Netflix has shared the first look of the cast of live-action Cowboy Bebop, premiering 19 November.
The show is based on the renowned 1998 Japanese anime of the same name. The anime series was set in 2071 and follows the lives of a crew of bounty hunters of a spaceship named "Bebop". The crew leaps on a mission to hunt criminals in the solar system while each struggling to erase the memory of their dark past.
