Where is the production status of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners?

Official Production Status: Post-Production (Last Updated: 22/11/2021)

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. As Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is an animated series “filming” could indicate when the casts of the different dubs were recorded. Unfortunately, we are still waiting to learn if any recordings happened.
