If you are still caught up in the death game hype created by Squid Game, you need not look further than Netflix’s Alice in Borderland.
Last year, the show received all kinds of praise from the audience and critics alike and even became the most viewed Netflix show in Japan for 2022, even though it was released on December 10.
After recently gaining international attention after obvious comparisons, Netflix has wasted no time delivering good news to the series’ new and old fans.
Netflix has announced the second season of the live-action adaptation of Alice in Borderland in December 2022.
Although there’s no question about the first season’s quality, the most surprising thing was how loyal it was to the manga.
Netflix has had a bad track record when it comes to live-action adaptations of anime or manga, but this has stood out to be an exception.
It really raised expectations for some of the upcoming live-action adaptations by Netflix.
The first season of the show roughly covered the first 31 chapters of the manga. Given that there are just 37-ish chapters to go, the second season will be the final season.
The show ended with our group meeting Mira, one of the game masters who announced the new Face Card Games. They must collect all the face cards to gain a spot in the real world and understand what Borderland actually is.
If you thought the games were difficult untill now, wait for what season 2 has in store for you.
