I think it’s time to blow this scene.
Get everybody and their stuff together.
Okay, three, two, one let’s jam.

Get that theme song going in your heads Space Cowboys/ Girls because it looks like the immensely popular anime series Cowboy Bebop will be returning 18 years after it aired its last episode. Led by Thor screenwriter and frequent comic scribe Chris Yost, the fan-favorite series will be a live action adaptation. It is unclear if the upcoming series will be a straight adaptation the original’s 26 episode run (and one feature film set in the middle of that arc) or if it will expand on it but whatever they decide, they will be met with high expectations as the series has garnered a massive fan base in its native Japan and beyond.

Set in 2071, Cowboy Bebop follows the exploits of Bounty Hunter Spike Spiegel and his ragtag crew consisting of ex-police officer Jet Black, amnesiac con artist Faye Valentine, eccentric but brilliant child genius Edward Wong and Spike’s faithful Welsh Corgi Ein. Together they chase criminals across the galaxy while uncovering their own dark histories.

The first anime to air on Cartoon Network’s popular Adult Swim block, the series is known for its mixture of genres ranging from film noir, jazz, black comedy, and westerns while touching on complex themes such as existentialism, ennui, and loneliness. Combining these genres series creator Shinichirō Watanabe created a show that has gone on to be recognized as one of the greatest anime series of all time.

Currently, there are no details on who’s starring or what network the series will air on but one thing is certain: We will indeed see you later Space Cowboy.
