Alice in Borderland Season 2 Plot: What to Expect
According to Netflix, Arisu (Kento Yamazaki) and Usagi (Tao Tsuchiya) are stuck in Borderland, a world between life and death, in the Japanese sci-fi thriller. If they want to stay alive, they have to play and win a series of games to get numbered cards, which are the key to going back to their own world. Those who lose, on the other hand, die.
In the first season, we meet Usagi’s friends, the people who are against them, and the person who is running the game. The 10 players who won games at the end of Season 1 will be back for Season 2, but the question is what they will face this time. Yamazaki says that things will only get bigger and better from here on out.
“Every day, we had these really big scenes, and the show’s world is bigger than ever,” he told Netflix. “Each shot has big set pieces, like explosions,” Tsuchiya said. In those real-life scenes, I was able to feel what my character, Usagi, felt. I learned something new every single day. I thought it was a very fun time.”
