Cowboy Bebop trailer: Grab some bounty and strap in for a jazzy good time

Netflix has released a new Cowboy Bebop trailer for our viewing pleasure and it’s a doozy. The live-action adaptation of the classic anime series has been a long time coming but the big day is nearly here. Starring John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, and Danielle Pineda, Cowboy Bebop is a rockin’ space Western that follows three bounty hunters as they hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals.

Confession time, I’ve never seen the original series – but I am a fan of the iconic theme tune by Yoko Kanno – so I’m probably not the best person to say whether or not Netflix’s take on Cowboy Bebop hits the mark, but the trailer looks like a blast to me. Original anime series director Shinichirō Watanabe is a consultant on the new Cowboy Bebop show, and original composer Yoko Kanno has returned as well. The release of this latest Cowboy Bebop trailer comes a week after Netflix dropped a highly creative teaser that found Spike Spiegel (Cho), Jet Black (Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Pineda) using the trailer to their advantage by jumping from scene to scene and even using the split-screen bar as a weapon. I can only hope that the actual series is half as much fun, and yes, I’ll be checking out the original series as soon as I can.

The official synopsis for Cowboy Bebop:

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.

Cowboy Bebop will debut on Netflix on November 19, 2021.
