Cowboy Bebop is coming back. Deadline reports the cult favorite anime series is being developed as a live-action TV show in the U.S.
Set in the year 2071, the original Japanese series follows the adventures of “Spike Spiegel and his rag-tag crew of bounty hunters, or Cowboys, as they try to capture the galaxy’s worst criminals and survive the unexpected dangers they encounter throughout space, sometimes saving the world in the process but always leaving millions in damages.” The show ran for 26 episodes between 1998 and 1999.
The new, live-action Cowboy Bebop remake is being produced by Tomorrow Studios, Midnight Radio, and Sunrise (the anime’s original studio). Thor screenwriter Chris Yost will write the adaptation. A network has not yet been announced, but we’ll post updates as they become available.
