Netflix announced today that Alice in Borderland has been renewed for a third season. Coming nine months after the release of its sophomore run, the news confirms that Kento Yamazaki and Tao Tsuchiya will be back to reprise their roles in the next chapter of the dystopian thriller.

The series premiered in 2020, reaching the streamer's Top 10 list in over 70 countries while garnering positive reviews from critics and viewers alike. Season 2 released last December and made it into the Top 10 in over 90 countries, clocking 200 million viewing hours worldwide within four weeks of its debut, the highest of any title from Japan.

Based on the Japanese manga series of the same name by Haro Aso, Alice in Borderland follows an aimless gamer and two of his friends who find themselves in a parallel Tokyo, where they must compete in a series of sadistic games in order to survive. The games are divided into four categories represented by suits on a deck of playing cards.
