What is the Cowboy Bebop release date?
The show was originally scheduled to release in 2020, around the spring or summer. However, things didn’t turn out the way they were planned, and due to John Cho’s knee injury, the production had to come to a stop. Nearly half a year passed by when again the production had to face a shutdown because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. After such long delays, the production came back on its track, and lately, the creators are sharing more teasers and information about the show’s release.
The writer and executive producer of the show, Jeff Pinkner, made an official announcement that the work is already underway on scripts for the next season as well. As far as the release date is concerned, everyone is confident that now, with things being on track, season 1 of Cowboy Bebop may probably drop sometime in 2021.
