The first season heavily featured the famous Shibuya crossing in its locations suggesting that the show could recreate other popular destinations of Tokyo for the series. Alice in Borderland Season 1 also covered the first half of the manga so its unknown if season 2 will cover the back half of the manga or just part of it.Its always interesting to find what explodes in popularity and what doesnt Alice in Borderland has a robust passionate fanbase but it simply wasnt the cultural touchstone that Squid Game was when it came out nine months later.
