Fans of the anime series Greater Pretender have been expecting its third season for since long. The second season dropped in September last year, continuing the adventures of Edamura. With smooth and fluid animation and an interesting plotline, the second season was completely breathtaking.
Directed by Hiro Kaburagi, the series has received a favorable response, with 8/10 IMDb Ratings. Created by Wit Studio, the crime-comedy anime series is yet to be renewed by Netflix for its season 3. For further details, the article brings to you the updated information.
Will Season 3 of Great Pretender release in 2022 or 2023?
An announcement for season 3 of Great Pretender is still pending. Fans have high hopes that the series will return back with Edamura and other supporting casts to further the story. It has been more than a year since the last season was released. Kaburagi had teased the possibility of another season during an interview with Anime News Network. He also asked fans to increase its viewership and get more people to watch it.
Since none of the affiliated companies involved in series production have put forth a word of the release of season 3, we can expect it to drop by 2022. But, all of it depends on the renewal status of the show. Some tumors suggest that WIT Studio has received “financial incentives” for moving ahead with another season.
How Many Episodes will Season 3 of Great Pretender Include?
The anime series, Great Pretender has not been following a pattern for the inclusion of a particular number of episodes. It has varied across the two seasons. To date, it has 23 episodes altogether. The first season has 14 episodes, which had run from June 2, 2020, to June 16, 2020. Season 2 however had a lesser episodes count, and all the episodes were dropped on September 21, 2020.
Given that both the seasons were dropped in a shorter time gap, it is likely once the third season is greenlit, it may not take long to release. However, as of now, nothing is certain. And, season 3 of Great Pretender can have anywhere between six to 12 episodes.
