The series seems to be one of the few shows that is capable of crossing borders and breaking into other countries.
According to Flixpatrol, the show is still in the top 10 world titles even after 14 days. Although the series has not yet broken into several English-dominated countries, the series has had a good performance across Europe and Asia.
What to expect Alice in Borderland second season?
The first season included approximately 31 manga chapters, with 33 more chapters to process.
The hero of the series, Arisu, had heavy hands during the first season. They initially arrived with two of his friends, Korube and Chota, eventually sacrificing themselves to provide Aris with the best chance of progress.
The peak of the season came during the game of ten hearts, where the inhabitants of the beach had to guess exactly who the “Witch” was. After a lot of mutual conflicts, many competitors were killed in confusion in the game, but Arisu managed to correctly predict the identity of the Witch, revealing that it was Momoka.
Following in the footsteps of Niragi who burned down a mansion on the beach, contestants placed the witch’s body on a bonfire and thus completed the game.
Arisu and Usagi then discovered that Momoka and Asahi were not competitors, but actually dealers. The role of dealers was to sabotage games in exchange for visas. Thanks to the evidence on Momok’s phone, Aris and Usagi were able to locate the underground control room, but who they considered killed.
In the last moments, a woman Mira appears on the screens, who reveals that the games have just started and invites them all to compete in the next phase of the game. Upon returning to the surface, the contestants witnessed crashes flying over the city of Tokyo with maps hanging below them.
With many games yet to be challenged, Arisu and Usagi have a long way to go before they can escape. The couple will have to keep playing games if they have hope to solve the mystery surrounding the world and who the gemmasters who run it are.
When is Alice in Borderland second season coming to Netflix?
Now we got a quick rebuild of the series, we could see that Alice in Borderland return at the end of 2021.
Fans of the series have begun speculating about the release date of 2021 thanks to potential Easter eggs seen in the final moments of the first season. As the whirlwinds flew over them, there were more buildings with advertising for 2021.
