Netflix has released the first look at Cowboy Bebop, a feature adaptation of the legendary anime series from the 1990s. In addition to the first photos, which look very promising, the arrival date of the series has been revealed. We won’t wait much longer because Cowboy Bebop arrives on Netflix as early as November 19th.
The series is a co-production of Netflix and Tomorrow Studios. The directors of all ten episodes are Michael Katleman (Primevil) and Alex Garcia Lopez (Daredevil). The creators of the series are André Nemec (Alias) and Jeff Pinkner (Fringe), and the screenplay is signed by Christopher Yost (Thor: Ragnarok, The Mandalorian) and Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Helix, Lost). The good thing is also that Shinichiro Watanabe, the director of the original, who had the role of advisor, was also involved in the project.
Based on the global phenomenon of Sunrise Inc., Cowboy Bebop is a jazz story about Spike Spiegel, Jet Black, Faye Valentine and Radical Ed, a team of bounty hunters on the run from their past while chasing the most dangerous criminals of the solar system. It will even save the world… for the right price. Cowboy Bebop has become a cult series even though it consists of only 26 episodes. He inspired two manga series, but also one anime film – Cowboy Bebop: The Movie.
The lead roles in the Netflix adaptation are played by John Cho (Star Trek) as Spike Spiegel, Daniella Pineda (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) as Faye Valentine, Mustafa Shakir (The Deuce) as Jet Black, Alex Hassell (The Boys) as Vicious, Elena Satine (The Gifted) as Julia and the little sweet corgi as Ein.
