Netflix Will Make A Live-Action Cowboy Bebop Series

Just when you thought Netflix was done with its anime offerings, along comes this bombshell of a newspiece. Cowboy Bebop is getting a live-action series on Netflix.

Here’s what else we know about this:

  • Series creator Shinichiro Watanabe will be brought into the fold for consultation.
  • The first episode will be written by Chris Yost, who wrote Thor: Ragnarok.
  • According to Variety, the show has a 10-episode order to start and has been in the works since last year.
  • Other names on the project include Andre Nemec and Josh Appelbaum (Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and Sunrise Inc. Yep, the original creators are on board.

Here’s hoping the style of the anime series and jazz/blues feel is preserved. What can live-action do to top the late 90s show in terms of adaptation & recreation? We’ll find out in the future, space cowboy.

In the meantime, I’ll just put GIFs of the show in action because I personally have no clue on how to feel towards this Netflix domination news.
