Get ready for another blood-soaked wild ride as Netflix has officially renewed its live-action series adaptation of ‘Alice in Borderland’ for season 2. The announcement has come just 2 weeks after the season 1 premiere, which has attracted many positive reviews from the audience and critics.
Based on ALICE IN BORDERLAND by Haro Aso, the series follows Ryohei Alice, a listless, jobless, and video-game-obsessed young man—suddenly finds himself in a strange, emptied-out version of Tokyo in which he and his friends must compete in dangerous games to survive. In this strange world, Arisu meets Usagi, a young woman who’s navigating the games alone. Together, they set out to unravel one mystery after another as they risk their lives and confront what it means to live.
The series debuted on December 10, and the first season has 8 episodes. Within a few days of its arrival, it has become one of the top trending shows on Netflix worldwide. The show's popularity is among the top 10 in Asian countries, also #1 in a few Asian regions. You can read our full review and featured article on ‘Alice in Borderland’ here.
