After an impressive first season of Alice in Borderlands on Netflix, many fans have been left wondering about a possible second season. It’s still too early for Netflix to decide Alice’s future in Borderlands, but early signs indicate that we might hear some positive news soon.
Alice at the Frontier is an upcoming Netflix Original live adaptation of the manga of the same name by author Hara Aso. The series is directed by Shinsuke Sato and has been written by Yasuko Kuramitsu.
At the time of writing, Alice on the Border has only been available to stream on Netflix for five days. With the series still extremely new, we don’t expect to hear any renewal news for at least several weeks.
This is normal for Netflix as the streaming service will wait to collect all the data it needs to judge whether an Original is worth renewing or not.
A huge positive for the possible renewal of Alice on the Border is how the series is performing on Netflix around the world. The Original is already in the top 10 charts in over 50 countries. In particular, the series is doing well in Asian countries where the series has already reached number one in Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Hong Kong.
What to expect from Alice at the Frontier season 2?
The first season has covered approximately 31 chapters of the manga, leaving another 33 chapters to be covered.
The hero of the show, Arisu had had a heavy hand during the first season. Upon initially arriving with two of his friends, Korube and Chota, they eventually sacrificed themselves to ensure that Arisu had the best chance of progress.
The climax of the season came during the game of ten of hearts, where the beach residents had to correctly guess who the “Witch” was. After many infighting, many competitors died in the confusion of the game, but Arisu was able to correctly predict the identity of the Witch, revealing that it was Momoka.
In the wake of Niragi burning the beach mansion to the ground, the competitors placed the witch’s body on a bonfire and thus completed the game.
Arisu and Usagi later discovered that Momoka and Asahi were not competitors, and were in fact distributors. The role of the traffickers was to sabotage the games in exchange for visas. Thanks to the evidence on Momoka’s phone, Arisu and Usagi were able to locate the underground control room, but whoever they perceived as the game masters had been killed.
In the final moments, a woman, Mira, appears on the screens and reveals that the games have just begun, inviting everyone to compete in the next stage of the game. Returning to the surface, the competitors witnessed the airships fly through the city of Tokyo with letters 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 continue playing the games if they hope to solve the mystery that surrounds the world and who the gamemasters are running it.
When is Alice in Borderlands season 2 coming to Netflix?
If we assume that Netflix renews the series for a second season, then we could see the return of Alice in Borderlands in late 2021.
Fans of the series have started to speculate on a 2021 release date thanks to possible Easter eggs seen in the closing moments of Season 1. As the blimps flew, there were several buildings with advertising for 2021.
