Fans of the anime series Greater Pretender have been expecting its third season for since long. The second season dropped in September 2020, continuing the adventures of Edamura. The second season was completely breathtaking with smooth and fluid animation and an interesting plotline.
Directed by Hiro Kaburagi, the series has received a favorable response, with 7.9/10 IMDb Ratings. Created by Wit Studio, the crime-comedy anime series is yet to be renewed by Netflix for a season 3. For further details, the article brings you updated information.
Will Season 3 of Great Pretender be released in 2023?
An announcement for season 3 of Great Pretender is still pending. Fans have high hopes that the series will return in late 2023 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. Netflix has not renewed the season for Great Pretender Season 3.
But all of it depends on the renewal status of the show. Some rumors 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 followed a pattern for including a particular number of episodes. Instead, it has varied across the two seasons. To date, it has 23 episodes altogether. The first season has 14 episodes, from June 2, 2020, to June 16, 2020. Season 2, however, had a lesser episode 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.
Plot Details of Season 3
The culmination of season 2 of Great Pretender hints at the possibility of a bigger heist. And, among characters in the series, a more intense drama may ensue. Eddie Cassano is now the new US President, and Laurent is successful in enrolling himself as one of Eddie’s bodyguards.
