Cyberpunk Edgerunners Season 2: Everything we know so far
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners has landed on Netflix and fans of the franchise are clamoring for a follow-up to the initial 10 episodes, but will there be a Season 2?
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is an animated show that takes viewers on a ride through Night City from the perspective of a boy who is desperate to survive its dangerous streets.
When things start to become bleak, he chooses to embrace the life of a Cyberpunk (also known as an Edgerunner) in order to stay alive. The journey takes all kinds of twists and turns, and while it’s still early, it may even be influencing more people to check out the much maligned game that its based on.
Will there be a Cyberpunk Edgerunners Season 2?
It is unlikely a Season 2 for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is on the way.
Not only would the series’ ending make it difficult to piece a continuing story together, but before release, the show was advertised as a standalone project that didn’t require any knowledge of the game to enjoy.
Further adding to the unlikelihood is CD Projekt Red‘s Japan country manager Satoru Honma telling Famitsu the series was always meant to be a “standalone project.”
However, Honma did add that the Cyberpunk community could see more anime content coming their way in the future. “I personally would like to continue to work with Japanese studios to produce more anime in the future, partly because we have received very good feedback,” Honma explained.
While this doesn’t immediately disqualify it from sequel contention, it was also developed by Studio Trigger, which has quite the reputation for only producing one season of some of their most successful shows.
The good news is Trigger has returned to various projects in other forms, like film-length productions, so the dream of more Edgerunners content isn’t completely dead.
However, it’s not all bad news, as CD Projekt Red has announced that the sequel to the 2020 game is in development and will continue to build on the existing universe.
