Netflix to Premiere Highly Anticipated Alice in Borderland Season 2 with Yamazaki Kento and Tsuchiya Tao Returning and Special Guest Yamashita Tomohisa as the Memorable King of Clubs

I’m so freaking excited for the upcoming Alice in Borderland season 2, confirmed to air on Netflix this December 2022. It would be a two year gap (wow time flies!) between the first season which happened to air the same time as Netflix monster thriller Sweet Home and both are basically apocalyptic survival stories adapted from a source manga/webtoon. I’ve read both and watched both dramas and don’t feel the need to compare, both are great in storytelling (lean and mean) and the adaptations delivered all the thrills as a live-action. Alice is coming back for the second arc of the manga “The Face Cards” as Arisu and Usagi and co. have survived entering The Borderland and the massacre at The Beach and now head into challenges proffered by the Face Cards, as in the first season the hardest challenge was only up the 10 cards. The face cards are led by the Three Kings and One Queen (King of Spades, King of Diamonds, King of Clubs and Queen of Hearts) and their identities are less important than the ridiculously insane and fascinating challenges they bring. In particular, the King of Spades who spends the entire arc naked and runs around a shipping dock is one of the most elaborate games so bonus points to the production for getting Yamashita Tomohisa to guest star as the King of Spades. I get to see Kento and his older bro face twin Yamapi in the same drama I can’t wait!
