This series created by Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg should offer new story arcs and include some elements of the past of each of the characters.

Spike Spiegel, Faye Valentine and Jet Black will roam the solar system aboard the Bebop and search for criminals, while confronting the ghosts of their past.
