Has Cyberpunk: Edgerunners been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners expands on the lore and ideas seen in Night City and fleshes them out into a high-octane, pulsating 10 episode anime. With plenty of violence, gore and deep characterisation, Edgerunners is a blast from start to finish.

After finishing all 10 episodes, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:

What is Cyberpunk: Edgerunners about?

The first couple of episodes work to set the scene, introducing us to a street kid called David. His mum Gloria is overworked and unfortunately ends up passing away after a car accident. Grief-stricken and beaten by bullies, David decides to get implants to enhance his body. However, those implants belong to a psychotic man named James Norris and there are concerns that David could adopt some of his psychotic traits.

Before any of this transpires though, David meets Lucy and her gang. They want the implant inside of David but he compromises with them, deciding to work one gig at a time to pay them back instead. With monstrous Maine watching over the group, the show moves into a more episodic structure as David learns the ropes, is trained by Lucy and gets to know the rest of the group group, taking out targets along the way. Everything is then brought together nicely during one last mission, stretched across a couple of bombastic, high-action eps to close the show out on a high.

Has Cyberpunk: Edgerunners been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners has not been renewed for a second season. Given the nature of the show’s content, that could well change if it does good numbers for Netflix.

Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.

So far, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners has had an excellent reception with critics giving this show really good reviews across the board. Audiences are also incredibly positive on this too, which is always a bonus!

Taking everything into consideration, we’re predicting that Cyberpunk: Edgerunners will not be renewed for a second season. But why? Well, there’s not much scope for the story to progress unless the focal point is shifted across to Lucy and she heads off on a revenge plot. However, with most of the central cast either killed off or getting a good deal of closure, this feels more like a one-and-done deal.

We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!

What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel. The conclusion, as mentioned above, doesn’t really open this one up to an expansion unless the characters are changed and we follow different people from Night City, which is, of course, always a possibility. Based on the core characters we meet here, it seems unlikely that a renewal would be on the cards.

Of course, we could see a surprise renewal on the cards and be made to eat our words! A second season would certainly be welcome but as mentioned above, we predict that this will not be renewed. but we’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!

  1. tiempo: 21:18 lucy intenta hackear al villano y este corta la conexión de lucy, esta consigue su objetivo y lo que el villano ve es solo una simulación de lo que lucky logro, posterior a ello logran salvar a DAVID, para luego salir corriendo en busca del DOCTOR que le instalo por 1ra vez el implante. asi es como logran restaurar su conciencia de DAVID, luego de unos dias el villano, los logra encontrar pero con problemas de vision debido al hackeo, posterior a ello escapan de suerte en medio de explosiones, es ahi donde por EL PODER DEL GUIÓN, escapan. luego idean un plan donde puedan detener a ambas ORGANIZACIONES, usando las habilidades de LUCY, para poder al menos lograr encontrar una cura para DAVID con la finalidad de que NO SE DESCONTROLE…. lo otro seria que no mueran todos los actores y retomen HASTA EL MOMENTO EN QUE EL CREADOR DE VIDEOS que murio en el capitulo 9 el cual tenia 1 ojo detras del cuello.

  2. I hope they reconstruct David as a construct/cyborg even if he works for the corp. it gives Lucy a chance to be the main character and we watch her bring David back to his old self. Than they can develop together, David was way to good and the character love Lucy and David had was awesome sad to see it just end, someone has to be able to kill Adam smasher and it’s gotta be david

  3. If y’all don’t make a way for David be alive for season 2, next season is not gonna be good…

  4. I really like the concept of season 2 focusing on a different group of characters in the same city but with their own story and backgrounds.

    I also like the idea that David was some how special and might have in some form survived. Perhaps the episode one bit where he was a blur in the class room virtual meditation room was not due to a faulty head set but due to him being some how different. The second season could focus on a kid who is a David fan boy, who after a lot of hard trials and life lessons finally gets to meet what’s left of his idol and some how reunite him with his lost love on the moon. Perhaps a black Void or blank space in the computer world (David’s consciousness) leads this person to David’s remains and the means to take them to the moon.

  5. Possible hint for 3 seasons in episode 5.

    Go back to episode 5 where they are at JK’s place there is a library full of Sandy’s. We see David put no. 32 back on the shelf and you will see the following in this order.

