The green light came from Netflix for Alice in Borderland Season 3. The survival-themed action series returns with new episodes.
Alice in Borderland has been renewed for season 3. Netflix’s manga adaptation announced its new season with a short video with a Joker card on it.
The second season of the action, crime and mystery series Alice in Borderland, whose first season was published in 2020, was released in December 2022. After 9 months, Netflix decided to give the green light for the manga adaptation.
Alice in Borderland (Imawa no Kuni no Arisu), created by Japanese writer and artist Haro Aso, met with readers between 2010 and 2016. The screen adaptation of the series received positive notes from viewers and critics, but no updates about season 3 have been shared for a while.
The series begins with an unemployed young man named Ryohei Arisu, who spends time playing computer games, waking up one morning to find himself in a spooky Tokyo. The series is about Arisu and his friends’ struggle to play the “game” according to its rules in order to survive.
Alice in Borderland Receives Season 3 Approval
Netflix first shared a few playing cards on its social media account on September 27. While fans of the series thought that the post was a sign for Alice in Borderland season 3, it quickly turned out that the viewers were right. The digital streaming service officially confirmed that the series will return with a short video.
The second season of the series followed young Ryohei Arisu, played by Kento Yamazaki, and his friends searching for answers in a deserted Tokyo alternative where they were trapped. After a brutal season, the production ended its journey with an open-ended finale.
Arisu’s return to the real world and his failure to remember the terrible events in the parallel world united the audience in the opinion that the production did not have a final ending.
Although the producers of the series preferred an open-ended finale against a possible cancellation, they managed to get approval for the new season after 9 months. The first trailer for the third season came with the introduction of the Joker card. The first season of the production featured some numbered cards, and the second season featured faces behind some of the cards. However, the Joker card has never been mentioned in the series until now.
When Will Alice in Borderland Season 3 Be Released and What Will It Be About?
Based on the knowledge that the “games” will end when all the cards in the deck are collected, fans predict that the name behind the Joker card will be pursued in the 3rd season.
Written and directed by Shinsuke Sato, the series is written by Yoshiki Watabe and Yasuko Kuramitsu. A date has not been announced yet for Alice in Borderland season 3. However, it is estimated that the production can meet the audience in the autumn of 2024.
