Netflix has canceled their live-action adaption of Cowboy Bebop. The 10-episode series only ran for 1 season. Despite its high amount of views, which was 74 million, the rating dropped to 59%. The show starred John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, Daniella Pineda, Alex Hassell, and Elena Satine.
The synopsis reads:
“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, Jet Black, and Faye Valentine 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.”
Cowboy Bebop was a tv effort between Netflix and Tomorrow Studios. Michael Katleman and Alex Garcia Lopez directed every episode. The anime, which the show is based on, ran for 26 episodes. There was also one special in the late 1990s and a feature film, Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, that debuted in 2001.
