We are so very pleased to share this official first look at Netflix’s upcoming live-action adaptation of “Cowboy Bebop!” This is definitely one of those projects we’ve been waiting (rather impatiently) for, and we’ve gotta say, kinda worth it?
Starring John Cho as Spike Spiegel, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black, Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine, this space Western focuses on three bounty hunters, aka “cowboys,” all trying to outrun the past. The series also stars Alex Hassell and Elena Satine.
Take a look:
As different as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel, Jet Black, and Faye Valentine form a scrappy, snarky crew ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals — for the right price. But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them.
Based on the beloved anime series, “Cowboy Bebop” is executive produced by André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, Josh Appelbaum and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements of Tomorrow Studios, Makoto Asanuma, Shin Sasaki and Masayuki Ozaki of Sunrise Inc., Tim Coddington, Tetsu Fujimura, Michael Katleman, Matthew Weinberg, and Christopher Yost. Nemec serves as showrunner.
Original anime series director Shinichirō Watanabe is a consultant on the series, and original composer Yoko Kanno returns as well.
“Cowboy Bebop” is set to premiere on November 19th, only on Netflix.
