After the show premiered to eager audiences in December 2020, Netflix confirmed in January 2021 that the hit series would have a second season.

The show centres around a listless, unemployed and obsessed gamer named Ryohei Arisu, who somehow got transported to a parallel dimension called the Borderlands, which looks like an eerie, emptied-out version of Tokyo.

He was then forced to take part in a series of sadistic games to survive.

Season 2 sees six new cast members.

Popular actor Tomohisa Yamashita portrays the role of Ginji Kyuma.

His character is a nudist who worked as a musician before being transported to the dystopian ghost town.
