Alice in Borderland Season 2 Adds Six New Cast Members

Six new cast members will be joining the highly anticipated second season of Netflix’s hit Japanese sci-fi thriller Alice in Borderland.

Six new faces will be joining the cast of Alice in Borderland season 2. Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Haro Aso’s manga series of the same name premiered on the streaming site in 2020 with eight episodes in its first season. Alice in Borderland follows Ryōhei Arisu (Kento Yamazaki) and Yuzuha Usagi (Tao Tsuchiya), two allies trapped in an abandoned Tokyo and forced to compete in deadly games. Not long after its premiere, the series was renewed for season 2, which will introduce a new set of dangerous games.

With these new games also come a new set of cast members. Comic Natalie (via Anime News Network) reported that six actors will be joining the cast of Alice in Borderland season 2. Yuri Tsunematsu has been cast as high school student Heiya, Tomohisa Yamashita as “King of Clubs” Kyūma, Hayato Isomura as Banda, Kai Inowaki as Matsushita, Katsuya Maiguma as Yaba, and Honami Satō as Kotoko. The new Alice in Borderland cast members will join Yamazaki and Tsuchiya, who are also returning for season 2.

Although the streaming site renewed the series for a second season fairly soon after Alice in Borderland season 1’s release, fans have been awaiting the new episodes for two years due to the high quality of production. Alice in Borderland was generally well-received when it was released, and some have compared the series to Netflix’s global hit Squid Game, which also has its own highly anticipated second season on the way. Alice in Borderland season 2 premieres this December on Netflix.
