Is Cowboy Bebop Season 2 All-Set to Return on Netflix?
Since season one of Cowboy is going to be out this year, there is a possibility that we might get a season 2 in the next one or two years. However, the original Japanese anime had a single season; hence season 2 seems difficult. But if the previous season is a hit, the makers might think about making another season or maybe a sequel. So even though nothing is fixed about season 2, we can always hope for the best.
If things like the solar system and the galaxy interest you, this series is probably your right choice. So what are you waiting for? Watch season one of the series Cowboy Bebop and hope you get a season two soon.
