Netflix has announced when the second season of Alice in Borderland, the world-famous Japanese series, will be released
Alice in Borderland is one of Netflix's latest signature hits. The Japanese series became world-famous soon after its streaming release on December 10, 2020, but has had renewed success especially following the Squid Game release, with which it has some similarities. It is based on the manga of the same name by Haro Aso.
The direction, on the other hand, is by Shinsuke Sato, known for working on other top content such as Death Note and Bleach. The first season, consisting of eight episodes, was released on Netflix about a year ago and two weeks later the platform announced the arrival of a second installment. Now finally there is confirmation and the famous streaming service has announced when the new episodes will be released. The audience is very curious about the fate of Arisu, the protagonist played by Kento Yamazaki, Japanese actor and model. In the first season we saw him juggling in a deserted Tokyo and now we are waiting for new plot twists.
Alice in Borderland 2: what it will be about
The first season of Alice in Borderland has an open ending: the surviving protagonists have just learned that they will soon be involved in new deadly games. In part, they've managed to find out who's maneuvering the games, but they still have to figure out how to get out of the nightmare.
Traditors, friends, fake accomplices, and allies: Alice in Borderland has all of these ingredients. The protagonist is Arisu, an unemployed boy, lazy and shy, but with a strong passion for video games. One day, he suddenly finds himself in an uninhabited Tokyo along with his best friends Chōta Segawa and Daisuke Karube.
The three boys strive to find the truth but find themselves caught up in an unscrupulous game, where they are forced to pass deadly tests. During the story, Arisu meets a young girl, Usagi, who joins him in order to figure out who the game master is.
The first season fits perfectly with the first part of the manga Haro Aso, which was serialized in a magazine between 2010 and 2016. Based on predictions, in the second season, it could follow the plot until the end of the story.
Unfortunately, there is no definite news about the plot and it will have to wait a lot longer since filming will last until the end of 2021.

The second chapter will feature Kento Yamazaki and Tao Tsuchiya as Ryōhei Arisu and Yuzuha Usagi, respectively. The direction will once again be handled by Shinsuke Sato.
