7 TV Shows like Alice in Borderland you must watch
Death Note (2015)
Another Japanese live-action series based on a manga, Death Note tells the story of a young college student who finds a mysterious notebook with the power to kill anyone whose name is written in it. The series ran for one season in 2015, and it’s part of a franchise featuring several anime, movies, and manga comics.
2017’s Erased is another compelling Sci-Fi series from Japan based on popular anime. After finding his mother murdered, a young man goes back in time in an attempt to save her life. You can stream all 12 episodes on Netflix.
Switched is the less comedic cousin of Freaky Friday. In the series, two girls – one pretty and popular, the other not so much – exchange bodies. The only problem is that the less popular girl refuses to give up on her newfound beauty and social status and return to her original body.
Squid Game (2021 – )
Just like in Alice in Borderland, the characters in this series need to take part in a series of increasingly difficult games. However, Squid Game is more of a psychological thriller than Sci-Fi. The show centers on a group of characters in financial peril who take part in a series of well-known children’s games in hopes of winning a substantial amount of money. The catch? Losers pay the ultimate price.
The Uncanny Counter (2020 – 2021)
This South Korean action-packed science fiction show tells the story of a group of noodle bar workers who moonlight as demon hunters. You can binge all 16 episodes on Netflix.
Dark (2017 – 2020)
From the minds of German creators Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese, Dark is a Sci-Fi series that starts out with a kidnapping plot and turns into something else entirely. There’s time travel, complicated family relationships, and alternate realities, all packed in three very confusing seasons, all available on Netflix.
12 Monkeys (2015 – 2018)
Another series featuring high stakes and alternate realities, 12 Monkeys features a time traveler from the future and his attempts at stopping the spread of a world-ending virus. The award-winning series ran for four seasons and they’re all available on Hulu for your viewing pleasure.
