A 10-episode live-action “Cowboy Bebop” series from writer and executive producer Christopher Yost (Thor: The Dark World, Thor: Ragnarok) is on the way to Netflix, with John Cho (Searching) set to lead the cast as Spike Spiegel. The streaming service announced this morning that “Cowboy Bebop” will be premiering on November 19, 2021!

Additionally, we’ve been provided with some first-look images. Find them below!

Based on the worldwide phenomenon from Sunrise Inc., Cowboy Bebop is the jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of a rag-tag crew of bounty hunters on the run from their pasts, as they hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals.

They’ll even save the world…for the right price.

Cowboy Bebop is an action-packed space Western about three bounty hunters, aka “cowboys,” all trying to outrun the past. As different as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) 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.”

The series also stars Alex Hassell and Elena Satine.

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 for the live-action adaptation.”

See John Cho as Spike in ‘Cowboy Bebop.’ The first images from Netflix’s live-action series have fans losing their minds.

New York Daily News 23 August, 2021 - 03:19pm

The space western based on Shinichirō Watanabe’s cult 1998 anime series follows three bounty hunters — Spike Spiegel (played by John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir) and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) — who hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals. “But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them,” notes the Netflix show synopsis. 

Fans got their first looks at leader Spike, co-pilot Jet and fellow bounty hunter Fay online on Monday, and each of Netflix’s tweets quickly racked up thousands of likes and retweets, leading “Cowboy Bepop” and actor Cho to trend throughout the day. Noticeably absent from the first few images, however, was any sign of the hacker character Edward, a.k.a. “Radical Ed.”

Many were jazzed about how the three main characters look, so far. 

Some were not convinced that an animated classic really needed to be adapted as a live-action series, however. 

But if there’s one thing almost everyone could agree on, it’s that the pupper playing Ein — a supersmart Pembroke Welsh Corgi who’s also part of Cowboy Bepop’s team — looks pretty perfect. 

“Cowboy Bebop” is often considered a gateway series for getting people into anime. There are 26 episodes of the original show that aired in Japan between 1998 and 1999, and “Cowboy Bebop” was also published in two manga series at about the same time. Here’s a look at the original anime’s opening theme.

The series is slated to debut worldwide on Netflix on Nov. 19. 

The decision to give out extra doses of Moderna and Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccines pits federal health officials who say the shots may not protect people from severe disease in the future against the public-health experts who disagree with their logic.
