Great Pretender Season 2
Was Great Pretender cancelled or renewed for season 2? When does it start on Netflix? Who will be returning for the new season? In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the next season.
What Is Great Pretender About?
Great Pretender follows Makoto Edamura, a former straight-arrow turned con man who fancies himself as “Japan’s greatest swindler.” His low-level grifts soon catch the attention of the enigmatic, charismatic, and incorrigible gentleman thief Laurent Thierry who quickly takes a shine to the young Edamura. Their fates are quickly intertwined as Edamura is unwittingly coaxed into Thierry’s crew in their ongoing campaign to ingratiate themselves into the lives of the rich and infamous before taking them for all they’re worth. Aided by Laurent’s longtime associates Abby and Cynthia, Edamura grows as both a thief and as a person as he embarks on a whirlwind tour of international theft and fortune to ensnare the criminal elite.
Though Great Pretender might be Kosawa’s first time at bat when it comes to writing the scenario for an anime production, he’s anything but a rookie when it comes to the fine art of crafting a tight, serialized crime narrative. Known for his work on such live-action shows as AIBOU: Tokyo Detective Duo, Legal High, and last year’s The Confidence Man, Kosawa’s an old hand when it comes to guileful protagonists and sleight-of-hand storytelling. Each of the three arcs throughout the initial 14 episodes of the series released on Netflix is divided into three “cases,” each devoted to the con of one unscrupulous target or another in an exotic location. From the seething underbelly of Los Angeles to the verdant futurism of Singapore to the architectural beauty of London, Great Pretender is a show that knows that half of the appeal of watching someone pull off the perfect heist is watching them do it in a beautiful locale.
