I’ve been trying to check if Cyberpunk Edgerunners, my new favorite series, will be renewed for a second season or not, and all it got back is a bunch of My own articles. So, I thought I’d write something about the possibility of a second season, and why I do or don’t think we’ll get one. Because no, there is no official information from Which A source about Cyberpunk Edgerunners Season 2 now, not Netflix, not CPDR, not Trigger.
For now, I tend to be a bit skeptical that Cyberpunk Edgerunners will get a second season, as much as I’d like to see it. why? many reasons.
View percentage – While we don’t know exactly what it is, despite the high fan praise and criticism of the series, it doesn’t seem to do all that great in the Watches department. Edgerunners briefly appeared on Netflix’s Top 10 list for a day or two around sites #5-7 before disappearing completely, and never came back. Compare that to other animated video game series she has It was greenlit for its second season, Arcane, which ended up taking first place in 38 countries during its multi-week rollout. Sure, I think it’s possible that the anime series in general won’t perform as well as the high-profile live-action series, but I don’t know if the viewership is what they want it to be, even if the quality is top notch.
Effects Trigger, the animation studio, is very famous for giving one-off shows and not returning for second seasons for many of their series in the past. When the potential of Edgerunners Season 2 comes up, it always shows Trigger’s unwillingness to continue on the same projects, so it might take some convincing to get them to stay rather than move on to something else.
a story – We have to go in spoiler The area is here, and if you’ve seen Edgerunners, you probably know what I’m talking about. Edgerunners season 2 will require almost a whole new cast because almost everyone in the series dies except for Lucy. So either the show continues Just She and a new cast, or must turn out to be an anthology and take on another story within Night City (that would be optional). I also think this specific Edgerunners story has been in the works for years, and I’m not sure they have a second story on their deck. This was probably planned to be the only season, although reception could change that.
So, here are the reasons why this doesn’t happen, and what about the reasons for that could Getting season 2?
It’s really really cool – I mean this show has almost the highest combined scores for criticism (100%) and audience (98%) Which It appears on Netflix in its entirety. While I know Netflix has been notorious for killing good shows with insufficient viewership in the past, they’ve also made a few exceptions lately for the high-rated stuff and ardent fan bases (Heartstopper comes to mind, recently renewed for two more seasons despite not topping the top ten). Netflix loves to enjoy good shows, and Cyberpunk Edgerunners is a great series. If Castlevania and Arcane can have multiple seasons, I don’t think there’s anything stopping the Edgerunners from getting the green light for more info, if all the partying is on board. This is the path I hope to take.
But we don’t know anything yet. The show’s creators aren’t talking about season two because everyone is probably waiting for the data to come in. CDPR is no doubt pleased with the interest the show has generated in the game, but they have also expressed their wish. Continue with Cyberpunk as a multimedia IP, although Season 2 of Edgerunners isn’t specifically mentioned in that plan. Not yet at least.
