In a thrilling announcement, Netflix has confirmed the return of its popular Japanese sci-fi drama, Alice in Borderland, for a highly-anticipated third season.
The second season of Alice in Borderland, which debuted in December 2022, took the streaming world by storm, becoming Netflix Japan’s most-watched series, surpassing even anime titles. It soared into the Top 10 charts in over 90 countries, claiming the number one spot in 17 of them and accumulating an astonishing 200 million viewing hours worldwide.
Fans of the series will be delighted to know that Kento Yamazaki and Tao Tsuchiya will reprise their roles as Arisu and Usagi in Season 3. This season promises to delve deeper into the characters’ growth as they navigate the perilous and enigmatic world of Borderland. Director Shinsuke Sato, known for his work on the previous seasons, will continue to helm the series, ensuring it maintains its trademark intensity and vivid aesthetic.
Alice in Borderland is based on Haro Aso’s manga series of the same name. It unfolds the captivating tale of Arisu, who finds himself transported to a parallel universe where survival hinges on playing and winning a series of deadly games. These games are categorised by the suits of a deck of playing cards, each presenting a unique challenge.
While the second season of the live-action adaptation completed the original manga’s run, it concluded with an electrifying cliffhanger involving the mysterious Joker card, leaving fans eagerly anticipating an additional season. It remains to be seen whether the third season will adapt one of the manga sequels — Alice on Border Road or Alice in Borderland Retry — or tell an original story.
