Netflix, you’re doing a bang-up job. Now let’s hope the series lives up to this trailer.

Netflix unveiled this official trailer for their live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop at a virtual event today. Said trailer not only looked amazing and actually faithful to the original anime, but it also revealed when we’ll actually get to see it. Apparently, this will debut on Netflix on November 19, 2021. The series is, of course, a Netflix exclusive. If you want to watch it, then you’ll have to cough up some cash for a Netflix subscription.

Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop: Details

Now that’s a perfect sunset to accompany this scene.

I would be very surprised if you have never heard of the original Cowboy Bebop anime Netflix are adapting this live-action series from. But just in case you haven’t: the story is about a group of bounty hunters (including a very intelligent dog and his human hacker pet) who keep getting bad luck, gunfights, space fights, and sometimes all of the above. All while trying to escape their respective pasts in this space western.


The official synopsis from Netflix goes into more detail about this live-action adaptation by André Nemec. Check it out below:

“COWBOY BEBOP is an action-packed space Western about three bounty hunters, aka “cowboys,” all trying to outrun the past. As different as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) form a scrappy, snarky crew ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals — for the right price. But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them.”
