There is little doubt that people were disappointed when the live-action Cowboy Bebop series was cancelled only a few days after the first season aired. However, that doesn't mean that fans are just sitting around moping over the cancellation. The petition calling for the Netflix show's renewal has gathered almost 100,000 signatures from people who are eager to see what happens in Season 2!
Cowboy Bebop was one of the most anticipated live-action adaptations of 2021 since the show had a talented cast led by John Cho and even featured the work of the anime's original composer Yoko Kanno. However, the series was met by mixed reviews which possibly led to Netflix deciding to cancel the show just 10 days after its premiere.
It might seem like the show is finally over but fans are not giving up hope just yet. A petition on Change.org begging for Cowboy Bebop Season 2 has been steadily gaining new signatures since it was started back in December. As of writing, the petition already has 96,800 signatures and people are signing almost every minute. At this rate, it could reach 100,000 or more by the end of the month.
There's a good reason why fans are calling for Cowboy Bebop Season 2. The first season concluded with the Bebop crew separating after they all took on and defeated Vicious. The last thing we see is the battered Spike Spiegel being woken up by Radical Ed, who has found Ein and is telling Spike their next bounty is the Butterfly Man. This means there's a chance that the crew would reunite and go up against Vincent Volaju.
For now, Netflix has not yet announced whether Cowboy Bebop will be renewed after its cancellation. In the meantime, fans can enjoy the first season's 10 episodes which are all streaming on Netflix.
