No Plans For A Second Season Of CYBERPUNK: EDGERUNNERS, According To CD Projekt Red

Despite the success of the Netflix series Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, there are no plans for a second season. According to studio CD Projekt Red, the series was planned as "standalone work."

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the critically acclaimed anime series based on the video game Cyberpunk 2077, debuted on Netflix in September. Following its 10-episode run, fans are eager to jump back into the dystopian world of corruption, crime, and cybernetic implants.

But according to CD Projekt Red, the Polish video game developer/publisher responsible for overseeing the series, there are no plans for a second season of the hit show.

In an interview with Famitsu (translated by VGC), CD Projekt Red's Japanese community manager Satoru Honma acknowledged a desire to continue to work with Japanese studios on future anime projects, but added Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was "planned as standalone work."

"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. 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’."

Of course, plans can and do change, especially depending on the success of a series. With Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, the series received a perfect 100% on Rotten Tomatoes with a near-perfect 96% audience score. It was even in Netflix's global top ten for over a month. The issue, however, is the show's rather definitive ending which leaves little room to further explore this particular story.

Honma didn't completely rule out future anime projects, though. “Even if we could make more anime in the future, I don’t know if it would be Season 2 or something completely different," he stated.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was animated by Tokyo-based animation company Studio Trigger. It was directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill), and features an original score composed by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill).

The show's success provided renewed interest in CD Projekt Red's game Cyberpunk 2077. After a troubled launch, many had written off the game completely. However, CDPR spent over a year addressing the many issues that plagued the game and following Cyberpunk Edgerunners' release, fans flocked back to find that it had actually become a decent game again.

“Overseas people say that the anime has given CDPR a second chance,” Honma told Famitsu. “We are grateful to TRIGGER for giving us the chance to enjoy the story of V and Johnny Silverhand after watching the anime.”

CD Projekt Red recently announced plans for a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077 which, perhaps, could provide some additional source material for a new anime.
