Johnny and Daniel come to the conclusion that they need to work together to safeguard their students as other movie characters start to return.

Cobra Kai cast, William Zabka (@william_zabka), and his wife, Stacie Zabka, have been married since 2008. The pair also has two kids and seem to have a perfect family. Although it is unknown when William and Stacie met, their wedding took place over 25 years after the release of the first Karate Kid movie. Only their closest family and friends were invited by the couple to the wedding. The Johnny Lawrence actor also made sure that the wedding venue was hidden from the paparazzi's prying eyes.
William has been outspoken about parenting his two sons, despite the fact that he and Stacie kept their personal and business lives apart. They have chosen to hide their children from the media. They hardly ever post pictures of the kids on social media or bring them with them to gatherings where they might be captured by photographers.
Even their children's names have never been made public by them. William Zabka actor did share a photo of himself holding his two kids while standing on the beach back in 2015. Although their faces were hidden, it appeared that they shared their father's blond hair. In a January 2021 interview with People, William referred to himself as a camp counselor-type guy. He explained,
One thing I’ve learned about having the responsibility of being a father is that you think it’s going to take your time, but it feeds you.
After many years in Hollywood, William Zabka and his wife appear to have worked out how to maintain a strict separation between their personal and professional lives, and it seems to be working for William and his spouse. If you look at Zabka's Instagram feed, it is mostly made up of content relating to Cobra Kai and has very few, if any, personal photos. He has been largely secretive throughout his career and hasn't really opened up to many members of the media about his life outside of performing.
Although they often keep their personal and professional lives apart, it is obvious that his wife, Stacie, is a huge supporter of William Zabka. She has been spotted with him at numerous red carpet events over the years, posing for pictures with him on occasions including the Tribeca Film Festival and the 2010 Karate Kid reboot launch, according to Legit.

It's a matter of how many we're gonna get to do that, but there's definitely an endgame. We're gonna end the series, and then I think we're gonna do a trilogy of films.
