First look at Cowboy Bebop released
Here is a brief description of the upcoming Netflix series:
Cowboy Bebop is an action-packed space Western about three bounty hunters, a.k.a. “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.
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 for the live-action adaptation. The series also stars Alex Hassell and Elena Satine.
Check out the official images of the show down below. Cowboy Bebop is set to premiere on Netflix this coming 19 November.
Pokdepinion: Not gonna lie this looks very promising. The look and feel of the characters based on the pictures look like they jumped straight from the animated world to the live-action one. Can’t wait to watch it when it finally releases.
