First Look: Stills from Cowboy Bebop - Netflix Live Action series - Premiers Nov. 19th
Netflix reveal still from their live action Cowboy Bebop series that will premier on the streaming service November 19th, 2021. The photos show John Cho in the role of Spike Spiegel, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black and Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine. I will look to see who the actor is playing Ein the Corgi, but whoever they are its great casting. I also don't see any mention of the resident hacker Ed in the materials for the show. Overall as far as the look, attitude and settings this all feels right to me. I'm a long time fan of the original anime series, and I'm actually in the middle of watching it again.
For those unfamiliar with the material, Cowboy Bebop follows the group of bounty hunters, often referred to as "Cowboys" all with vastly different backgrounds. The anime had a space western kind of feel to it, but so many other genres blended into the series as the seasons went on that its hard to fit it into a specific box. This difficulty to label the series is one of the reasons I enjoyed it. I've read some of the manga that inspired the series, its on my list to read through in its entirety as some point.
