Netflix’s ‘Cowboy Bebop’ Live-Action Series Sets Premiere Date; John Cho As Spike Spiegel Unveiled In First Look Images

Cowboy Bebop, after the long and winding road of production, has finally touched down on Netflix. The streamer unveiled the premiere date and first-look images for its live-action series, starring John Cho.

Based on Shinichirō Watanabe’s cult anime series, Cowboy Bebop follows a group of misfit bounty hunters, led by Spike Spiegel (Cho) as they search for the galaxy’s most valuable criminals. Mustafa Shakir also stars as Spike’s trusted co-pilot Jet Black and Daniella Pineda as the highly-skilled bounty hunter Faye Valentine.

The first look images, which can be viewed below, expand on the quick glimpse the Cowboy Bebop stars provided earlier in the summer during Netflix’s Geeked Week event. The pics see Cho donning Spike Spiegel’s signature purple suit, Shakir’s prosthetics and teasing Faye’s slick bob on Pineda.

The highly-anticipated live action adaptation has experienced delays over the course of production due to Cho’s on-set injury, which put the show out for seven to nine months. Production on Cowboy Bebop wrapped in March. Original anime series director Shinichirō Watanabe is a consultant on the series, and original composer Yoko Kanno returns to score the live-action adaptation.

The series will debut on Netflix Friday, November 19.
