Cho suffered a knee injury in October of this year, delaying production by roughly eight months. On April 17, 2020, further information about the project was released, including the fact that episodes will be one hour long, allowing for a more in-depth narrative, and that a second season script was mentioned as a possibility. During an interview with SyFy Wire on May 19, 2020, Adelstein said that there are now three completed episodes and that at least six episodes were shot prior to Cho’s knee injury. Shinichir Watanabe, the anime series’ director, was confirmed to be collaborating with the project as a creative consultant during the same interview.
Following the nation’s COVID-19 closure, the New Zealand government granted the green light to resume production on September 30, 2020. Filming was completed on March 15, 2021. Original program creator Hajime Yatate, really a pseudonym for the collective Sunrise animation crew, expressed interest in authoring episodes of the series in August 2021.
Netflix offered a first look in October 2019 from the perspective of Ein, showcasing several settings and the major actors. The signature line “See You Space Cowboy…” was also utilized, as well as music from the original series. In June 2021, Netflix relaunched the show’s marketing campaign with a new trailer set to the original show’s opening theme, “Tank!” to reveal that Yoko Kanno will be composing the series’ music after previously scoring the 1998 anime.
Netflix released first-look preview images for the show in August 2021, along with the announcement of a November release date. The images featured Spike, Jet, Faye, and Ein in various environments recreated from the anime, including the Bebop and the cathedral where Vicious and Spike had their first confrontation.
During Netflix’s TUDUM event, the show’s opening credits were shown, which mimicked the anime’s beginning with “Tank!” and live-action recreations of the original.
