Netflix has decided to renew their Alice in Borderland series for a second season. This renewal comes 14 days after the first season was released on Netflix.
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.
The official Netflix Japan YouTube channel has posted a new teaser for the upcoming second season. You can view it below:
