Alice in Borderland Season 3 is officially in production, with the director Shinsuke Sato and main stars Kento Yamazaki and Tao Tsuchiya all returning. The announcement comes shortly after Netflix teased the 3rd season with a cryptic message, and a visual featuring the Joker card has been released.
The message from Shinsuke Sato, the director:
Season 3 begins. A new journey that no one knows about wills tart. More games. More players. Who exactly is the enemy? Who will survive? An unknown journey where no one knows the answer. Please look forward to it.
The Alice in Borderland live-action co-stars Kento Yamazaki and Tao Tsuchiya will reprise their roles as Ryuhei Arisu and Yuzuha Usagi, respectively. The second season also had Tomohisa Yamashita as “King of Clubs” Kyuma, Yuri Tsunematsu as Heiya, Hayato Isomura as Banda, Kai Inowaki as Matsushita, Katsuya Maiguma as Yaba and Honami Sato as Kotoko. Netflix streams the show, and they describe the story:
Arisu and Usagi must unravel the mysteries of the Borderland in order to return to their world. Shifting from the shocking setting of an empty Shibuya in the first season, this season is set in a devastated Shibuya covered in plants. Don’t miss a second of this survival game packed with intense action and a thrilling story!
What Might Alice in Borderland Season 3 Cover?
The original Alice in Borderland manga by Haro Aso ran from November 2010 to March 2016, and it ended with 64 chapters over 18 compilation volumes. The first season of the live-action covered around 31 chapters in 8 episodes, while the second covered the rest of the main story (making some changes, such as excluding some games, not showing Joker and instead teasing him as a card, etc.). However, there was a direct sequel to the manga by the author titled Alice in Borderland Retry, where the protagonist Ryohei Arisu finds himself in Borderland again and has to go through more deadly games. It was compiled in two volumes.
There was another spin-off manga Alice in Border Road featuring different characters and not so many games, so it’s likely that’d be called a third season. There’s also a chance of it being an original, so stay tuned for future updates!
