Great Pretender written as GREAT PRETENDER is an original Japanese crime comedy anime television series that was released in June 2020 in Japan with the first case. The series followed two broadcasting networks internationally licensed by Netflix Original. The plot was separated into 4 cases: the first three cases of this anime which is Los Angeles Connection, Singapore Sky, third one Snow of London was released globally on Netflix in August 2020 and served its fourth case Wizard of Far East on November 25, 2020. It is directed by Hiro Kaburagi, produced by Wit Studio, and written by Ryota Kurosawa.
This crime-comedy series has entertained the audience and proven to be a hidden gem and became the most visually striking anime of 2020. There are high possibilities for the next season as season one concluded with a small cliffhanger which will renew the new one. Fans are super excited for the new installment, however, there has been a lack of conversations on season 3 officially. What will be the storyline for season 3? Let’s figure out when we can have another dose and more details.
Great Pretender Season 3: When will it premiere?
Despite the high popularity of the show and the second season being released several months ago, there is no announcement on the renewal of the show for the third season. Fortunately, the director of the series Hiro Kaburagi gave hints for developing and continuing the story of this anime.
As per the reports in an interview with the anime news network, he thanked the audience for such huge support, both in Japan and overseas. He added that the team is looking for another season that would be better than the previous one. He addressed the audience with a thankful note and asked them to revive the story for another installment by providing more views on Netflix. The production of the anime series usually takes a long time, so if we get the announcement in the coming few months, we will get the drama dose somewhere in the fall of 2022.
Manga of the same name is put on hold because of the ill health of illustrator Daichi Marui. But as we know that manga is an adaption of the series, it won’t hamper the continuity of the show.
So considering all points in an account we can say that the chances for the renewal of the series are pretty high, there is a mere wait for an official stamp by the network on the renewal of the show. However these are mere probabilities, so we have to wait for the official confirmation on the same.
