Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop Coming This Fall With Original Composer Yoko Kanno

John Cho’s injury on the set of Cowboy Bebop set the adaptation back a year. However, it’s finally on the horizon. As part of Geeked Week, Netflix revealed that Cowboy Bebop will finally debut this fall. Additionally, Netflix announced that Yoko Kanno will provide the music for the series. Kanno was the original composer for the Cowboy Bebop anime series, which also set the tone for the show.