    1.Brain Death II : 1 through to 20
    2. Edgerunners : 1 through to 32 (could be a hint for possibly 3 seasons up to 32 episodes)
    3. It’s alive not : 1 through to 3

  6. I think it should of been one big day dream back when David first met Lucy and everything happens again but like it all goes right this time or maybe b4 they reach Lucy he day dreams it and instead they all gtfo of there instead of sticking around like they did I’d be much happier with the second season if they did make one starting off with that

  7. David please be alive I mean smasher said he could be useful so maybe he shot next to his head or something who knows that’s what I wish truly

  8. I’m starting to like the idea of one of the corporations making David a construct out of his DNA against his wishes and making him work for them ect until Lucy hears about it and possibly try’s to make him remember his old self or a more unbelievable manner where smasher dies somehow by head shot with a broken ligament misfiring or a sniper of some sort like the driver kills smasher and saves David it’s sad to see a new release with that much potential only have 1 season with so much left of the story to unveil I guess we’ll have to wait and see

  9. I always felt like Lucy was the real main character.

    More needs to be made of why Arasaka were looking into the old net.
    Also, she has such an great set up as an assassin.

  10. Loved it so much, the ending couldn’t be more fitting although i’m sad we wont be seeing any more David by the looks of it..
    Perhaps they took some of his splattered brain tissue and made him a full cyborg?

  11. Although part of my heart wants to believe that David is still alive, it was very obvious that he had zero countermeasures against atom smasher and there is no way atom smasher will decide to spare him so the fact is David is 100% dead. I would love to see a season 2 but I will even love it better if it wasn’t based on the plot of Lucy trying to get revenge. I don’t like it that David is dead but the show couldn’t have come to a better ending. It wouldn’t be a good watch to see the only survivor of the gang going back to that life after she had fulfilled her dream. I would feel a lot better if the season 2 was based on another gang coming up in night city and fighting their own battles, but then again things don’t always go as we want them to.

  12. I would love a season 2 that focuses on the time skip and fills it in. We would be able to see the friend zoning of Rebbeca and also see how David developed as a Leader!

  13. Plot twist David shoots smasher in the head. Arasaka woman comes out of building and brings David in to HQ

  14. I feel like a Lucy-centric, Deep-dive season 2 would be a logical step. Have Lucy and a new deuteragonist, but rather than implants and gunshots, the season could go full on the bulk of the action focused on Deep-Divers killing people from the inside of the net (as well as expanding the Deep Dive, Old Net concept), with Lucy maybe haunted by David in her own mind, have a new partner who reminds her of him, and maybe her final revenge against Smasher in a climax that could very well be just like Stranger Things Season 4 finale (if you think of the simultaneous battle between Eleven and Vecna but with Lucy and Smasher while the other characters deal with their own share of trouble in the real world). Culminating in Lucy’s victory in keeping the new guy alive like redeeming herself for letting David die. (And hey, maybe a last-minute plot-twist, have David’s mind somehow preserved on the net, as if Arasaka wants to study his brain for new improvements on their implants)

    Now, if you guys need an extra dosage of Cyberpunk epicness with unapologetic bad guys, blood baths and compelling deaths, GO WATCH AKUDAMA DRIVE!

  15. Season 2 dosent even have to follow where S1 left off but focus on a new group of characters deepening the cyberpunk world

  16. I think David is dead. Smasher literally proposes him to become a construct (fully mechanized person) like himself – “You could make an interesting construct.” – and David tells him to flip off. After that Smasher blasts his head off. Pretend not to see it all you want but its there clear as day.

  17. David is dead 100%, you can buy his coctail inside the Afterlife, and you know what that means..

  18. For the sake of love please have season 2, David is alive please let them reunite netflix do your Job

  19. On episode 7. I pre ordered the game 2 years before it finally released. I played the damn game even with all the bugs because I loved the story. Got the new Xbox finally and it run pretty good surprisingly. Replaying it again for the 3rd time even though i have little time to play and soo many games i haven’t played. This show is so good! I hope it continues.

  20. La historia quedó cerrada no creo que volvamos a ver más a estos personajes ,pienso que habrá segunda temporada contando otra historia diferente al fin y al cabo en night city hay mucho que contar y el universo de cp2077 es muy rico

  21. Didn’t see David die, bring him and Lucy back. There is still plenty of villains left between the two corps. He could become a construct and season 2 could be about Lucy bringing him back to himself leading to season 3 when they’re reunited. 3 seasons sound perfect. At least 2, anything but 1 😩
