Netflix announced that it would develop a real-time adaptation of Cowboy Bebop in 10 episodes.
Originally published in Japan in 1998, Cowboy Bebop is "Spike Spiegel's jazz-inspired story, Jet Black, Faye Valentine and Radical Ed: a group of bounty hunters fleeing the past the most dangerous criminals of the solar system They will even save the world … for the right price. "
Netflix will produce the new series with Tomorrow Studios and the director of the original cartoon, Shinichiro Watanabe, will be a consultant for the project.
Christopher Yost, who wrote Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok, will write the first episode and will be executive producer.
Cowboy Bebop has made our list of seven essential cartoons that every fan should watch and that counts a lot for many people in the world, including our own Jacki Jing.
Last year, there had been reports on this live TV series and Netflix finally confirmed it.
The original Cowboy Bebop series consisted of 26 episodes, and when she made her Cartoon Cartoon debut in 2001, she became the first anime to appear on Adult Swim.
This new version of Cowboy Bebop will join Netflix's animated film catalog, which includes Neon Genesis Evangelion, new series based on Pacific Rim and Altered Carbon, and much more.
