Netflix anime series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners has landed on the streamer, taking viewers back to Night City, a world fans were first introduced to back in the famous 2020 video game, Cyberpunk 2077.


The new series follows David Martinez, a young student at the bottom of the city’s ladder who’s drawn into the underworld of Night City, becoming an edgerunner – a misfit group of outlaws also known as cyberpunks.

The show has been hailed for its dedication to the game's aesthetics, concepts and soundtrack by fans of the franchise, so it’s hardly surprising that thoughts are already turning towards a follow-up to the initial 10 episodes.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was promoted as a standalone title based around a new character (though fans of the video game will spot familiar locations and background characters in the show), meaning that the Netflix series has limitless possibilities surrounding the story and characters for potential future seasons.

So, read on for everything you need to know about the chances of a Cyberpunk season 2 on Netflix.

Will there be a Cyberpunk: Edgerunners season 2?

Cyperpunk: Edgerunners has not yet officially been confirmed for season 2 by either Netflix or Studio Trigger, the animation team behind the new series.

Of course, the key factor determining the renewal status of the show will come down to the streamer and its viewership.

Viewers who've already binged the Netflix series will be aware that the vast majority of the Cyberpunk crew wind up dead by the time the credits roll, meaning the finale didn’t exactly leave the door open for a direct continuation.

However, the series was promoted as a standalone title based around a new character, meaning there are countless directions a second season could go in.

What could happen in a potential Cyberpunk season 2?

The only main character left alive in Cyperpunk: Edgerunners by the time the credits roll is Lucy.

Season 2 could follow her as she embarks on revenge against Adam Smasher for taking David away, or as she assembles a new team of misfits to destroy Arasaka and the Militech group, the evil corporations still at large at the end of season 1.

However, with a second season yet to even be confirmed, fans will have to wait for more details.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is available now on Netflix. Sign up for Netflix from £6.99 a month. Netflix is also available on Sky Glass and Virgin Media Stream.
