The next live-action anime adaptation is just around the corner. Cowboy Bebop will receive a version on Netflix, whose first season will premiere in full next November 19th. After the first images of the series were presented, the platform took advantage of its most recent event to publicize the opening. With an elegant and somewhat extravagant style, very similar to that of the anime series, the different actors are already properly characterized.
Cowboy Bebop is an action series set in a bounty hunter world, reminiscent of Western Americans. The bandit gang composed of Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir) and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) will leave their past behind and will make its weapons available to its customers. The objective? Kill the most dangerous criminals in the solar system. Unfortunately, the past cannot be escaped, so treacherous, it will not take long to turn against them.
The series has a futuristic setting, since the plot outlines a universe in which humanity has colonized other planets. The reason that the human being left Earth is none other than the impossibility of living in his home world, since at that time it was already uninhabitable.
Who are behind the project?
The series is based on the original anime. Among those responsible for this new fiction están los productores ejecutivos André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, Josh Appelbaum and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio, Marty Adelstein y Becky Clements, de Tomorrow Studios; Makoto Asanuma, Shin Sasaki y Masayuki Ozaki, de Sunrise Inc.; Tim Coddington, Tetsu Fujimura, Michael Katleman, Matthew Weinberg y Christopher Yost.
Nemec, meanwhile, is the showrunner, while the director of the anime and the films, Shinichirō Watanabe, serves as a consultant. The one who also returns is the composer Yoko Kanno, who will be in charge of the soundtrack.
