The actor who plays Johnny from The Karate Kid shared a photo of himself and his onscreen son, Robby. It’s unclear what the story is about, but speculations are that it could be related to the latest reboot film in 2019.
William Zabka is teasing the upcoming storyline of Johnny and Robby’s story. He posted a picture on Instagram that he captioned with “Johnny & Robby”.
Tanner Buchanan & Getty William Zabka
Johnny Lawrence (William “Billy” Zabka) has a tumultuous relationship with his teenage son, Robby Keene, in the Emmy-nominated series “Cobra Kai” (Tanner Buchanan). Robby, who feels betrayed by both his father and his instructor Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio), forms an alliance with vicious sensei John Kreese in season three (Martin Kove).
The youngster may be seen teaching his fellow Cobra Kai students methods that Daniel had taught him in the teaser for “Cobra Kai” season 4, which debuted on December 9, 2021.
In a December 2021 interview, William Zabka discussed Johnny and Robby’s relationship.
William “Billy” Zabka spoke with Screen Rant in December 2021 about his character’s bond with his son in Season 4, which will broadcast on December 31, 2021. Fans might anticipate Johnny to date Miguel Diaz’s (Xolo Mariduea) mother, Carmen, portrayed by Vanessa Rubio, according to him. The actor went on to say that the owner of Eagle Fang regards Miguel as “his son.”
“At the heart of who Johnny is, he wants to be a good father figure, a good mentor, and a good father to Robby [Tanner Buchanan].” And he intends to fight for it. Miguel has Johnny’s heart, and I adore their connection. “Wherever they go, it’s going to be a fantastic adventure,” Zabka added.
He went on to say that Johnny would have a hard time connecting with Robby. “He has entirely turned his back on his father,” he said of the wayward adolescent. According to Zabka, who spoke to the magazine,
Johnny must let him go and see what all the fuss is about. He loves his kid and wishes he could persuade him to follow his counsel, but it’s like talking to a stone wall. Kids grow up and go their own way, and there comes a time when it’s time to let go. Johnny, on the other hand, is desperate for a bond with his kid. Johnny is going through a difficult time. He wants his kid back, but will he be able to do so? We’ll have to wait and see.
Tanner Buchanan Discussed Robby’s Attitude Toward His Father
Tanner Buchanan said in a December 2020 interview with Entertainment Weekly that he knows why Robby resents his father. Shannon Michelle Keene (Diora Baird), his character’s mother, was an alcoholic, according to him.
“First and foremost, Johnny’s father abandoned him when he was born; he has never had a father. His mother has struggled with drugs, several relationships, and alcohol, and she has never been present for him, so he has never had parents. “He’s always been in the wrong crowd, and they clearly haven’t taught him how to do things properly,” the actor said.
He also showed compassion for Robby, stating that his girlfriend, Samantha (Mary Mouser), had broken up with him when he was doing time for inadvertently hospitalizing Miguel.
“The girl he truly liked when he was in juvie has reconnected with her ex [Miguel], so it’s not like he gets a break,” Buchanan said.
The actor said, “My character would benefit from going to counseling.”
“He clearly has to do a lot of inner work. I’m not sure how he’d go about it since I imagine these therapy sessions would last hours every day,” Buchanan said.
