After a while, certain live-action adaptations of anime enter the "I'll believe it when I see it" zone. Netflix's live-action spin on Cowboy Bebop is determined not to fall into that category as it becomes more real each month, and according to the latest update they just finished filming the first season.
This was revealed via Daniella Pineda's Instagram. The actress—who is in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and the upcoming Jurassic World: Dominion as Zia Rodriguez, among other roles—plays Faye Valentine in the adaptation. Her post says, "I'm coming back to the air to say…..Season 1 of COWBOY BEBOP is finally, finished. Gonna dip again but will return after these messages."
This comes after a few setbacks during production, first when lead actor John Cho—who plays Spike Spiegel in the series—broke his knee while filming. After that, COVID-19 hit and caused further delays, so it's nice to see everything is back on track for the first season.
Hopefully it turns out to be a decent adaptation, too, because a second season of Cowboy Bebop is reportedly already in the works.
