Netflix surprised fans earlier this week when it was announced that Cowboy bebop’s The live-action adaptation would not be returning for a second season, and while Daniella Pineda, also known as Faye Valentine, commented on the series finale, her co-star Mustafa Shakir has followed suit. On his official Instagram account, the actor who played Jet Black thanked Netflix for the opportunity to play the remake of the classic anime character while mourning the loss of the show that adapted what many believe to be the best anime series ever. done. .
Shakir had this to say about the series’ cancellation:
“What a cool opportunity right ?! I got to play Jet Black! I will never stop being him … so to speak. That’s great for me. Netflix got out of hand for us to do it. They really seemed out for us. us when shit hit the fan. 👏🏿👏🏿 but at the end of the day business is business and this was a big ship that needed a lot of fuel. Maybe the haters and critics got us maybe not that good as we think. 🤷🏾♂️ all I know is we did this in the craziest conditions and I’m proud of what we did. Thanks for dreaming about us. See ya space cowboys🦾🤠🔥🚀✨ “
While there was a lot of criticism from fans about the new series, Shakir’s performance as Jet was one of the most universally praised aspects of the world’s remake of Cowboy bebop. In our series review, we had this to say about this remake of Jet Black, the father figure to the bounty hunters who inhabit the spaceship known as Bebop, as well as the other stars of the show:
“In tackling this 10-episode recreation, we should eliminate some of the good things about this vehicle starring John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, and Daniella Pineda as the main Bebop trio in Spike, Jet, and Faye. Their chemistry The One With The One Another is the show’s greatest strength, as each of the actors presents the cast as a family who loves to see each other joking around as they prepare for their next big soundtrack. Clearly, each of the actors is here. in love with his characters and that shows the audience, with the back and forth creating an interesting atmosphere and a sense of fun. “
