Season two of Alice In Borderland is due for release sometime in December, exclusively via Netflix. A firm release date for the show has yet to be announced.
Alice In Borderland is based on Aro Haso’s manga of the same name which ran from November 2010 until March 2016. The story follows high school student Ryohei Arisu and his friends as they try to survive a dystopian world where they have to compete in deadly games to get out alive.
Its first season was the most-watched live-action Japanese show on Netflix in 2020, and was renewed for a second season just days after its release.
Season one of Alice In Borderland also landed in the 10th spot in NME’s list of the best Asian TV shows of 2020, with writer Hidzir Junaini pronouncing the show “the rare anime to live-action adaptation that actually works”.
