Generally speaking, the series takes place in a future where Earth has been largely abandoned and other planets in the solar system have been terraformed. The galaxy hires “cowboys,” a name for bounty hunters who make a living catching outlaws throughout known space.

The series follows the misadventures of three such cowboys: Spike Spiegel (John Cho), a martial artist with a cool attitude; Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), an ex-cop; and Faye Valentine (Danielle Pineda), a sultry femme fatale with no memory of her past. These three amoral freelancers ride aboard the Bebop and go on the prowl across planets for wanted bad guys.

The show is executive produced by André Nemec, writer of films like Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s based on the original anime by Shinichirō Watanabe, who functioned in the role of creative consultant.

Danielle Pineda stars as “Faye Valentine,” one of the three main characters in Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop.
