Netflix renewed the Japanese series Alice In Borderland at the end 2020. It appears that Netflix will also renew the series. Alice is Borderland by Hara Aso is a Netflix Original live action adaptation of the manga. Shinsuke Sato is the director and Yasuko Kuramitsu is the writer.
We have very good news for all you Alice in Borderland fans! It’s been confirmed that Alice in Borderland season 2 will be coming to Netflix in December 2022! This might seem like a long time from now, but the time will fly by.
It’s about to be a year on Dec. 10 since the first season premiered on Netflix, and we had high hopes that we’d see the second season in 2021. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. But now it’s been confirmed that we’ll be seeing Alice in Borderland season 2 on our screens in the new year.
Alice in Borderland Season 2 Netflix Renewal Status
Netflix gave a quick renewal to Alice in Borderland just two weeks after it dropped all over the globe. It did this as an early Christmas present. This announcement was made via multiple social media accounts of Netflix around the globe.
This series is one of very few that have been able transcend borders and reach other countries.
In November 2021, Netflix confirmed the news at a virtual Japan Festival event. We initially predicted that we’d see the new season in spring 2022, but it looks like we won’t see the new season until winter 2022. Since season 1 came out in December, I guess Netflix wanted to keep up with this release date pattern. We can’t think of another reason of why Netflix would hold this hit Netflix original for this long.
Filming for season 2 is scheduled to be wrapped in December 2021, so a late 2022 release date seems unnecessary. But I guess the post-production process takes a while for this television series, and that’s why we have to wait so long for season 2.
Nevertheless, we’re just happy we now have somewhat of an official release date. We just need the exact date.
Alice in Borderland Season 2 Release Date
Because of potential easter eggs in season 1, fans speculated on a 2021 release date. The blimps flew overhead and advertising for 2021 was displayed on several buildings. However, it is highly unlikely (if not impossible!) that the show will return in 2021.
COVID-19, still causing havoc Japan, meant that filming could not be started immediately. Filming did begin in the middle of July and also filming of season 2 will continue until December 2021.
Alice in Borderland season 2 Plot Explored
The first season covered approximately 31 chapters of the manga. There are 33 more chapters to go.
Arisu, the hero of the series was dealt a difficult hand in the first season. Arisu arrived initially with Korube, Chota and two of his closest friends. They eventually gave up to give Arisu the best chance at success.
The season’s climax came during the ten of hearts game, where the residents of the beach had to correctly guess who the “Witch” was. Many competitors died in the chaos of the game. However, Arisu was able correctly to identify the Witch and revealed it to be Momoka.
After Niragi had burned the beach house to the ground, Niragi’s competitors set the witch’s corpse on a bonfire. This completed the game.
Arisu, Usagi discovered that Momoka was not a competitor and that Asahi and Asahi were actually dealers. The dealers’ role was to sabotage the games in return for visas. Momoka’s evidence enabled Arisu to locate the underground control rooms. Usagi was able to identify the victims, but Usagi believed they were the gamemasters.
Mira, a woman appears on the screens to inform them that the games just began. She invites them all into the next stage. When they returned to the surface, competitors were shocked to see blimps carrying cards from below them as they flew across Tokyo.
Arisu, Usagi still have many games to conquer before they can escape. If they are to solve the mystery of the world and find out who its gamemasters were, the pair will need to keep playing the games.
