Netflix Live Action Cowboy Bebop series is created by Andre Mac and Jeff Pinkner from a screenplay written by Christopher Yost (Thor: Ragnarok) and Javier Grillo-Marxuach. It will star Cho as Spike Spiegel, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black, Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine, Alex Hassell as Vicious and Elena Satine as Julia.
“An action-packed space western about three bounty hunters, aka ‘cowboys, all trying to outrun the past,’ is how the official synopsis describes the series.” As different as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir) and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) are a scrappy and sarcastic team ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals – for the right price. But they can only get out of so many fights before their past finally catches up with them. “

Cowboy Bebop is a co-production between Netflix and Tomorrow Studios, with Michael Katleman and Alex Garcia Lopez directing the 10 episodes that closed its production in New Zealand last May. The live-action series will also feature original anime composer Yoko Kanno, who returns to create the soundtrack.
The original anime only lasted 26 episodes and one special in the late 1990s and went on to have a feature film, Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, released in 2001 and set during the series instead of serving as a sequel.
