Cyberpunk: Edgerunners' Standalone Story Promises Change in Season 2

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners releases today on Netflix, and thanks to the episodes’ short runtime, subscribers will finish it in no time. This is why we explore the possibilities of Season 2.

Edgerunners follows protagonist David Martinez as a struggling Santo Domingo relocator who has to pay his way in Night City as a cyberpunk. 

Directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi and Hiromi Wakabayashi and created by Rafa? Jaki and Studio Trigger for Netflix, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is an anime spin-off series set in the universe of CD Projekt Red’s action-RPG Cyberpunk 2077 that takes place in the open world of Night City.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Season 2 Possibilities

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners has not been billed as a limited series nor a miniseries, meaning it does have room to expand, legally.

However, Netflix has confirmed that the anime is a “standalone” story, which could hint at what Season 2 has in store.

Its description suggests Season 2 will have a completely new story with fresh characters and the Season 1 ending also supports this theory.

Studio Trigger may well have a long line of original, standalone stories in mind to continue the series, and the anime’s popularity certainly warrants its continuation.

“Amazing”, “peak”, and “damn good” are just some of the words used to describe the series as a whole, with some singing its praises after only watching three episodes.

This positivity bodes well for the anime to continue into Season 2 and Night City aficionados will be more than happy to receive it.
