The first teaser for Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop has been released and it’s titled “The Lost Session”.

The teaser is a standalone adventure of specially created footage that won’t appear in the series. It was directed by Greg Jardin and it features bounty hunters Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) going on an adventure for new bounty and battling foes.

Throughout the teaser, it shifts through colorful lenses and moving panels to differentiate between the scenes and there’s upbeat music playing until Valentine cuts off the final shootout and says, “Hey nut buckets, there’s no payout if you shoot him in the face.” The trailer concludes with Spiegel and Black arguing about who lost the payout and then the scene pans out, showing their spaceship.

The series is based on the anime series of the same name and it also stars Alex Hassell and Elena Satine. It is executive produced by André Name, Jeff Pinkner, Josh Applebaum, Scott Rosenberg, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, Makoto Asanuma, Shin Sasaki, Masayuki Osaki, Tim Coddington, Tetsu Fujimura, Michael Katleman, Matthew Weinberg, and Christopher Yost.

Shinichirō Watanabe, the original anime series director, is a consultant, and original composer Yoko Kanno scores the live-action adaptation.

Cowboy Bebop will premiere on November 19 on Netflix. Watch the teaser below.
