Netflix has announced that their popular Japanese Original series “Alice in Borderland” has been renewed for a second season. The show, which premiered earlier this month, is based on the manga series “Imawa no Kuni no Alice” by Haro Aso which ran from 2010 to 2016. The series follows Arisu—a listless, jobless and video-game-obsessed young man—who 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.
Since launching on December 10, Alice in Borderland has been popular in Japan and across Asia — Malaysia, Hong Kong, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam — as well as outside, making it to Top 10 in Germany, France, Portugal, Austria and Greece, among other places. In all, it’s been in Top 10 in nearly 40 countries/territories.
