Netflix showing off new Cyberpunk 2077 animated series during June’s Geeked Week
Netflix will be giving its Cyberpunk 2077 animated series a first airing – alongside glimpses of its live-action Resident Evil show and Cuphead season 2 – during its Geeked Week event in June.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, which was announced back in June 2020 well before Cyberpunk 2077’s troubled launch, is a 10-episode collaboration between CD Projekt and Japanese animation studio Trigger, which has previously worked on Little Witch Academia and Kill la Kill.
At the time of its announcement, CD Projekt said the series would follows the adventures of a street kid trying to survive in a technology- and body-modification-obsessed city of the future. “Having everything to lose,” went the official blurb, “he chooses to stay alive by becoming an edgerunner — a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk.”
According to Cyberpunk: Edgerunners’ newly unveiled website, Netflix will be revealing more of the animated series at some point on8th June. Geeked Week itself runs between 6th-10th June, promising “cast reveals, talent appearances, trailer premieres, sneak peeks, surprise announcements” and more on over 60 Netflix projects.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners won’t be the only game-related news incoming, either; Netflix is also set to share more on its upcoming live-action Resident Evil series (which got a pair of new trailers just last week) as well as season 2 of The Cuphead Show. It’ll also be showcasing some actual video games as it continues its tentative creep into the industry.
Elsewhere, Netflix’s Geeked Week trailer teases more on The Sandman, new seasons of Umbrella Academy, Stranger Things, Sweet Tooth, Alice in Borderland, Locke & Key, and Shadow and Bone, plus The Gray Man, The Sea Beast, Spiderhead, First Kill, The School for Good and Evil, The Dragon Prince, Wendell and Wild, Manifest, and Day Shift.
