This opening comes not long after Netflix put out its new poster for Cowboy Bebop. The image went live yesterday in anticipation of Netflix’s Tadum event, and it certainly drummed up buzz. It even gave fans a faraway glance at Spike’s infamous ship in the sky, and this opening gives its own peeks into the universe of Cowboy Bebop.
If you like what you see here, this opening isn’t even the show’s first clip. Netflix is keeping a full-blown trailer close to the chest right now, but it will not be long before that footage goes live. The show is slated to hit Netflix in mid-November with John Cho leading the project as Spike Spiegel.

“Cowboy Bebop is an action-packed space Western about three bounty hunters, aka “cowboys,” all trying to outrun the past. As different as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) form a scrappy, snarky crew ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals – for the right price. But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them.
