During 2018, the streaming service continued to expand its content over the week. This trend will not change in 2019, as Netflix will host or even produce a fiction from known licenses. So, after the Neon Genesis Evangelion, this is the cowboy Bebop's order on land.
Indeed, the Cowboy Bebop will return through the remake in the form of a live series. There will be a total of 10 episodes in which the Bounty Hunter crew will be on the Bebop boat. This Japanese series has become cult over the years, and it seems that the ability to see real actors, not animated characters, is worrying. Especially they criticized Death Note fans, Fullmetal Alchemist or Ghost and Shell, who received the same treatment.
A team of Hollywood and Japanese scriptwriters already on the bridge
The series will be jointly written by Andre Nemec and Josh Appelbaum, who noticed their work on the Impossible Mission: Ghost Protocol. They will not be alone as scriptwriters Jeff Pinkner (Fringe) and Scott Rosenberg (Venom) will also participate in the project. Japanese team Yasuo Miyakawa, Masayuki Ozaki and Shin Sasaki from the animation studio Sunrise will also give a hand.
For now, Netflix has not announced a release date for this remake live, Cowboy Bebop.
