Production stills have been officially shared by Netflix to promote the upcoming Cowboy Bebop live-action adaptation.

Cowboy Bebop is a Japanese sci-fi anime with elements of space westerns (i.e. cowboys), cyberpunk, and a bit of hi-tech noir elements.

Many fans from the U.S. attribute Cowboy Bebop as being their gateway anime during its run on the Cartoon Network.

In 2017, an announcement was made by Tomorrow Studios that they would be developing a live-action television series based on Cowboy Bebop.

Later in 2019, the cast for Cowboy Bebop was announced, with John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, Alex Hassell, and Daniela Pineda confirmed for the key roles.

This production was in partnership with the original developers, Sunrise Inc. and would be released on Netflix.

The show was filmed in New Zealand and was aiming for a 2020 release. However, lead star John Cho suffered a knee injury in late 2019.

On August 22, 2021, new official stills were released by Netflix, as well as confirming it would be running  for 10 episodes.

Cowboy Bebop launches on Netflix on November 19, 2021.
