Lupin, the French mystery thriller starring Omar Sy as Assane Diop, is set to make its comeback to Netflix this summer for its second half of season one.
Since the show’s debut in January, Lupin has become a major hit with 80 million streams worldwide, making it the first French Netflix original to be included in Netflix’s top ten list.
Lupin taps into the accolades of Assane Diop (Omar Sy), who follows into the footsteps of the “gentleman burglar” Arsène Lupin (a fictional French character first introduced in 1905). Assane sees Arsène Lupin as an inspiration for his quest to vindicate his dad for a theft he didn’t commit.
The series’ first five episodes followed Assane Diop as he goes on to expose Hubert Pelligrini, a wealthy French businessman, for his crimes and wrongdoings. Things start to get interesting as the Pelligrini family uncovers the identity of their old nemesis.
Sy is someone who charms his way into making his victims trusting him and robs them blind.
After the shocking double cliffhanger following the fifth episode, the audience has been sitting tight for few months to know how the series will progress while answering questions such as where’s Assane’s son or will Assane be able to avenge the death of his father and Fabienne Beriot played by Anne Benoît.
When is Lupin Part 2 Returning to Netflix?
Netflix has confirmed the Lupin part 2 will be made available on 11th June 2021.
Ludovic Bernard has joined hands with Hugo Gélin for directing the new five episodes.
