Interestingly, Alice in Borderland actually started trending as people compared the new Netflix show Squid Game to the Japanese series. Many have pointed out that the premise of the South Korean thriller is a lot like Alice but instead of freedom and survival, the characters are competing for money.

Squid Game follows a group of people competing in a game where the winner gets to take home KRW45.6 billion (approximately US$38.5 million). The contestants compete in traditional children's games with a deadly twist and only one of them will emerge as the winner.

Sure, it sounds like Battle Royale all over again and that's why we're getting comparisons to Alice in Borderland. The truth is, Squid Game is fairly different from Alice but the shows have one thing in common: They make the viewers consider their own decisions if they were put in the same situation.

For now, there haven't been any updates on Alice in Borderland Season 2. While we're waiting, check out Squid Game, which is now streaming on Netflix.
