Alice in Borderland has been renewed for a third season, Netflix confirmed today (Thursday 28th September).


The dark Japanese sci-fi drama follows a group of young people drawn into a series of deadly games in an eerie, alternate version of Tokyo.

Based on the manga of the same name by Haro Aso, the series has been a breakout hit for the streaming service, leaving viewers impressed by its ambitious visual effects and action sequences.

We can expect more of that good stuff in season 3, with stars Kento Yamazaki and Tao Tsuchiya confirmed to be returning as Arisu and Usagi respectively, while Shinsuke Sato will be back in the director's chair (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Read on for everything we know so far about Alice in Borderland season 3 on Netflix.

Will there be a third season of Alice in Borderland?

Yes! Alice in Borderland season 3 has been confirmed by Netflix.

The streaming service broke the news with a short teaser video on X (formerly Twitter), which tells fans: "You may draw another card. Alice in Borderland will return for season 3!"

The news came later than many had hoped or expected, with fans having to endure a nine-month wait for word on the fate of the series. You can check out the teaser trailer further down this page.

Alice in Borderland might be a great show, but it isn't particularly speedy at delivering new episodes. There was a two-year break between seasons 1 and 2, with a similar wait seeming plausible for the next chapter.

Given that Alice in Borderland season 3 wasn't confirmed until September 2023, it seems unlikely we'll see new episodes until next year, suggesting the show could be returning to its Christmas release window in 2024.

We'll keep this page updated as and when any further information becomes available.
