A featurette of the Netflix series “Cowboy Bebop” has confirmed that the reboot of the famous Japanese anime will be released next fall on the platform.
News from Cowboy Bebop, finally! After several postponements, due in particular to the Covid and the serious injury suffered by its main actor John Cho, the live-action reboot of the famous Japanese anime now has a broadcast date on Netflix.
A featurette unveiled this night by the streaming platform has indeed allowed to discover a first glimpse of the main performers of the show, without their costumes however. The opportunity to confirm that the series will indeed be broadcast this year on Netflix, more precisely in the course of the fall.
But that’s not all, since the video also revealed that the Japanese composer Yoko Kanno – already employed on the animated series – will sign the soundtrack of this remake in live action. Good news, which seems to confirm that this reboot will strictly respect the essence of the original work by Shinichiro Watanabe.
As a reminder, the Netflix series Cowboy Bebop stars John Cho (Star Trek) as Spike Spiegel; Daniella Pineda (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) lends her features to Faye Valentine while Mustafa Shakir (Luke Cage) plays Jet Black. Note that the villain of the series, Vicious, will be played by Alex Hassell (The Boys).
