Netflix also revealed new key art and stills for the series.
The live-action series will premiere on November 19. The series will have 10 episodes.
Netflix describes its Cowboy Bebop series:
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.
The cast also includes:
The Japanese dub will include returning voice actors from the original anime’s cast, such as Kōichi Yamadera as Spike Spiegel and Megumi Hayashibara as Faye Valentine. Taiten Kusunoki will replace the late Unshō Ishizuka as the voice of Jet Black.
Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop anime’s composer) is composing the live-action series. The live-action opening credits brings back Kanno’s “Tank!” song from the original anime’s version.
The series is a co-production between Netflix and Tomorrow Studios, with Netflix handling physical production. Tomorrow Studios is a partnership between producer Marty Adelstein (Prison Break, Teen Wolf, producer for the live-action One Piece project) and ITV Studios. Shinichiro Watanabe, the original anime’s director, is serving as consultant for the project. Andre Nemec, Josh Appelbaum, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio are credited as showrunners and executive producers.
Tomorrow Studios‘ Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements; Yasuo Miyakawa, Masayuki Ozaki, and Shin Sasaki of Sunrise (the studio that animated the original series); and Tetsu Fujimura and Matthew Weinberg are also credited as executive producers. Chris Yost (Thor: The Dark World, Thor: Ragnarok) is writing the series, and is credited as executive producer.
Writer and executive producer Jeff Pinkner teased in April 2020 that the show’s staff is planning a second season.
The original anime series follows the motley crew of the spaceship Bebop as it travels throughout the solar system in search of the next job. The anime inspired Cowboy Bebop: The Movie in 2001. Funimation released the series on Blu-ray and DVD in North America in 2014, and screened the film in the United States in 2018, the 20th anniversary of the original series. Netflix began streaming the original anime worldwide outside Japan starting on October 21.
