In an interview with Vanity Fair, writer and producer Christopher Yost said of the series,

“Hopefully a global audience embraces it, because we’ve got a lot more stories to tell.”

Yost continued, Across the lore of Bebop, there are certain episodes and stories that are just slam dunk, no-brainers to tell. And I would certainly love to tell more of them.”

Yost also said he's begun planning Season Two saying, “if there’s a season two, [I’m] just noodling on what the possibilities could be.”
