Netflix has announced that its highly anticipated live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop will feature new music from the hit sci-fi anime’s original composer, Yoko Kanno. The news was broadcast during Netflix’s Geeked Week virtual event, a virtual fan-facing event revealing first looks at upcoming content.
Just as thrilling is the news that Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop will come to the streaming service sometime this fall. Even though we knew the series had finished filming back in March, there was no indication of when the debut would be until just now during Geeked Week. All this information was also shared in a tweet with a 50-second video clip which simply declares: “There’s no Bebop without Yoko.” Check it out below.
