There's no denying that Netflix's live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop was one of the most anticipated projects this year but the fan enthusiasm quickly wore off as soon as the show made its debut. While the series isn't exactly a faithful adaptation, to its credit, it still tried its best to recreate the anime's magic but the underwhelming reception it got from the fandom was enough reason for the streaming giant to sentence its demise.

Now, in a shocking turn of events, Netflix has dropped any plans of extending Cowboy Bebop's stay in their library and after just one season, the show has officially been canceled. It comes as a huge shocker considering it's one of the most-hyped shows on Netflix. The fans, on the other hand, have mixed feelings about it getting canned too early.

The fans' biggest complaint about the series is that it didn't get anything from the source material and instead came up with a story of its own. I mean, that's actually admirable but it's also safe to say that was one of the reasons why it failed to click. It's honestly a shame because it looked extremely promising. By no means was the show awful, it certainly had a lot of room for improvement and I thought for sure Netflix was willing to give it another chance. That's not the case, apparently. I guess it was doomed to fail from the start.

Cowboy Bebop streams exclusively on Netflix.
