Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is an upcoming anime series by Studio Trigger inspired by CD PROJECT RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 game. The anime is scheduled to premier on Netflix in September 2022.

The series will have 10 stand-alone episodes, each telling a different story focusing on a main hero David Martinez.

What is the plot of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners?

The story centers on a street kid named David Martinez, who is trying to survive in Night City – a futuristic, technologically advanced place where people are obsessed with making improvements to their bodies using cybernetic implants, and other kinds of body modifications.

With everything to lose our hero decides that in order to stay alive he must become an “edgerunner” – a mercenary outlaw that is also known as a “cyberpunk”. But with our hero’s reckless attitude will he be able to survive the corruption and dangers of this dystopian world?

On June 8, 2022 Netflix also released an exclusive clip for the upcoming show:
