The first look photographs for the upcoming “Cowboy Bebop” adaption starring John Cho, which will air on Netflix on November 19, have been revealed.
Based on the acclaimed late-90s anime series of the same name, this live-action remake follows a group of bounty hunters led by Spike Spiegel (Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) as they hunt down criminals throughout the solar system while each attempting to escape their own dark pasts.
The revival of “Cowboy Bebop” was first revealed in 2017 and Netflix picked it up in 2018. Despite the fact that the entire television series consisted of only 26 episodes, the original anime, which launched in 1998, proved to be a significant commercial and critical success. It spawned two manga series and an anime feature, the latter of which debuted in the United States in 2003.
André Nemec is the showrunner, and he executive produces alongside Jeff Pinkner, Josh Appelbaum, and Scott Rosenberg on behalf of Midnight Studios. Tim Coddington, Tetsu Fujimura, Michael Katleman, Matthew Weinberg, and Christopher Yost are among the executive producers, as are Tomorrow Studios’ Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements, and Sunrise Inc.’s Makoto Asanuma, Shin Sasaki, and Masayuki Ozaki. Shinichir Watanabe, the original anime’s director, is a consultant on the series, and Yoko Kanno, the original composer, returns for the live-action version.
