Cowboy Bebop is a co-production between Netflix and Tomorrow Studios, with Michael Katleman and Alex Garcia Lopez directing all 10 episodes which wrapped its production in New Zealand last May. The live-action series will also include original anime composer Yoko Kanno, who is returning to create the soundtrack.
The anime ran for just 26 episodes and one special in the late 1990s and later had a feature film, Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, released in 2001 and set during the series instead of serving as a follow-up.
