Netflix has renewed the Japanese dystopian survival television show ‘Alice In Borderland’ for a third season. Launched in 2020, the TV series is based on a manga from Haro Aso.
The streaming service explained in a PR statement, “Get ready for another heart-pounding journey into the twisted world of survival as Netflix officially confirms the much-awaited renewal of its global smash hit series, Alice in Borderland.”
“With Kento Yamazaki and Tao Tsuchiya reprising their roles as Arisu and Usagi in Season 3, fans can look forward to witnessing the evolution of their characters in the ever-dangerous landscape of Borderland. Shinsuke Sato’s continued direction will also ensure that the series maintains its trademark intensity and cinematic excellence,” they continued.
Netflix said, “Based on the manga series of the same name by Haro Aso, Alice in Borderland follows the story of Arisu after he is transported to a parallel universe in which he has to play and win games to remain alive. The games are divided into four categories represented by suits on a deck of playing cards.”
The show is directed by Shinsuke Sato who also serves as a co-writer with Yoshiki Watabe and Yasuko Kuramitsu. Kaata Sakamoto is on board as an executive producer and Yutaka Yamada composing the music.
Netflix added, “For now, the Joker card has appeared, declaring the triumphant return of Alice in Borderland. Fans can expect nothing short of an adrenaline-fueled rollercoaster ride as the series continues to explore profound themes of humanity, sacrifice, and the pursuit of a meaningful existence.”
The manga was published by the Japanese publisher Shogakukan for their ‘Shōnen Sunday S’ magazine. Its original run was from November 25, 2010, to March 2, 2016, but it was re-released in the ‘Weekly Shōnen Sunday’ magazine. Viz Media publishes an English version in the United States.
