Whatever Happened to the Cast From NBC’s ‘The Pretender’? Here’s What They’re Up to Now

The Pretender was an action drama television series created by Steven Long Mitchell and Craig W. Van Sickle. It aired on NBC from 1996 2000 as part of the network’s action programming block, Thrillogy.

The series was about Jarod, a man who is on the run as a “Pretender,” which is an impostor who is able to master any skill necessary to impersonate a member of any profession including a doctor or a lawyer. “Pretenders” live at The Centre, a think tank that kidnapped Jarod when he was younger to exploit his abilities.  The character was played by actor Michael T. Weiss.

After the show was canceled, TNT aired two TV movies that continued the storyline: The Pretender 2001 and The Pretender: Island of the Haunted, which were both released in 2001. In 2013, Mitchell and Sickle continued the storyline with a series of books and graphic novels.
