Fans of the classic anime series Cowboy Bebop should get excited as it has been revealed that the first season of Netflix’s live-action adaption has finished! The news came from an Instagram post by Daniella Pineda, who plays Faye Valentine in the series.
In her post, she can be seen wearing a Cowboy Bebop shirt, with her hair styled into a very Faye Valentine like style!
The series originally began filming in 2019 but found its production halted due to an on-set injury to John Cho who is playing Spike Speigel. It was further delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cowboy Bebop started as an anime space western directed by Shinichirō Watanabe. It follows the crew of the Bebop as they hunt bounties and wealth across the solar system. It quickly gained praise for its sense of style, its captivating characters, engrossing musical score (featuring the iconic Yoko Kanno), and narrative.
The Netflix adaption will star John Cho as Spike Spiegal, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black, Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine, Alex Hassel as Vicious, and Elena Satine as Julia.
Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop was originally slated for a 2020 release but currently has a 2021 release. In the meantime to tie you over…
