Announced as part of its Geeked Week event, Netflix confirmed that the live-action anime adaptation would be premiering on its service this fall, along with the addition of music legend Yoko Kanno.

Netflix describes the series: “A ragtag crew of bounty hunters chases down the galaxy’s most dangerous criminals. They’ll save the world … for the right price.”

We also got a new glimpse at the cast for the series, including John Cho (Star Trek) as the smooth-talking Spike Spiegel; Daniella Pineda (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) as the cunning Faye Valentine; and Mustafa Shakir (Marvel’s Luke Cage) as bounty hunter and bonsai tree enthusiast Jet Black.
