Revealed during Netflix’s Geeked Week, an event dedicated to geek culture shows, movies, and games available and set to arrive on the streaming platform, a new teaser trailer and "Inside Look" mark the first time the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners animated series has been shown off in motion. In addition to commentary about the show’s development from key CD PROJEKT RED staff involved in the project, the documentary also features first-look stills and concept art as well as an exclusive clip and scene breakdown from the anime. Future behind the scenes videos will cover other aspects of the show, with extra insight from members of Studio Trigger.

The new key visual for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, drawn by chief character designer of the show Yoh Yoshinari and released as part of Geeked Week, presents the show’s protagonists, David and Lucy. The pair is also shown throughout the teaser trailer and behind the scenes video, along with other major and minor characters 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. Having everything to lose, he chooses to stay alive by becoming an edgerunner — a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk.

Bringing the world to life in Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is acclaimed Japanese-based animation company Studio Trigger, with Hiroyuki Imaishi (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare) directing the show. Yoh Yoshinari (Little Witch Academia, BNA: Brand New Animal) is assigned as chief character designer as well as executive animation director. Masahiko Otsuka (Star Wars: Visions ‘The Elder’) and Yoshiki Usa (GRIDMAN UNIVERSE series) are in charge of writing the screenplay based on the story provided by CD PROJEKT RED.
