Netflix Has Unveiled An Official Trailer For Cowboy Bebop, The Live-Action Adaptation Of The Popular Anime Series Of The Same Name

Described by the streaming platform as an action-packed space Western, the show stars John Cho (Star Trek), Mustafa Shakir (Luke Cage) and Daniella Pineda (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), as “different but deadly” bounty hunters Spike Spiegel, Jet Black and Faye Valentine.

Together, the trio “form a scrappy, snarky crew ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals for the right price”, the outing’s official synopsis explains. “But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them.”

“If the cops or the bounty hunters don’t get you, the Syndicate will,” Spike warns in the explosive teaser. “There’s no happy ending here.”

“Spoken like a man who’s never been in love,” he’s told – to which Spike says: “I was, but I was dreaming.”

Developed by André Nemec, and written by Christopher Yost, the 10-parter also features Revenge’s Elena Satine as Julia, an unpredictable femme fatale who has a complicated romantic history with Spike, and The Boys’ Alex Hassell as Vicious, Spike’s former partner who also has an eye for Julia.

“Are you good guys, or bad guys?”Spike is asked towards the end of the promo.

“Depends on who you ask,” he says with a grin.

Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), Mason Alexander Park (The Sandman), Josh Randall (Scrubs), Jan Uddin (EastEnders) and two very good Corgis called Charlie and Harry are among those who round out the supporting cast.

Original anime series director Shinichirō Watanabe was a consultant on the series, while original composer Yoko Kanno has returned, too.

Cowboy Bebop releases on Netflix on Friday, November 19.
