Viewers of the original anime will certainly be curious to see how the flesh-and-blood incarnations of Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), Spike Spiegel (John Cho), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) compare to the popular animated counterparts. The ten-episode Season 1 is without a question one of the most significant and exciting November debuts on the streaming site, and expectations are strong that the program will continue its first season. In fact, showrunner Andre Nemec of “Cowboy Bepop” has already hinted at some huge ideas for Season 2.

The wacky, genre-bending series has plenty of tales left to adapt, and it is no surprise that the Netflix version’s creators are ready to tell them. But when can a new season of the currently reside program be expected, and what would it be about? Let us take a look at everything we know about Netflix’s “Cowboy Bepop” Season 2 official release, characters, and narrative.

When will Cowboy Bepop Season 2 be released?

Though Season 2 of “Cowboy Bepop” has yet to be approved by Netflix, fans need not be concerned. After all, Season 1 debuted on November 19, so the streamer may want to check and see how well it does before committing to a second season. According to Rotten Tomatoes, initial impressions of “Cowboy Bepop” were not especially positive, but the numbers game does not care the critics. If Season 1 of “Cowboy Bepop” performs well enough, the program is very certain to be renewed, and word of renewal might arrive at any time.

If Season 2 of “Cowboy Bepop” is approved, the production and advertising cycle for a program like this will be similar to that of popular Netflix productions like “Stranger Things,” which released new seasons each 16 to 21 months prior to the COVID-19 epidemic. If this is any hint, fresh seasons of Netflix’s “Cowboy Bepop” will most likely premiere in mid-to-late 2023.

Who is in the Cowboy Bepop Season 2 cast?

If “Cowboy Bepop” is renewed for season two, you can bet that the cast of the Bepop will return to fight the next one. As a consequence, John Cho, Daniella Pineda, and Mustafa Shakir, who play Spike Spiegel, Faye Valentine, and Jet Black, will reprise their respective roles. The Welsh corgi Ein and the final bipedal member of the team, hacking specialist “Radical” Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivruski IV (played by Eden Perkins), are expected to round out the group.

Besides the crucial cast, every key character who survives the incidents of Season 1 is almost certain to return in some form or another and, as Julia (Elena Satine) and Vicious (Alex Hassell) demonstrated in Season 1; their functions could be significantly expanded from what you recall from the animated films. Of course, since this is “Cowboy Bepop,” there is a slew of iconic one-episode personalities who have yet to make a comeback in the live-action program.

What happens in Season 2 of Cowboy Bepop?

According to, the original “Cowboy Bepop” anime is not exceptionally lengthy. It does, however, include 26 episodes, which should be enough to maintain the live-action adaptation’s gears moving for three or four series if the audience wants it and Netflix allows it. As a result, Season 2 of the live-action adaptation would almost definitely continue the anime version’s overarching storyline, with a level of loyalty to the original source similar to Season 1. Based on how the fans received the first season, you can reasonably expect a few cliffhangers and tweaks in the next season.

Writer Christopher Yost remarked in a conversation with Vanity Fair that if the series gets a second installment, the old “Cowboy Bepop” still has lots of fantastic moments that the Netflix adaptation would want to explore. 

How many episodes will be featured in Cowboy Bebop’s forthcoming season?

If the showrunner decides to make a new version of Cowboy Bebop, it might include ten or more episodes, much like the previous seasons. As a consequence, we may expect at least ten episodes in the next season.

Season 1 of Cowboy Bebop lays the foundation for Season 2

It is worth noting that Cowboy Bebop season 2 is arranged to go in a very different way than the animation version, with the last episode hinting that Spike’s affair, Julia, may become the show’s major enemy. This is especially noteworthy since it almost entirely changes her role in the play while keeping the core idea the same. She is indeed a specter of Spike’s background and remorse, but it seems to be poised to turn against him this time. While this change distances the Netflix adaptation of Cowboy Bebop from its roots, it does make the second season a more intriguing proposition.

Is there a trailer for Cowboy Bebop Season 2?

Nope. The program has not even been approved for a season 2, so do not hold your breath for a trailer.
