We’re taking the production status with a pinch of salt as we haven’t heard any official reports from Studio Trigger or Netlfix regarding where the production of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is currently at.

However according to the timeline of production updates from IMDb, “filming” began on April 7th, 2021, and concluded by September 10th, 2021. Since Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is an animated series, “filming” could indicate when the casts of the different dubs were recorded.
