Cowboy Bebop, the new live action series that adapts the adventures of Spike Spiegel, Jet Black and Faye Valentine from the original anime, has been abruptly canceled by Netflix after less than a month since the premiere of its first and only season. This is how the medium published The Hollywood Reporter, claiming that from the platform they have not received positively audience figures well below expectations, even more so if we take into account the high production costs of the series.
Cowboy Bebop runs out of season 2 on Netflix
And it is that the audience has not received Cowboy Bebop as expected, since it was an adaptation live action that had aroused some interest. So much so, that Cowboy Bebop added only 21 million hours reproduced during its first weekend, figures far removed from what was expected on Netflix. The following week he added other 36 million hours reproduced, which is why Netflix has decided to cut their losses when seeing that the general public has not responded as planned.
Adding the audience figures for Cowboy Bebop, the series is situated in a middle step down among the great catalog of productions of the streaming platform, something that for Netflix is not sustainable given the big budget that handles a series like the one at hand. All in all, Cowboy Bebop run out of a season 2 that surely fans of the franchise would have welcomed with open arms.
Let’s remember that a few months ago something similar happened with another Netflix series that had raised some expectations both for the superhero theme and for the high levels of production; Unfortunately, Jupiter’s Legacy It also failed to convince the large audiences, remaining well below the expected number of reproductions, being canceled after a single season.
