What happens in Alice in Borderland season 2?

Alice in Borderland season 2 picks up where season 1’s shock ending left off. Arisu, Usagi, Chishiya and Kuina, along with the other survivors of the first round of games, have now been thrown head-first into the next battle to collect the face cards that were revealed in the final scene of season 1.

The trailer for season 2 shows the survivors wandering around an overgrown Tokyo, with new characters and brand new deadly games being played out. There’s an endurance game involving hanging from a rope suspended in the air (if you fall, you get struck by the laser), there’s a game of agility that looks like a futuristic yet deadly game of dodgeball, and of course, there’s plenty of games involving guns that Arisu and Usagi find themselves smack bang in the middle of.

We’ll have to wait and see who makes it out alive when season 2 is released on Thursday.

Which characters are returning for Alice in Borderland season 2?

If you’ve already seen the trailers for the show, then the returning characters will be no surprise to you.

Arisu (Kento Yamazaki), Usagi (Tao Tsuchiya), Chishiya (Nijiro Murakami) and Kuina (Aya Asahina) will return, alongside Aguni (Sho Aoyagi), Niragi (Dori Sakurada) and Ann (Ayaka Miyoshi).

Mira (Riisa Naka) is also set to return after it was revealed she was one of the key figureheads behind the games in the Borderlands. Those who have read the original Manga will know exactly who she is, and if you haven’t figured it out from the trailer just yet… You’re in for a wild ride.
