The franchise is highly popular thanks to its manga serialization in Shōnen Sunday Comics.

Official Netflix Production Status: After-Production. (Last Updated 02/09/2020).
In July 2019, the series was officially announced and filming began shortly thereafter. We know that filming commenced on August 13th, 2020 but we’re unsure when it came to an end.
We’re 13 months on, so the series will be in post-production, and marketing for Alice in Borderland shall start very soon.
Multiple seasons depends entirely on the amount of source material covered in the first episode.
Alice in Borderland was serialized in Shōnen Sunday Comics from November 2010 to March 2015, and it’s final run from April 2015 to March 2016 in Weekly Shōnen Sunday. After 18 volumes, the manga was finished with 87 chapters.
We could easily split Alice in Borderland into two seasons with 87 chapters worth of adaptable source material.
Only one season is confirmed at the moment.
The number of episodes is not yet known.
We can anticipate seeing between 6 and 10 episodes, if previous anime to manga adaptations are any indication.
You can look forward to Alice in Borderland Season 1 arriving in 4K as a Netflix Original.
You will require a premium subscription and a 4K TV to view Alice in Borderland in 4K.
