Fans of French crime drama Lupin have been eagerly awaiting Part 2 since the very first part’s dramatic cliffhanger.
And with the next installment” coming soon”, Netflix has shared with an exciting teaser trailer to its upcoming episodes, starring Omar Sy as under-estimated gentleman burglar Assane Diop, who took inspiration from your Arsène Lupin novels when seeking revenge for his father’s death.
The show’s first five episodes followed Assane as he set out to expose the crimes of Hubert Pelligrini, his dad’s employer who framed him for the theft of an expensive diamond necklace. But in Part 1’s last incident, we watched as the Pelligrini family began to retaliate.
With lots of questions to answer in Section two, here’s what we know up to now about the upcoming episodes of Lupin and when they’re most likely to get there on Netflix.
Lupin part 2 release date
There were five episodes in part one of Lupin and there will be five in the next.
Netflix just announced Lupin part 2 is going to be released in the summer of 2021.
This means the show’s cast will return.
Odds are, Omar Sy–that rose to fame from the French movie Les Intouchables–is your new obsession, thanks to Lupin. He’s not the only great actor in the show, though. Ludivine Sagnier (The New Pope) plays Assane’s wife, Claire. Etan Simon is their 14-year-old son, Raoul.
The exterior of this Diop household unit is Hervé Pierre (de la Comédie Française) as the powerful Pellegrini patriarch, who framed Assane’s father for a crime he didn’t commit. Clotilde Hesme is Juliette Pellegrini, Assane’s childhood friend, and former lover. Nicole Garcia is your Pellegrini mother, Anne. Ultimately, Antoine Gouy, Shirine Boutella, and Soufiane Guerrab are investigators trying to capture Assane.
Lupin part 2 synopsis
The new Netflix series is loosely based on a character called Arsène Lupin, a suave thief made by Maurice Leblanc. Drawing inspiration from that character, Lupin stars Omar Sy as Assane Diop, a skilled pickpocket. As a young man, Diop was orphaned after his dad was framed by the rich Hubert Pellegrini (Hervé Pierre) for a crime he did not commit. Over two decades later, Diop promises to use his abilities to seek revenge on Pellegrini for inducing his father’s passing.
Part one concluded with Raoul (Etan Simon) being contested, so fans can expect to find that storyline continue.
