Spike Spiegel, Faye Valentine and Jet Black have finally entered Netflix’s orbit with the official trailer for the streamer’s Cowboy Bebop series.
The clip, unveiled during a Netflix livestream event on Tuesday, sees John Cho’s Spike Spiegel reconnect with an old acquaintance. Similar to the original series, Spike tells his friend Ana (Tamara Tunie) about the deadly events of the past and his new lease on life.
“They tried to kill me Ana,” he says. “If you need to find me, I go by Spike Spiegel these days.”
The SEATBELTS’ Tank! then packs a punch to the clip, helping to set the scene for Spike and Jet Black’s (Mustafa Shakir’s) exploits across the solar system aboard the Bebop.
“In this solar system, if the cops or the bounty hunters don’t get you, the syndicate will,” Spike says, teasing the series’ big bad and his past with the crime organization.
Of course, Daniella Pineda’s Faye Valentine enters the scene, looking for her own cut in the bounty business. The stylized trailer gives viewers a glimpse at reimagined foes –the Teddy Bomber, smuggler Katerina Solensan and experiment-gone-wrong Pierrot le Fou.
“What the actual f**k,” Spike whispers to Jet.
With shots of Spike’s Swordfish, new planets, stylish combat scenes and snarky one-liners, Netflix has fully immersed itself into the beloved world of Cowboy Bebop.
Based on Shinichirō Watanabe’s cult anime series, Cowboy Bebop follows a group of misfit bounty hunters, led by Cho’s Spike Spiegel as they search for the galaxy’s most valuable criminals. Shakir also stars as Spike’s trusted co-pilot Jet Black and Pineda as the highly-skilled bounty hunter Faye Valentine. The ragtag group of bounty hunters go from target to target, while trying to outrun their past.
The series also features Alex Hassell, Geoff Stults, Mason Alexander Park, Rachel House, Ann Truong and Hoa Xuande.
The series is executive produced by André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, Josh Appelbaum and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements of Tomorrow Studios, Makoto Asanuma, Shin Sasaki and Masayuki Ozaki of Sunrise Inc., Tim Coddington, Tetsu Fujimura, Michael Katleman, Matthew Weinberg, and Christopher Yost. Nemec serves as showrunner.
Watch the trailer above. Cowboy Bebop is set to debut on Netflix Friday, November 19. Until then, see you space cowboy.
