Hang on to your hats, anime fans.

Cowboy Bebop, the popular Japanese anime series, is getting a live-action series on Netflix. The show, which debuted back in 1998, will feature the show’s creator Shinichiro Watanabe as a consultant.

The anime’s first episode will be written by Christopher Yost, who most recently worked on Marvel‘s Thor: Ragnarok.

This isn’t the first time an adaptation for Cowboy Bebop has been in the works. In the late 2000s, Keanu Reeves was set to star as Spike Spiegel in a live-action movie adaptation, but the project never came to fruition.

Cowboy Bebop does not look like it is going to happen with me in it.” Reeves stated in a Reddit Q&A back in 2013. He added that the script was “great and amazing,” but would “cost like a half a billion dollars to make.”

Here’s to hoping the Netflix series is a bit cheaper.
