Cowboy Bebop finally has a trailer. After months of news, photos, and theme songs, Netflix has released the first teaser for its live-action Cowboy Bebop series, sort of. The trailer is called “The Lost Session” and it shows off John Cho as Spike Spiegal, Danielle Pineda as Faye Valentine, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black, as they take on a bounty that won’t be part of the actual Netflix show.
The trailer, which is directed by Greg Jardin, starts off aboard the Bebop with Jet, Faye, and Spike getting the call for a new bounty. The two chase down a target, or more specifically chase down the wrong target a couple of times, and get into plenty of random fights. The whole thing is set to the show’s iconic music and plays with split screen in a few fun ways before the gang inevitably messes up the bounty and loses out on the cash. While it’s nice to get a short preview of what the show might look like, this still isn’t an official look at any of the footage that will premiere in the first season. For that we’ll have to wait for a trailer that’s coming next week.
One thing that remains unclear about the Netflix show after the trailer is just how much of the series it will cover. While it’s likely to have 10 episodes, like most Netflix series, that isn’t enough to cover all the story in the entire 26-episode anime. It’s possible Netflix either condenses the story a bit, or that we’ll have to wait until future seasons to see the conclusion of the story.
Cowboy Bebop will be released on Netflix on Nov. 19.
