Release date for  Great Pretender Season three

The premiere date for season third of The Great Pretender is not known as of April, 2022. That said, we could make an educated guess about when it would arrive on the streaming platform. If the creators are quick to give it the go-ahead, we could see its future cases/episodes until the last quarter of 2022. But this is pure speculation, and nothing can be said with surety at this moment.

While The Great Pretender season three remains a mystery, we have plenty of time to revisit its previous seasons. International viewers may find all the parts on Netflix and enjoy the crime drama for nominal subscription fees.  Be careful to not look for the anime on Funimation and Crunchyroll as it is not available on these platforms.

The plotline of  Great Pretender Season three

Typically, animes draw out material content from manga series. However, it is not the case with The Great Pretender because the manga itself is based on anime. With that, it is still possible for The Great Pretender’s storyline to go in multiple directions. Web anime consists of story arcs that focus on one character at a time. The four-story arcs have introduced the audiences to Makoto Edamura, an accidental swindler, Laurent Thierry, a Frenchman who works as a gentleman thief, Abigail Jones, Laurent’s assistant, and Cynthia Moore as  Laurent’s connection. Edamura joins Laurent in his pursuits after the former tries to swindle him. The new partner’s plot against a film mogul, and a drug mafia. Overall, the anime includes interesting con stories, and characters. If a season three happens, fans could see more bluffs, frauds, and adventures on the way. 

On a hopeful note, Hiro Kaburagi has shown his interest in getting another chapter to The Great Pretender. In an interviewer, the director told that he is grateful for the support of the viewers worldwide. He added that seeing the overwhelming reactions of the fans was a satisfying experience for him.
