Cowboy Bebop is one of the most beloved anime properties of all time. Coming into existence in Japan during the late 90s, and hitting American airwaves not too long after, the science-fiction, western, and noir mashup has made a big impact on a lot of lives.
If you didn’t know, Netflix has been producing a live-action version of the beloved series. It is set to star John Cho (Star Trek, Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle) and was in early production in Australia. However, production has been suspended after Cho was injured on set on October 5th.
There are no real details as to the nature of the injury or how long recovery is expected to take. THR is reporting that Cho has returned to the United States for potential surgery and recovery. The series is expected to continue production in seven to nine months.
