There’s a Cowboy Bebop live-action TV show in the works…

June 8th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Cowboy Bebop, the 1998 Japanese animated series, is set for a live-action TV remake…

The series will be created by Tomorrow Studios, a partnership between ITV Studios and Marty Adelstein.

The series will also be safely int he hands of the people who created the original animation as it will be executive produced by Sunrise Inc. — the studio responsible for the original animated iteration.

We did have the Cowboy Bebop movie in 2001 which took place during the original animated series, however we expect this new series to be unrelated to the original series or movie.

“Cowboy Bebop,” which takes place in 2071 in the original version, follows Spike Spiegel and his gang of bounty hunters, also known as cowboys, as they cavort around the galaxy attempting to capture bad guys and survive some of the most intense dangers the galaxy has to offer. The anime series has been successful in Western markets, and is credited with introducing a new wave of Western viewers to anime. It’s also widely cited as one of the best anime series of all time.


So, are you excited? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
