For Netflix fans who enjoyed the first part of Lupin, you can look forward to more episodes.
The streamer made it official that Part 2 is coming this summer and will feature 5 new episodes.
The series, a worldwide phenomenon, led by Omar Sy became a hit securing spot number 1 on Netflix’s Top 10 across more than ten countries. The 5 new episodes are directed by Ludovic Bernard (The Climb) and Hugo Gélin (Love at second sight).
The series follows Assane Diop (Omar Sy) and his father Babakar (Fargass Assandé) who move from Senegal to Paris, where Babakar has a job working for a wealthy family as their chauffeur and butler. When Babakar is accused of stealing a priceless necklace that was once owned by Marie Antoinette from the family safe, he’s thrown in prison, where soon after, he dies, leaving Assane, 14, an orphan.
Years later, Assane, inspired by the stories of fictional thief Arsène Lupin in the novels by French author Maurice Leblanc, has turned into a thief. Marie Antoinette’s necklace has been found returned to the family, who is now selling it at an auction hosted by the Louvre. Assane comes up with an elaborate scheme to steal it by posing as a janitor at the museum with the intent of somehow clearing his father’s name. He enlists three loan sharks, to whom he owes money, to help him.
A premiere date is yet to be confirmed.
