We’d say it in short that the last year and a half hasn’t been the easiest of times for fans of blockbuster fantasy shows only found on Netflix, and many are wondering if there’s any point in getting too carried away with the recent return of Alice in the Borderland for a second set of episodes.
While the dystopian sci-fi thriller based on the popular manga of the same name garnered rave reviews from critics and garnered solid viewership on the platform, history has shown on far too many occasions that it means absolutely nothing if the ax is always hanging steeply over every single amazing original, ready to drop at any moment.
If the highest-rated television series in the history of the streaming service’s entire existence is unceremoniously tossed into the scrap heap, then nothing is certain, but Alice in the Borderland made a strong case to prove himself as an exception to the rule by landing a renewal right out of goal thanks to his impressive performance.
According to FlixPatrol, the second adventure of Kento Yamazaki’s Ryōhei Arisu and Tao Tsuchiya’s Yuzuha Usagi immediately earned a place in the top 10 in powerful 87 nations around the globe, although one possible concern is that it only landed at number one in five of them.
That could all change, in fairness, but it’s been repeatedly drummed into the subscriber base that there’s no point in having a glimmer of hope for a fantasy-based Netflix Original, so cautious optimism would be the sentiment of choice to avoid disappointment.
