The original "Cowboy Bebop" anime series was released in 1998, developing a cult-like following. Netflix then released a live-action series in 2021, to mixed reception and one Primetime Emmy Nomination.

The streaming service ultimately decided not to renew it for a second season. Mustafa Shakir, who played Jet Black in the live-action, suggested it was due to steep production costs.

Netflix also has the animated version available for the futuristic show's faithful fans. Take an even deeper dive into "Cowboy Bebop" by reading quotes from the main protagonist, Spike Spiegel.
