ok well he did die, the movie was set before the end of the series!
I know this is dumb question!
But still. Someone said he did, and then another said he didn't, because of the movie.
So did he die?
Edited the title.
DON'T PUT SPOILERS IN THE TITLE!
And yes, he's dead. Dead didly -ead.

EDIT: its not a dumb question, it was a big question mark for years, but the creator finally stated that spike was dead when he was approached to add more to the cowboy bebop series due to its popularity.
There is some contention about whether or not Spike actually died, although it has nothing to do with the movie. At the end of the series, when Spike falls over after his battle with Vicious, it's never actually stated that he's dead. The director himself states that he left Spike's fate inconclusive.

I've been gone for awhile but.
In my opinion spike gave up on life.
Still I reviewed some on magazines and the director and creator both say it's undecided so the fans will ownder.
Man they know how to make me think.
I hope anyone who reads this comes u pwith thier own conclusion.
Well this is somewhat an old topic but ive just recently finished the bebop series . I don't think spike died , The main heads the had things to do with the show have left it unsaid wether he did or did not and usually when they say that it's because there's a chance they will bring him back in some form ,Even though its been stated that bebop is done , shows have a way of comming back eventually despite what they said when the series wrapped , I don't see another series coming anytime soon but there may be another movie wich would most likley take place after the 26th episode .
Theres no way to have another bebop show or movie without spike so if either of those ever come to fruition it wouldn't be very hard to say he didn't die , They can say it was to leave it up to the viewers wether he died or not but not actually saying he's dead or saying he's not hints that he isn't also faye , jet , ed and ein are clearly still alive .
Even though the show spanned 2 seasons wich is longer then alot of anime shows do it felt rushed in the last few episodes , julia appearing for 30 seconds then being killed things like that felt forced . So hoefully in some way bebop where it is now will be continued , Having them as bounty hunters leaves alot of room for more stories to tell .
A long winded way of saying From what ive read about the series the director etc i dont think spike is dead.
he died. the indian dude gave jet the speech on how everyone has a star and it fades when they die. you see a star fade away at the end of the credits. hes dead, alright.
