‘Cyberpunk 2077’ animated series is getting its first trailer at Netflix’s ‘Geeked Week’ event next month
Fans of “Cyberpunk 2077” will finally see the first trailer for the animated series “Cyberpunk Edgerunners.” Nearly two years after the project was announced, the show is confirmed to be one of the titles to be featured in the upcoming Netflix “Geeked Week” event.
A few snippets from “Cyberpunk Edgerunners” can be seen in the teaser for Netflix’s Geeked Week. It is billed as a five-day event, with each day focusing on a certain genre of upcoming shows exclusively streaming on Netflix. While the showcase will kick off on June 6, “Cyberpunk 2077” fans might have to wait until June 10 to see the trailer.
The event’s final day will focus on shows that were inspired or based on popular video games. Aside from “Cyberpunk Edgerunners,” TV series adaptations from franchises like “Cuphead” and “Resident Evil” will be featured at Geeked Week as well.
Fans can follow the five-day affair through the official Geeked Week website. “Each day will be jam-packed with cast reveals, talent appearances, trailer premieres, sneak peeks, surprise announcements and so much more covering over 60 Netflix projects,” the streaming giant said in a blog post.
“Cyberpunk Edgerunners” was announced in June 2020, just a few months before CD Projekt Red’s latest flagship game was released. The animated series will have 10 episodes and has since been slated to premiere sometime in 2022.
Details about the animated series are still scarce. Aside from confirming that it is being produced by the Japanese animation company Studio Trigger, CD Projekt Red released a brief description of the show.
“‘CYBERPUNK: EDGERUNNERS’ tells a standalone, 10-episode story about a street kid trying to survive in a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future,” the description reads. “Having everything to lose, he chooses to stay alive by becoming an edgerunner—a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk.”
While it is set in the same universe as the video game, the official announcement made no mention of V, Night City, Johnny Silverhand, and other fan-favorite characters. It remains to be seen if Netflix and Studio Trigger will reveal the “Cyberpunk Edgerunners” release date with its official trailer next month.
