We are finally getting the live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop later this year and it looks like the Netflix series will remain faithful to the Hajime Yatate anime. The official synopsis for the John Cho show has been revealed.
Netflix has just dropped photos from Cowboy Bebop live-action and it teases our first look at Cho as Spike Spiegel, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black, and Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine. We also got an awesome glimpse at the adorable corgi who will portray Ein in the upcoming Netflix adaptation.
In addition to the awesome images that were released, Netflix has shared the official synopsis for Cowboy Bebop. Check it out below.
"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."
This sounds pretty much what the anime is all about and is a great confirmation that Netflix did not play around too much with the content's original storyline. Needless to say, we can't wait to see the Bebop crew's adventures in live-action.
The Cowboy Beboplive-action series will also star Alex Hassell as Vicious and Elena Satine as Julia. The show will consist of 10 episodes which are all expected to premiere on Netflix on November 19, 2021.
