Kai moving to Netflix in August from YouTube Red, the show is finally getting the attention it deserves. Set 34 years after the events of its film predecessor, The Karate Kid, the show reunites Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) as Lawrence opens a dojo with the same traditions in place as the one they had as teenagers. It's the ultimate throwback and boy are we glad it's here.

Unfortunately, the third season is set to debut in a faraway time of 2021 and there's only so many times we can replay The Karate Kid before we get sick of it. Lucky for us, there are plenty of other shows to watch in the meantime. From gritty dramas to dystopian futures, here's a list of shows not unlike our current Netflix action-comedy to help hold you over until next season.

There's drugs, familial disagreements, and a whole lot of fighting—perfect for taking that martial arts obsession to the next level.
