Cowboy bebop is the story of a crew of unsuccessful interstellar bounty hunters called “cowboys.” As one of those “cowboys” and part of the crew of the space trawler of the same name Bebop, Faye is part of the main set of the series. She is haunted by a mysterious past that drives some of the heaviest moments in the anime series, including the penultimate story “Hard Luck Woman.”

The live-action adaptation, which is being produced by Tomorrow Studios for release on Netflix, was announced in June 2017. Since then, circumstances have caused more than a few production delays. Filming had to stop in October 2019 when star John Cho was injured, and the global pandemic caused further delays when New Zealand, where the series is being filmed, crashed. Production finally resumed in September 2020 and concluded on March 15, 2021. While no official release date has been announced, the series is expected to premiere on Netflix sometime in 2021.
Cowboy bebop starring John Cho as Spike Spiegel, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black, Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine, Alex Hassell as Vicious, Elena Satine as Julia, Geoff Stults as Chalmers, Tamara Tunie as Ana, Mason Alexander Park as Gren, Rachel House as Mao and Ann Truong and Hoa Xuande as Shin and Lin. The Netflix series has yet to receive a release date.
