Alice In Borderland will make its worldwide premiere on Netflix on December 10. Featuring eight episodes, the series is directed by Shinsuke Sato, who has helmed other live-adaptation films such as 2018’s Bleach and 2015’s I Am A Hero.
The adaptation of Alice In Borderland and its cast were first announced by Netflix last year. Yamazaki and Tsuchiya are joined by actors Nijiro Murakami, Keita Machida, Ayaka Miyoshi and more.
The suspense manga was written and illustrated by Haro Aso, and is a loose dystopian take on Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland. The original manga ran from November 2010 until March 2016. It also received several spinoff series, including Alice In Borderland: Chi No Kyokuchi – Daiya No King-hen and Alice On Border Road.
In 2014, Alice In Borderland was adapted into a three-episode original video animation (OVA) directed by Hideki Tachibana.
