COWBOY BEBOP: MAKING THE NETFLIX SERIES captures the epic journey behind the scenes of Netflix's live-action Cowboy Bebop adaptation! Featuring an exclusive foreword by showrunner André Nemec, this official companion is packed full of beautiful concept art and revealing behind-the-scenes photography, as the cast and crew tell the story of how one of the most influential anime series of all time was translated over to live action in this much-anticipated series produced by Netflix and Tomorrow Studios (Snowpiercer).

Cowboy Bebop was a 1998 Japanese science fiction neo-noir anime TV series set in the year 2071, following the lives of a traveling bounty hunting crew in their spaceship called the Bebop. Although it incorporated a wide variety of genres throughout its run, Cowboy Bebop draws most heavily from science fiction, westerns and noir films. The anime was adapted into two manga series which were serialized in Kadokawa Shoten's Asuka Fantasy DX. A film was later released worldwide. And now Netflix is adapting the series into a live-action series written by Christopher Yost, and stars John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, Daniella Pineda, Alex Hassell, and Elena Satine. The series consists of 10 episodes.
