Based on the worldwide phenomenon from Sunrise Inc., Cowboy Bebop is the jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of a rag-tag crew of bounty hunters on the run from their pasts, as they hunt down the solar system's most dangerous criminals. They'll even save the world... for the right price.

Alex Garcia Lopez (The Witcher; Marvel's Daredevil and Marvel's The Punisher; Utopia) will direct the first two episodes.

The following cast are confirmed. Meanwhile, Radical Ed is hacking in, but not cast just yet. Plus more cast to be announced.

For extended character descriptions, visit NXonNetflix.

JOHN CHO (Star Trek, Searching) as Spike Spiegel

Spike Spiegel is an impossibly cool "cowboy" (bounty hunter) with a deadly smile, a wry wit, and style to spare. He travels the solar system with his ex-cop partner, Jet, pursuing the future's most dangerous bounties with a combination of charm, charisma -- and deadly Jeet Kune Do.

MUSTAFA SHAKIR (Marvel's Luke Cage) as Jet Black

Jet Black was one of the few honest cops in the solar system before an ultimate betrayal robbed him of all that he loved, forcing him into a vagabond life of hunting bounties to put food on the table. Jet is an inveterate jazz enthusiast and Captain of the Bebop.

DANIELLA PINEDA (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom; What/If) as Faye Valentine

Faye Valentine is a bold, brash and unpredictable bounty hunter. Suffering from amnesia after years of being cryogenically frozen, Faye does whatever it takes to survive. Whether she's lying, stealing, or just being a thorn in Spike and Jet's side.

ALEX HASSELL (The Red Sea Diving Resort; Suburbicon) as Vicious

A man who thoroughly enjoys a good kill, Vicious is the Syndicate's most notorious hitman. He's also Spike Spiegel's ex-partner and arch-enemy.
