Japanese Anime series ‘Cowboy Bebop’ is being adapted into a live action TV series

It’s finally happening, after almost 20 years since Cowboy Bebop first aired in 1998 to commercial and critical acclaim, Cowboy Bebop is being adapted into a live action television series by Tomorrow Studios, a partnership between ITV Studios and Marty Adelstein.

The live action version will be executive produced by Sunset Inc. — the studio responsible for the original animated iteration — as well as Midnight Radio, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, and Matthew Weinberg. Midnight Radio consists of Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg. Chris Yost will write the adaptation.

Cowboy Bebop takes place in 2071 in the original anime version, it follows Spike Spiegel and his gang of bounty hunters, also known as cowboys as they travel the galaxy in their spaceship Bebop chasing criminals to bring them in alive for a reward. If the plot sounds familiar then you may have guessed that the original anime series inspired TV series such as Firefly and Killjoys. With the original studio involved in this live adaptation, I sincerely hope it will be a great and faithful adaptation and that it will not butcher the much beloved original anime series.
