John Cho is ready to jam. The actor straps on his cowboy boots Cowboy bebop, Premiering Friday on Netflix, and only ET has an exclusive taste of the expected series.
Based on the popular anime, the space western follows three bounty hunters, also known as “cowboys”, who are all trying to escape the past. As diverse as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel (Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir) and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) make up a shabby, vicious crew ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals – at the right price. But they can only get their way out of so many brawls and joke before their past finally catches up with them.
In the first look from the premiere episode, Spike and Jet have a tte-à-tête on the ship about the new bounty they are going to hunt. But, of course, Spike isn’t entirely convinced he’s hunting Jets Pitch after sneaking a peek at the villain his partner thinks is worth looking for – you know, so that Spike can enjoy that lobster meal.
When Jet reveals that Asimov, the villain in question, was last spotted in New Tijuana, Spike reacts immediately kills the idea of even setting foot in this territory. Bad memories and all. “Do you know what was the last time I got at TJ?” an angry Spike asks Jet, who jokes, “Herpes?”
“Stabbed. Do you know what i did Buy churro. There’s got to be better, Jet. Come on, ”he pleads.
“My daughter is turning eight and I can’t afford to buy her a present because of you she“Fires Jet back.” This is my ship now and as long as you’re on it we’ll chase the bounties I say. “
After pausing a beat, Spike – unimpressed by their little argument – finally asks, “Are you feeling better?”
How does Jet react? See the exclusive clip from Cowboy bebop, exclusive to ET above, to see what happens next.
Before the premiere, the cast gathered virtually to get a preview of the series.
“I think we were all excited just about that Bebop Set and look around and dig around, “said Pineda ET.” I was really hoping I would see one 90210 Reference because I couldn’t believe that was in the original anime. So I’ve been waiting for Jason Priestley to jump around a corner, but there’s still a season 2 [possibility]. So we’ll see. “
