Cowboy Bebop: Netflix releases first images from live-action adaptation

Netflix has unveiled the first images from its live-action adaptation of the Cowboy Bebop anime series and they show that the John Cho-led series is ready for action.

A total of seven photos were released by the streamer of the space Western and Netflix also announced that the show will make its debut on November 19, 2021. You can check out the first-look images below!

Cowboy Bebop is based on the popular 1998 Japanese anime TV series from writer Cain Kuga. The show was first ordered by Netflix straight-to-series for 10 episodes back in 2018 but filming hit a snag when John Cho, who plays Spike Spiegel, seriously injured his knee during a “freak accident” on set. The injury postponed production for 7-9 months.

Also starring Mustafa Shakir and Daniella Pineda, the series follows three bounty hunters, aka “cowboys”, that are all trying to outrun the past. Per the official synopsis, “They 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.”
