Alice In Borderland Season 3 Release Date – When Is It Coming To Netflix?

Alice In Borderland Season 3 Release Date – When Is It Coming To Netflix?

Alice in Borderland was a huge hit for Netflix when it was released in December 2020.

Fans of the Japanese sci-fi thriller just couldn't get enough of Arisu (Kento Yamazaki), Usagi (Tao Tsuchiya), Chōta (Yûki Morinaga) and Karube (Keita Machida) as they battled for survival in Tokyo.

Based on the manga series of the same name by Haro Aso, Alice in Borderland is a Japanese series with a twist.


Clearly, there are elements based on Alice in Wonderland, hence the name, but mostly it feels like a mash-up of several cult classics such as Battle Royale and Cube.

With two hugely successful seasons of the show, we now turn to Alice in Borderland season 3 – when will we see it on Netflix?

Alice in Borderland Season 3 Release Date On Netflix

Surprise surprise! Despite everybody thinking that it wasn't looking good for an Alice in Borderland season 3, myself included, Netflix have only gone and officially renewed it!!

To give a little perspective, two weeks after the first season was released, in December 2020, Netflix renewed the series for a second season.

Then they took their sweet time, nearly tens months in fact, before saying anything about a renewal.

Given that the show takes over a year to get to our screens from the end of filming, timing is everything so things were not looking good.

And even though the season 2 finale left so many threads hanging, essentially, the show had come full circle and ended the same way the original manga ends.

So with no more source material, a brand new story will have to be created to continue the show.

That made things a little more difficult for writer and director, Shinsuke Sato who has clearly pulled a rabbit out of the hat.

So for now, we have to wait for Alice in Borderland season 3 to go into production to get a release date. And as usual, as soon as we know – you'll know!

Alice in Borderland Season 1 Recap

In Tokyo, Arisu is hanging out with his friends Chōta and Karube when the trio cause a fight which results in them being chased by the police.

They quickly duck into a train station bathroom. And when the coast is clear they come out only to find that the city of Tokyo is empty.

By the time the nighttime comes, they notice a billboard leading them to a game arena and this is where things really heat up.

We learn that others have been similarly stranded and must compete in lethal games in order to survive.

Winning a game earns you a ‘visa’ of safety for a few days. If your visa runs out and you don’t enter a game, you are instantly and unavoidably killed. So too if you try to leave the arena without playing.

The games are coded with playing cards, with the suits denoting whether the challenge will be a game of strength, wits, team battles, or betrayal.

When our intrepid gamers service the first game, they soon find themselves stranded without electricity, internet, or a way to escape the abandoned city.

As such, they have to keep playing to extend their visas in order to stay alive. Always on the verge of death, defeating these games is nail-biting stuff that's what makes Alice in Borderland so compelling.

Now to tell you any more than this is an epic survival series (think Squid Game), would spoil the fun. Suffice to say that the ending did leave us all hanging.

Alice in Borderland Season 2 Recap

In Season 2 the stakes are even higher as the characters must navigate a deadly new phase led by the menacing King of Spades.

Arisu, Usagi, Kuina, and Tatta form an alliance and take on another face-card challenge: the King of Clubs.

In this tense game called “Osmosis,” teams collect points while avoiding deadly encounters, only for them to realise that the game's host, Kyuma, and his team are fearlessly willing to die for a win.

Meanwhile, separate plot lines emerge as Chishiya plays the Jack of Hearts game, a deadly card-guessing challenge, in a prison setting.

We also meet Heiya, a resilient survivor of a gruesome game, who joins forces with Arisu and Aguni to take down the King of Spades.

Arisu becomes increasingly skeptical about the possibility of ever returning to the real world.

And just when viewers think the characters have gained some breathing room, they are plunged into yet more intense challenges.

Allies fall, sacrifices are made, and strategies are torn apart, culminating in a high-stakes battle involving an elaborate trap set up by Arisu and Aguni.

With their friends injured and the clock ticking, Arisu and Usagi make their way to the final showdown against the enigmatic Queen of Hearts in a psychological game of Croquet.

Alice in Borderland Season 3 – What Could Happen?

We were all delighted at the end of season two when we really thought that some of the players had finally made their way back into the real world.

They discover they are survivors of a meteorite crash in Tokyo. Devoid of memories from the alternate world Arisu and Usagi meet by a vending machine in what seems like a fresh start.

But then the camera pans to a table of playing cards, highlighting the joker card. So has the game really ended?

As mentioned above, there is scope to continue the story and enough threads to keep us on the edge of our seats again.

We know season three is coming but as of yet no plot has been revealed but we'll keep our eyes pealed for any snippets and secrets that come our way.
