The Cowboy Bebop is set to have a 10-episode season on Netflix in 2018. This news was confirmed by the director of the original series Shinichiro Watanabe. The more exciting news is that the first episode of the series Cowboy Bebop will be written by the screenwriter of one of the greatest movies of the superhero world that is Thor: Ragnarök. Therefore, we could imagine how great the episode is going to be just from this news that the series would be penned by Christopher Yost.

This period is just opposite of the original series as in the original Cowboy Bebop the episodes were comparatively shorter. However, the co-writer of the series Javier Grillo-Marxuach gave a valid explanation for the episode being this long. He has stated that the longer episode will be proved helpful as the longer episodes will provide the room to series so that it can build up its narrative as well as all the characters can also develop their storylines. This show could be slightly different from the format of the original show. Cowboy Bebop will have a storyline and will have its core focus on the episodic adventure.

To this statement he also added that “But we are looking at the show and saying, who are the some of the great villains in this show, and how can we put them into this broader narrative? So that we are telling both of the big stories that Cowboy Bebop tells.”
