Netflix has released the first official poster for Cowboy Bebop, a feature adaptation of the legendary anime series from the 1990s. After we got our first look through a few photos in August, now the first poster has finally arrived, and the trailer could arrive tomorrow, as the series will then be represented as part of Netflix’s fan virtual event Tudum. But on the other hand, as part of the schedule, only an exclusive view of the introductory rush hour was announced, but as hope dies last, we hope that they may have kept silent about the first teaser to be a surprise.
The series is a co-production of Netflix and Tomorrow Studios. The directors of all ten episodes are Michael Katleman (Primevil) and Alex Garcia Lopez (Daredevil). The creators of the series are André Nemec (Alias) and Jeff Pinkner (Fringe), and the screenplay is signed by Christopher Yost (Thor: Ragnarok, The Mandalorian) and Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Helix, Lost). Executive producers include André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, Josh Appelbaum and Scott Rosenberg for Midnight Radio, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements for Tomorrow Studios, Makoto Asanuma, Shin Sasaki and Masayuki Ozaki for Sunrise Inc. and Tim Coddington, Tetsu Fujimura, Michael Katleman, Matthew Weinberg and Christopher Yost.
The German is also a showrunner who recently told EW that he considers the series an “expansion of the canon”. He also added: “I promise we will never take away the original anime from the Puritans. He will always exist there. But I’m very excited about the stories we’re telling. I believe that we have done a very good job without violating the canon in any way, but we have only offered some additional insights into the world that has already been created.” On that occasion, we also received a fresh exclusive photo, which you can look for at the foot of the article.
Based on the global phenomenon of Sunrise Inc., Cowboy Bebop is a jazz story about Spike Spiegel, Jet Black, Faye Valentine and Radical Ed, a team of bounty hunters on the run from their past while chasing the most dangerous criminals of the solar system. It will even save the world… for the right price.
The lead roles in the Netflix adaptation are played by John Cho (Star Trek) as Spike Spiegel, Daniella Pineda (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) as Faye Valentine, Mustafa Shakir (The Deuce) as Jet Black, Alex Hassell (The Boys) as Vicious, Elena Satine (The Gifted) as Julia and the little sweet corgi as Ein.
Cowboy Bebop on Netflix arrives on November 19th.
