Fans of the “Alice in Borderland” live-action series received an early present when Netflix renewed it for a second season on Thursday. Judging from how the first eight episodes ended, main protagonists Arisu and Usagi will be subjected to even more dangerous games in the upcoming installment.
‘Alice in Borderland’ season 2 release date
The production of “Alice in Borderland” season 2 was announced barely two weeks after the live-action series adaptation premiered on Netflix. It has since received generally positive reviews from critics.
Variety also reports that the show has been inducted into Netflix’s top 10 most-watched titles in almost 40 countries shortly after its premiere last Dec. 10. “Alice in Borderland” season 1 immediately became popular in Asian and European countries including Singapore, Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, The Philippines, Hong Kong, and Thailand. It also became immediately popular in Germany, France, Portugal, Austria, and Greece.
Other details about “Alice in Borderland” season 2 is still unknown, though. Netflix has yet to provide a release window for the continuation of the series. However, it is worth noting that filming of the first eight episodes reportedly took place from August 2019 to December of the same year. It is unknown why it took a year from the end of production before the show premiered on Netflix, but this pattern suggests fans might have to wait until 2022 for the next season.
‘Alice in Borderland’ season 2 spoilers, plot: What to expect
The end of the first eight episodes was also clearly set up to have a second season and implied that the real game has yet to start. That means Usagi and Arisu will have to keep working together in “Alice in Borderland” season 2 to continue to survive.
To those who do not know yet, the live-action series is an adaptation of the same title manga by Haro Aso. While there were major differences between the two series, including how season 1 ended, the show kept the detail of having Kano Mira as the real gamemaster. It is then a good idea to pick up the original manga series to see what possible games will be included in the series as fans wait for the premiere of “Alice in Borderland” season 2.
