Cyberpunk 2077 is a title loaded with spectacular set pieces and characters, and now Netflix’s upcoming Cyberpunk Edgerunners series looks set to bring a new audience to the world of Night City.

The new series will follow a brand new cast of characters in the now-familiar and expansive Night City to players of the CDPR title. Whilst the actual game itself has had a difficult lifecycle thus far, many can agree that the actual aesthetics of the CD Projekt Red RPG are a love letter to the classic Paul Verhoeven films such as Total Recall and especially Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner.

Here’s everything that you need to know about Cyberpunk Edgerunner, including the connection to Cyberpunk 2077, How to Watch, development by Studio Trigger and more.

Release Date

A new trailer for Cyberpunk Edgerunners from Netflix has revealed that the series is set to stream on the platform in September 2022.

There is no official date locked in yet but the trailer has given us confirmation that we will be able to watch the series before the year is out.

You can watch the trailer below.
