Cowboy Bebop is not returning for a second season. Netflix has canceled the live-action re-imagining of the anime series, per Deadline.
Starring John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, and Daniella Pined, the series premiered its first season on November 19th. The science-fiction series follows a group of misfit bounty hunters as they search for the galaxy’s worst criminals across the Solar System on the Bebop spaceship.
The series dealt with delays on its way to the streaming service. An on-set injury for Cho set back the production almost nine months. Once the series hit Netflix, it received criticism from both viewers and critics.
Here are some reactions from members of the cast and one of the show’s executive producers, Javier Grillo-Marxuach.
A joy to work on this with you ❤️
