Cowboy Bebop: The live-action series Cowboy Bebop debuted on November 19th on Netflix and doesn’t seem to have had the success expected by streaming. According to information from The Hollywood Reporter, the service decided to cancel the series less than a month after its launch.
Since it debuted, the series has garnered more than 74 million airing hours, but has received moderate reviews for the way it adapted the original Shinichiro Watanabe anime, with just 46% approval ratings on Rotten Tomatoes. According to THR, the show’s ratings plummeted in the second week.
The plot of Cowboy Bebop
