Over two decades ago, the Cowboy Bebop anime became a global phenomenon. Next month, Netflix will try to catch lightning in the bottle twice with a brand new live-action Cowboy Bebop adaption. John Cho headlines the series as Spike Spiegel, the captain of the starship Bebop. In the far future, bounty hunters are called “cowboys,” and Spike is one of the best. He also has two partners: Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir) and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda). However, the crew of the Bebop doesn’t always get along.
Netflix has debuted a new Cowboy Bebop trailer that sets up the dynamic between the three leads. It also gives viewers a glimpse at some of the challenges facing the crew, especially when they end up at each others’ throats.

Here’s the official description from Netflix:
“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.”
Cowboy Bebop hits Netflix on November 19. You can also check out the new poster below.
