In the midst of Geeked Week, Netflix has revealed the live-action cast and composer for its upcoming Cowboy Bebop series.
Today, during its Geeked Week event, Netflix revealed the live-action cast for its upcoming live-action remake of the beloved Cowboy Bebop anime. The main cast includes John Cho as Spike, Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black, and Alex Hassell as Vicious.
Furthermore, it was also revealed that the anime’s original composer, Yoko Kanno, will return to compose for the live-action series, which will bring a nice touch of continuity to the new series, as the music for Cowboy Bebop is equally beloved as much as the series itself.
Cowboy Bebop follows Spike and his ragtag crew as they travel across the frontiers of space, working as bounty hunters and meeting colorful intergalactic characters along the way. Spike’s nemesis, Vicious, lurks somewhere in the universe waiting for their ultimate confrontation.
Cowboy Bebop will premiere on Netflix this fall.
