And yes, it’s got Ein in it. That’s all I cared about too… It debuts on Netflix November 16.
Cowboy Bebop’s bounty hunters are on the run again in this live-action series. Spike Spiegel is played by John Cho (Star Trek, Harold and Kumar), Jet Black is a breakout role for Mustafa Shakir (Bushmaster in Luke Cage), and Faye Valentine gets the Daniella Pineda (Jurassic World) treatment. They’re always just one step ahead, but always seem to find trouble if it doesn’t find them first in their pursuit of the bounty on the heads of space-hopping fugitives. I think it’s time we blow this scene. Get everybody and the stuff together. OK, three, two, one… Let’s jam!
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 Shinichir? Watanabe is a consultant on the series, and original composer Yoko Kanno returns for the live-action adaptation. The series also stars Alex Hassell and Elena Satine. A tie-in book series is expected from Titan Books.
The original 26 episode 1998 anime series is available to watch in both subbed and dubbed versions on Hulu. The 2001 movie is not currently available on streaming or download, but is still available on DVD and Blu Ray.
Watch the live-action Cowboy Bebop series only on Netflix, from November 19, 2021
