Netflix announced on Wednesday that Yoshihiro Togashi's Yu Yu Hakusho manga is inspiring a live-action series that will stream on Netflix simultaneously worldwide. Kazutaka Sakamoto, Director of Content Acquisition at Netflix, is serving as executive producer on the series, with Teru Morii as a producer. ROBOT is working on production alongside Netflix on planning and production. Sakamoto commented on the production, saying that they're gathering the best teams from both Japan and abroad to work on the project.

The manga follows 14-year-old delinquent Yusuke Urameshi, who dies after saving a child in a car accident. The Spirit World is surprised by his death and offers him a chance to come back as a "spirit detective" who is tasked with defeating demons.

Togashi (Hunter x Hunter) published the original Yū Yū Hakusho manga from 1990 to 1994. Viz Media began publishing the manga in its English edition of Shonen Jump in 2002, and it also released all 19 volumes in print.

The TV anime adaptation of the manga ran from October 10, 1992, to January 7, 1995, with 112-episodes. It also released two films and two original video anime (OVA).

A brand new OVA of Yu Yu Hakusho was released with a Blu-ray box set of the series on October 26, 2018, in Japan. It adapts the "Two Shot" bonus chapter from the manga's seventh volume and the manga's penultimate chapter "All or Nothing".

The manga also inspired a stage play that ran in Japan from August to September 2019.
