The best upcoming TV shows and movies on Netflix
Saddle up, space cowboys, because Spike Spiegel and crew will return in a brand new, live action Cowboy Bebop series from Netflix! We don’t know much about it as yet, though it has been confirmed that series creator Shinichiro Watanabe will be involved as a consultant on the show, while John Cho (Star Trek) will play Spike, Mustafa Shakir (Luke Cage) will play Jet Black and Daniella Pineda (The Vampire Diaries) will play Faye Valentine. The original show followed a band of misfit bounty hunters, each haunted by their own past, as they travelled the galaxy trying to keep food in their bellies. Packed with incredibly action, amazing style and lovable characters, Cowboy Bebop is ripe for further adventures – provided Netflix can stick the landing. Christopher L. Yost (Thor: Ragnarok) will write the new series, while Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg will act as showrunners. While Netflix recently released a behind-the-scenes teaser (which you can watch below) to announce the show’s filming, the live-action adaptation has been put on hiatus for 7-9 months to allow star Cho to recover following a serious and unfortunate on-set injury. We hope he gets well soon!
