Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Season 2

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is a 2022 Polish-Japanese cyberpunk web anime series based on CD Projekt Red’s video game Cyberpunk 2077.

Studio Trigger animated the series, which premiered on Netflix in September 2022 under the supervision of CD Projekt. Set in Mike Pondsmith’s Cyberpunk universe, the anime serves as a prequel to the game and takes place about a year before the events of Cyberpunk 2077.

What is Cyberpunk: Edgerunners: Season 2 About? (Spoiler Alert)

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners: Season 1’s finale had almost everyone in tears. Maine and Dorio’s deaths were brutal enough, but when Adam Smasher murdered Rebecca and David, it was the final nail in the coffin for all fans hoping for a happy ending.

Only Lucy and Falco escaped, and they are sadly the only remaining members of the cast.

The prequel concludes with Lucy’s arrival on the Moon, and the events of the game begin. If Cyberpunk: Edgerunners: Season 2 is made, it will presumably focus on a new group of Edgerunners.

And as for when it will take place, it could either take place after the events of Cyberpunk 2077 or as a story parallel to David or V’s.

The official Twitter account for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners and the game have both thanked fans for the warm reception, so while nothing has been confirmed, it wouldn’t be surprising if a second season was announced.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Was Always Meant to Be a Standalone Work

Honma told Famitsu that, while “Cyberpunk: Edgerunners” was a success, and the team is interested in pursuing other anime adaptations in the future, “Edgerunners” was always intended to be a one-and-done:

“Personally, I’d like to continue working with Japanese studios to produce more anime in the future, partly because we’ve gotten such positive feedback. To be clear, ‘Cyberpunk: Edgerunners’ was intended to be a standalone work, so there is no such thing as ‘we are actually working on Season 2 in the background.'”

That doesn’t rule out the possibility of a “Cyberpunk” anime in the future. Honma explained that the story from “Edgerunners” cannot be continued, but that CD Projekt Red is open to something “completely different.”

That means we might see other characters in Night City, a separate story from the tragic story of the Edgerunners, but no one should expect to see what happens to the surviving members.

To be honest, that’s probably for the best, because the show works brilliantly within its limited constraints, and a sequel could undermine that greatness. Maybe the Nomads will get their own show next. A “Mad Max” anime with the violence and sex of “Cyberpunk”? Netflix, take my money.

The Producer of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Has Stated That There Are Currently No Plans for a Second Season

The 10-episode anime series debuted on Netflix on September 13 to generally positive reviews.

As a result, CD Projekt Red’s Japan country manager Satoru Honma was asked in a recent interview with Famitsu if this reaction had led to the possibility of a second season.

Honma, on the other hand, stated that there were no plans to continue the story.

“I personally would like to continue working with Japanese studios in the future to produce more anime, partly because we have received very positive feedback,” Honma explained.

“However, just to be clear, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was planned as a standalone work, so there’s no such thing as ‘we are actually working on Season 2 in the background’.

“Even if we could make more anime in the future, I’m not sure if it would be Season 2 or something entirely new.”
