Moreover, they rarely disappoint. Netflix announced back in 2018 they would be co-producing 10 episodes with Tomorrow Studios. Fast forward to this year. Six more actors/actresses have been announced. Starting with the main characters, Let’s take a look!

|What’s Cowboy Bebop ??

Cowboy Bebop is usually explained as the genre-bending anime phenomenon of the 90s. Still worshiped today, this series has western, SiFi, and film noir flavors and takes place around the 2070s. After an accident when the hyperspace gateway made the Earth almost uninhabitable, humans colonized the solar system. In a dystopian solar system, the main characters fly through space aboard the “bebop”. They are bounty hunters aka “cowboys” and each of them has a sad, traumatic back story that they can’t break away from. Will they hold on to the past? Or will they let go, and try to move on and make a better life.

A bunch of new actors are joining the cast of Netflix’s  Cowboy Bebop, and many of the characters are going to look a bit different. According to  While Netflix has changed the name of Jet Black’s former partner, he appears to be based on Fad from the anime. In the original show, he played a pivotal role in why Jet left the ISSP.
