Alice in Borderland season 3 potential release date, cast, plot, trailer and everything you need to know


Alice in Borderland season two spoilers follow.

Just when Arisu (Kento Yamazaki) and his comrades thought they were home clear and free, the gamemaster drew a doozy of a card from the stack: the Joker.

If we’re really honest, we always knew this was coming. From the minute of the arrival of the face card, it was inconceivable that the Joker would not appear.

So what now for the battered gamers who thought they had finally made it back to the ‘real world’ (poor hopeful saps)?

Fans will have to wait for season three to find out – but will there be one? Here’s everything we know about Alice in Borderland season three.

While there have been rumours about season three being in the works, there has been no official line just yet as to whether or not Alice in Borderland has been picked up for another season. Naturally we remain hopeful because there is a lot more story left to unpack.

Fans had to patiently wait just over two years for season two to follow the first, with both seasons receiving a December release date. However, that does not necessarily mean we should mark our calendars for Christmas 2024.

The pandemic did slow production of season two down, contributing to the two-year wait which means it’s highly possible season three could hit the streaming service as early as December 2023.

Sure we’re playing fast and loose with the term early, as a year is still a long time but if you want that stunning production value it’s best not to rush these things.

There were a couple of surprise visitors who we thought had died in season one, only for them to pop up in season two: Niragi (Dori Sakurada) and Aguni (Shô Aoyagi). Though thoroughly battered (Niragi more so), they made it out of season two so we expect to see them in season three.

The same cannot be said for Tatta. Considering he was buried part-way through the season we’re pretty sure Yutaro Watanabe’s character will not be rising from the dead.

Arisu and Usagi (Tao Tsuchiya) have survived explosions, stab wounds and various other life-or-death scraps just to join us for another season of presumably more. We can’t wait!

Also dragging themselves across the finish line were Aya Asahina, Nijirô Murakami and Ayaka Miyoshi’s characters Kuina, Chishiya and Ann respectively so we expect the former to reprise their roles.

Newcomer Yuri Tsunematsu made a great addition to the cast as Heiya and since she didn’t end up on the chopping block there’s no reason we shouldn’t see her again.

We fear Arisu and co are in for a big shock next season. Despite entering what they believed to be ‘the real world’ in the season’s finale, the reveal of the joker card suggests they are anywhere but.

It could be that all the contestants are in a virtual reality environment, much like the one Arisu found himself in the final episode. In that delusion, Arisu was tricked into believing that he was hospitalised and that these series of games were a fabrication of the mind.

Thankfully, with the help of Usagi, he clawed his way free from that mental trap but it’s possible they all could have slipped into another when they gave up the chance to become residents of the game.

In doing so, it’s likely that a new game has already started unknown to them all and they’ll have to break free. That will prove pretty difficult for the team who have no memory of the games or their relationships with one another.

The cards have increased in difficulty, intensity and severity as the gamers transcended to the face cards level, which means the Joker now has the potential to be the cruellest of them all.

If it adopts the characteristics of its name ‘joker,’ there could be a series of sinister tricks and manipulations in store for Arisu’s battered gang as they continue to be puppeteered by the gamemasters.

Speaking of the gamemasters, Arisu and co’s successes meant the death of the existing face-card gamemasters, which were revealed to have been former gamers who became ‘citizens’.

After winning the last face-card game the players were given the opportunity to become citizens or decline the offer and take their chances with whatever fate threw their way (their pseudo-reality as it turned out).

While many turned down the chance to remain in the game under less precarious circumstances, new characters Banda (Hayato Isomura) and Yaba (Katsuya Maiguma) chose to become residents, which means they could be season three’s new gamemasters.

We won’t make you battle your way through a series of games to find out the answer but sadly we have no good news for you on this front. It will be quite some time before the season three trailer drops but as soon as it does we’ll be the first to update you.

Alice in Borderland season one and two are available to stream now on Netflix.
