In a dystopia riddled with corruption and cybernetic implants, a talented but reckless street kid strives to become an edgerunner: a mercenary outlaw.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is an upcoming anime series and spin-off of Cyberpunk 2077 created by Studio Trigger for Netflix. Containing 10 episodes, it will premiere in September 2022.


Edgerunners tells a standalone, 10-episode story about a street kid - David - trying to survive in a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future, Night City. Having everything to lose, he chooses to stay alive by becoming an edgerunner—a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk.[1]
