Cowboy Bebop season 2: Showrunner has big plans if Netflix renews the series

Cowboy Bebop, season 2, Netflix

Cowboy Bebop will launch on Netflix in just a couple of days but showrunner André Nemec is already prepared for season 2 of the series. Although Netflix hasn’t officially renewed Cowboy Bebop for a second season, Nemec told THR that he’s got some “big plans” if they should be fortunate enough to continue.

If Ted Sarandos comes by, you tell him I got big plans for season two. We definitely know where we want to go, and I’m excited that we get to tell those stories. Fingers crossed that we get more Cowboy Bebop.

Although the original Cowboy Bebop anime series has become iconic, there were only 26 episodes produced, so it stands to reason that at some point, the live-action Netflix series will go beyond the source material. “Well, what did happen?” Nemec said. “And I’m like, ‘Well, I’ve got an answer!’” Executive producer Becky Clements added that they were very afraid of screwing the live-action series up because the original anime is so beloved. “We were terrified because the fan base was so loyal,” Clements said. “We always had an eye toward making sure we kept the integrity of the original in the live-action. What do you hope to see in Cowboy Bebop season 2 if the show returns?

Reviews for Cowboy Bebop recently dropped and although many were mixed, our own Alex Maidy was pretty enthusiastic about the series. “I could not get through these ten episodes fast enough but there are one of the most rewatchable Netflix series I can remember,” Maidy wrote in his review. “This series is non-stop fun that is going to be as much fun for young viewers as it will be for long-time fans of the original series.

The official synopsis for Cowboy Bebop:

COWBOY BEBOP is an action-packed space Western about three bounty hunters, aka “cowboys,” all trying to outrun the past. As different as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) form a scrappy, snarky crew ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals — for the right price. But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them.

Cowboy Bebop will debut on Netflix on November 19th.
