One of Netflix’s most popular animated series of 2020, Great Pretender has yet to receive a renewal for a third season. There is some hope that the animated series will return in the future, especially if series director Hiro Kaburagi has his way.
Good pretender is an internationally licensed Netlfix Original crime comedy anime written by Ryōta Kosawa and directed by Hiro Kaburagi. The series was produced by WIT Studio and aired on Fuji TV in Japan. The series was easily one of the most visually striking anime of 2020, using an explosive amount of color that wows audiences around the world.
Professional and supposedly best con artist in Japan, Edamura Masato and his partner in crime Kudo attempted to cheat on a Frenchman in Asakusa, only to be cheated in return. Turning out to be Laurent Thierry, one of the best crooks in the world and leader of the mafia. The fate of Edamura is now in the hands of Laurent Thierry while the young man engages in the dirty jobs of the French.
Good pretender Netflix Season 3 Renewal Status
Netflix Official Renewal Status: Pending (Last Updated: 04/08/2021)
Despite the release of the second season several months ago, there is no indication that Netflix has renewed Good pretender for a third season.
Interestingly, series director Hiro Kaburagi has shown interest in developing a new season for the anime. In one interview with anime news network, Kaburagi had the following to say about the series;
I am delighted that this work has received so much support in Japan and abroad. As I stream this anime online to viewers around the world, I am extremely happy to have been able to see the reactions of all the fans. As a representative of the general staff, I thank you all. Thank you so much! Also, if circumstances permit, I can’t wait to see an even better new anime for all of you!
Oh, and if you want to see a GP sequel, be sure to tell your friends and acquaintances about it, so you can increase the number of viewers on Netflix!
Now, let’s meet again one day!
At the very least, interest and support comes from both the global fan base and the staff at WIT Studio. All Netflix needs to do now is pull the trigger.
Does the story need a third season?
With a series like Good pretender, there are always more adventures to be had, not to mention that the end of the anime left the story on a small cliffhanger.
When is the Good pretender season 3 Netflix release date?
As Netflix has yet to renew the series, any release date for the third season is purely speculative.
It takes a long period of time to produce an animated series, so unless WIT Studio is already working hard on the anime, fans could wait until 2022 for next season.
Unfortunately the manga has been suspended due to ill health of illustrator Daichi Marui. But since the manga is an adaptation of the anime, and not the other way around, plans for a future anime should not be influenced by the status of the manga.
