Here is everything we know about Alice in Borderland Season 2 including the returning cast members and the potential release date on Netflix.
Following the premiere of ‘Alice in Bordlerland’, the Japanese live-action series based on the graphic novel (manga) by Hara Aso, in 2020 on Netflix, the series received a prompt renewal which seems destined to arrive in December of 2022.
The first season of Alice in Borderland follows Arisu (Kento Yamazaki), an early 20s jobless underachiever and avid gamer from a well-off Japanese family. Arisu, and his best friends Chota and Karube, are pulled into an alternate version of Tokyo, Japan, and forced to compete in a series of sadistic games in order to collect cards to, hopefully, return home. Both Chota and Karube pay the ultimate sacrifice early and Arisu ultimately must continue the journey by himself.
As Arisu embarks on his own, he meets others such as Usagi (Tao Tsuchiya), a daughter of a famous rock climber and quite the athlete herself. Forming a bond the two progress through various games and learn more about this alternate Tokyo including the meaning of the playing cards and the discovery of the Beach, an oasis of sorts for many more players of the game. Ultimately, tensions rise at The Beach to the point where season one ends with the building being burnt down, many residents dead, and the release of the face cards into the game.
Based on the source material, season one covered roughly half of the entire graphic novel.
