Will There Be A Season 2?
The first season of Cowboy Bebop premiered on November 19, 2021. But as of now, there has been no announcement about the renewal of the series for Cowboy Bebop Season 2. However, André Nemec, recently in an interview, stated his wish to make further seasons of the sci-fi series. The show gained significantly large viewership, which might result in its renewal. And if Cowboy Bebop Season gets a renewal in the future, fans can expect it to come around early 2023.
What Will Cowboy Bebop Season 2 Be About?
In the first season of Cowboy Bebop, fans saw Spike, Faye, and Jet saving Kimmie. Then Spike returned to settle his enmity with Vicious. However, when Spike and Vicious were on the verge of killing each other, Julia arrived on the scene. She shot Spike and kidnapped Vicious, snatching control of the Syndicate. Spike survived, but the rest of the Bebop crew disbanded. Faye also left for the quest in search of her biological mother. Finally, the season ended with Ed’s first appearance, who requested Spike’s assistance on a bounty.
So, if the show returns for Cowboy Bebop Season 2, it will likely pick up after the ending of the first season. Fans might see Spike and Ed on a quest together to apprehend Vincent Volaju, dubbed “the Butterfly Man” by Ed. In addition, Faye may be able to learn more about her biological family. And Vicious might break free from custody and attempt to take charge of the Syndicate from Julia.
Show’s writer Christopher Yost during an interview said that they have many awe-inspiring moments planned for the series. It will be directly from the source anime, assuming the show does return for season 2. In addition, Yost stated that “Across the lore of ‘Bepop’, there are certain episodes and stories that are just slam dunk, no-brainers to tell”. He further mentioned that he would certainly love to tell more of them.
