Alice In Borderland Season 1 recently dropped on Netflix and people are now asking themselves when Season 2’s release date will be. So, we did some investigating, and have tried to work out when Season 2 will be with us.
Before we get into whether Alice In Borderland Season 2 will happen over at Netflix, let’s talk a little about what happened in Season 1 and what the show’s actually about. The show is ) is a Japanese sci-fi suspense-thriller series. It’s based on the manga of the same name by Haro Aso. The series stars Kento Yamazaki as Arisu. Arisu finds himself lost in an abandoned Tokyo. Tokyo is now known as “Borderland” and Arisu is with his friends, Chōta (Yûki Morinaga) and Karube (Keita Machida).
Will there be an Alice In Borderland Season 2 on Netflix?
Here’s Netflix’s official plot synopsis of Alice In Borderland:
Arisu—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 in order 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.
One of the reasons why people have loved this show so much is because it feels a lot like a live-action manga series. It’s the reason why I loved it so much and cannot wait to see what will happen in a second season. The good news is that Alice In Borderland Season 2 is officially in the works. Netflix has put the second season into development basically straight after Season 1 landed on the streaming service.
When will the release date be?
It also seems as though Yoshiki Watabe, Yasuko Kuramitsu, and Shinsuke Sato will be back to write the second season’s scripts. I’m also pretty certain that Sato will also direct all the episodes, like he did in the first season.
As far as when Season 2 will land on Netflix, there will be delays to Alice In Borderland Season 2 due to the Coronavirus pandemic. That said, Netflix will want to make sure it’s ready as soon as possible. This means that we should expect Season 2 towards the beginning of 2022. I’ve heard rumours that it should be with us next January. That said, there could be delays due to the COVID-19.
