The space Western hails from Tomorrow StudiosMarty Adelstein’s joint venture with ITV StudiosMidnight Radio; writer Chris Yost; and Sunrise, the studio behind the original series. 

Pineda joins a cast that includes John ChoMustafa Shakirand Alex Hassell.

In addition, Alex Garcia Lopez(The Witcher;Marvel’s Daredeviland The Punisher) will direct the first two episodes.

Written and executive produced by Yost, Cowboy Bebop is the jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of a ragtag 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.

Shakir is Jet Black, 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, Spike’s partner and captain of the Bebop.

Pineda is Faye Valentine, 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 (Cho) and Jet’s (Shakir) side.

Cowboy Bebopis co-produced by Netflix and Tomorrow Studios. Netflix will handle physical production. 

Pineda’s previous credits include roles in The CW’s The Originalsand the film Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
