John Cho sustained an injury on the set of his new Netflix show. Cowboy Bebop. Production for the show has been delayed for several months as Cho recuperates from the injury.
According to Deadline, Cho was filming the last take of a scene when a freak accident caused a knee injury. He was flown to Los Angeles from New Zealand, where they were shooting.
“Our thoughts are with John, and he has our complete support as he recuperates from this injury,” a Netflix spokesperson told Deadline.
“Cowboy Bebop” is a 10-episode series and is based on a Japanese animated series.
Variety reports the accident happened during rehearsal during a sequence not considered a large-scale stunt.
Cho posted on Twitter after his injury to reassure his fans that the injury is not stopping him.
