Cowboy Bebop, based on the original animated show, is coming soon to Netflix, and the series announced the start of production with a new video. In it, we see everything from the perspective of Ein the dog, one of the characters from the series.
The cast of the series also includes John Cho (Spike Spiegel), Mustafa Shakir (Jet Black), Daniella Pineda (Faye Valentine), Alex Hassell (Vicious), and Elena Satine (Julia). Netflix also previously confirmed that Radical Ed is in, but the character hasn’t been cast yet.
Based on the worldwide phenomenon from Sunrise Inc., Cowboy Bebop is the jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of a rag-tag crew of bounty hunters on the run from their pasts, as they hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals. They’ll even save the world… for the right price.
Alex Garcia Lopez (The Witcher, Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s The Punisher, Utopia) will direct the first two episodes. The 10-episode series is a co-production of Netflix and Tomorrow Studios. Netflix will handle physical production. Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio are showrunners and executive producers. Also executive producing are Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements of Tomorrow Studios, Yasuo Miyakawa, Masayuki Ozaki, and Shin Sasaki of Sunrise Inc, Tetsu Fujimura and Matthew Weinberg. Christopher Yost will write the first episode and also executive produces.
