Following the success of Lupin, which was the first French series to debut on Netflix’s top 10 and currently occupies the top spot in over 10 countries, Part 2 has been confirmed to be in development.
Part 1 of Lupin consisted of 5 episodes which are available to watch currently. Part 2 will complete season 1 with the remaining 5 episodes.
Lupin features Omar Sy as Assane Diop, who is on a mission to avenge his father. His father died in prison after being framed by Diop’s boss, Hubert Pellegrini (played by Hervé Pierre), for the theft of a diamond necklace. Decades after his father’s death, Diop is inspired by Maurice Leblanc’s classic novels to become a master of disguise and trickery like Leblanc’s character Arsène Lupin — to expose the Pellegrini family’s own crimes.
Part 2 is set to continue off where the first 5 episodes left, with Netflix stating that all 10 episodes being filmed at the same time. This means the original cast who were present at the end of the fifth episode will still be present.
