Why Cowboy Bebop was canceled on Netflix after just one season – IGN the Fix: Entertainment


Netflix has canceled Cowboy Bebop. The live-action adaptation of the anime, Cowboy Bebop, will see its start and end in one season. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Spike Spiegel and his friends will no longer receive bounties, despite the cliffhanger of the last episode where they also revealed a new, familiar crew member to fans of the original series. According to Netflix VP of Original Programming Cindy Holland, why shows like Cowboy Bebop are canceled has more to do with the company’s overall return on investment. In 2018, during the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour, Holland said his decision making was “based on a process of examining the number of viewers versus the cost of renewal, which determines whether the cost of Another season’s production of a show is proportional to the number of viewers who the show receives. ” #CowboyBebop just hasn’t been a huge success for #Netflix.
