Netflix's 'Cowboy Bebop' trailer hints at Spike Spiegel's mysterious past

Tech 27-10-2021 Mashable 38

The official trailer for the live action Cowboy Bebop has finally arrived, giving us a good look at Netflix's adaptation of the classic 1998 anime. Complimented by the anime's iconic opening track "Tank!," the new trailer also hints at Spike Spiegel's (John Cho) mysterious past.

The 10 episode neo-noir sci-fi Western series follows bounty hunters Spiegel, Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) as they track down criminals through space. Being a cosmic bounty hunter isn't all fun and games, though. In an exclusive livestream event, Netflix also revealed a short, comedic clip of Spiegel and Black's first encounter with canine crewmate Ein — which also revealed a somewhat dystopic detail about Cowboy Bebop's universe.

"Why steal dogs?" says Spiegel. "Those things are harder to move on the black market than diamonds."

"I can't remember the last time I saw a real dog," says Black.

Cowboy Bebop gets everybody and the stuff together on Netflix Nov. 19.
