The second season of Alice in Borderland premieres on December 22! We feel obligated to reveal the cast members whose performances you can expect to enjoy while you marathon the entire season. Keep reading to learn more about the returning cast members of Alice in Borderland Season 2.
In the period since we last saw Arisu, Usagi, and the others, they have been stuck in a parallel Tokyo, where they must compete in a series of more dangerous games in order to earn numbered playing cards. To return to the actual world, one must acquire all the numbered cards, or so the legend goes.
Unfortunately, even after Arisu and company gathered all of the numbered cards, they were still trapped in the alternate Tokyo at the end of the first season.
It was announced in the season 1 finale’s shocking twist that the remaining characters would have to participate in further games. Getting the complete set of numbered cards was only the first step. The next step is a struggle for control of all face cards. After competing in the new games and acquiring all face cards, would the players be able to leave the parallel dimension? Perhaps season 2 of Alice in Borderland will reveal all.
The question is, who will actually be appearing in Season 2? See below for the full list of actors and actresses.
How well did the Netflix show Alice in Borderland do?
According to Netflix, there were 18 million households that watched at least one episode of the first season during the first 28 days it was available.
Furthermore, according to top 10 tracking statistics provided by FlixPatrol, the series was successful in nations such as Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Japan, and Hong Kong. The series visited most regions outside of Asia for multiple days, including Canada, where it was broadcast for four days.
However, the United States did not get the Alice in Borderland feature.
What should we remember from Season 1 of “Alice in Borderland”?
If you missed some of Season 1, here’s a quick recap: The game at the heart of Alice in Borderland is categorized by playing cards, with each card’s suit representing a round’s style (clubs are team games, spades are strength, diamonds are wits, and hearts are psychological) and each card’s number representing the round’s difficulty. After losing his friends in a game of Hearts, Arisu helps Usagi solve the game and collect all of the cards.
This leads them to a hotel full of other players, where they discover that everyone has collected all the numbered cards except for the Ten of Hearts.
Most of the remaining players die in that last round, but Arisu and Usagi make it out alive. They find a room underground where the people they thought were the “gamemasters” are dead. At the end of the season, they meet a woman named Mira Kano (Riisa Naka) who tells them that the games are just getting started and that now the face cards are at stake.
From what the trailer shows, Season 2 will focus on the face card rounds and the end of the game. In one scene, Mira says, “Welcome to the final game venue.” Also, if you know the manga, Season 1 covered the first 31 chapters, so Season 2 will cover the next 33.
