Netflix has dropped some photos of its upcoming live-action adaptation of the space western anime classic Cowboy Bebop via the film's official Twitter account.

In the series of recent tweets (included below) and photos we are introduced to Spike, Jet Black, Faye Valentine. In the second tweet of what's probably a safe bet to assume is the first of several character introductions to come in the future, we get to see and meet the humble bounty hunter Spike Spiegel.

According to the tweets, the live-action Cowboy Bebop adaptation will premiere on Netflix November 19, 2021.

It has been reported that each episode of the live-action adaptation will be an hour long and a second season is already in the works. It's obvious that showrunners André Nemec and Jeff Pinkner plan on spending some more time and expanding the Cowboy Bebop live-action universe.

Yoko Kanno, the composer for the original Cowboy Bebop anime, is confirmed to be returning with original music for the live-action adaptation. Fans of the anime will also be excited to learn that Cowboy Bebop's creator, Shinichiro Watanabe, is serving as a consultant for the live-action series.

The Cowboy Bebop live-action cast includes John Cho (Sulu/Star Trek) as Spike Spiegel, Mustafa Shakir (Bushmaster/Luke Cage) as Jet Black, Daniella Pineda (Zia Rodriguez/Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) as Faye Valentine, Alex Hassell (Translucent/The Boys) as Vicious, and Elena Satine (Louise Ellis/Revenge) as Julia.
