John Cho acts as the series’ protagonist Spike Spiegel (Yamadera Kouichi), with his fellow bounty hunters Jet Black (Kusunoki Taiten) and Faye Valentine (Hayashibara Megumi) as Mustafa Shakir and Daniella Pineda respectively. In addition, Elena Satine plays the role of Julia (Takashima Gara), while Alex Hassel will play Vicious (Wakamoto Norio).

Netflix describes the series as:
COWBOY BEBOP is an action-packed space Western about three bounty hunters, aka “cowboys,” all trying to outrun the past. As different as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) form a scrappy, snarky crew ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals — for the right price. But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them.
