Cowboy Bebop season 2: a sequel for the Netflix series? The Creator Already Has a Plan As season 1 of Cowboy Bebop – the live-action adaptation of the famous anime, lands on Netflix, a question already arises: can we expect a season 2, still worn by John Cho (Spike), Mustafa Shakir (Jet Black) and Daniella Pineda (Faye)? For now, the platform has not yet renewed the series. On the other hand, the creator assured him, after presenting Ed in the finale, he is ready for new episodes. Warning for spoilers.

Cowboy Bebop , the live-action adaptation of the anime of Shin'ichirō Watanabe by Netflix, will it have a season 2? To date, no indication of the future of the series has yet filtered. On the other hand, if the fiction seems to underperform with regard to the expectations placed in it and finds itself at the center of much criticism from the fans, the team is already ready for a sequel.

The creator ready for a season 2 of Cowboy Bebop

On the occasion of an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, André Nemec (the showrunner ) has indeed confided its intention to continue the adventure, “If Ted Sarandos [Netflix boss, editor's note] comes by, tell him I have huge plans for season 2. We really know where we want to go and I can't wait to be able to tell these stories . So we keep our fingers crossed for the right to more Cowboy Bebop “.

What kind of stories does he have in mind? Unsurprisingly, Nemec – who totally rewrote the anime's ending for the sake of his series, now hopes he can keep up with Spike's descent into hell. “He must face his own dilemma, which is to have made the wrong decision, which is now costing him dearly , the showrunner told Polygon. Elena has earned credit for taking control of this weapon and to think that it can press the trigger “.

First indications on the continuation

A dramatic situation for the hero which saddens in particular John Cho, his interpreter. The actor did not hide it, the end of the shooting was not the most encouraging, “It is terribly sad. I'm really disgusted with Spike, and the scene where we see Jet going away leaving him … It was devastating at the time “. Also, he and Mustafa Shakir (Jet Black) have now look forward to getting together to sort things out and move forward, “ No matter where we go, the jump will be huge, as was the crescendo of events “.

You will understand, it will be necessary to wait a little longer before having the right to more precise details, but one thing is already certain: this potential sequel will follow the same creative scheme as season 1 with a mixture of loyalty to Japanese work and adaptation to the American.

Asked about the evolution of Vicious in particular, André Nemec revealed, “ There is the potential to move further away from the story of this character's side now “. However, he clarified it later, there will be no question for him to forget the fundamentals of Cowboy Bebop for the rest: “ At the start of production, when we were in in the writing room, there was a question which was, 'What is your favorite episode and why?' And as we put them on the board, it became clear that we couldn't adapt them all. There are clearly passages, characters, scenes, universes … that I'm dying to explore “.

What convince fans and Netflix? To be continued.
