When Netflix’s live-action Cowboy Bebop series premieres on November 19, fans are in for a treat with the Japanese language version. For the first time since the Cowboy Bebop: Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door anime film in 2001, the entire Japanese cast is getting back together to reprise their roles, so get ready for a very interesting type of nostalgia with this one.

Returning voice cast members set to dub over John Cho and the rest of the series’s actors include Koichi Yamadera as Spike Spiegel, Taiten Kusunoki as Jet Black, Megumi Hayashibara as Faye Valentine, Norio Wakamoto as Vicious, Gara Takashima as Julia, Tsutomu Tareki as Punch, Miki Nagasawa as Judy, Takaya Hashi as Teddy Bomber, Masako Isobe as Mao, and Kenyu Horiuchi as Gren.

Romi Park and Hikaru Midorikawa will dub the voices of Shin and Lin, respectively.

If you’re looking to go even more authentic, Netflix announced plans to start streaming the original Cowboy Bebop anime worldwide on October 21.
