Netflix has confirmed part 3 of the French series ‘Lupin,’ which is a major hit on the streaming platform. The announcement came from the series leading star Omar Sy which is now officially confirmed by Netflix.
Netflix has also revealed the premiere date and first trailer (watch above) for ‘Lupin’ part 2. The highly-anticipated five-episode Part 2 will arrive on June 11 on Netflix, globally.
The trailer picks up after Part 1’s cliffhanger finale and sees Omar Sy’s Assane Diop having become “the most wanted man in France.”

Omar Sy stars as Diop, who uses the world-famous gentleman thief and master of disguise, Arsène Lupin, as his inspiration. Diop’s quest for revenge against Hubert Pelligrini (Hervé Pierre) has torn his family to pieces, and now with his back to the wall, he must come up with a new plan, even if it means putting himself in danger.
Lupin Part 1 was a big hit for Netflix and was projected to be watched by 70 million households in its first month. Sy told in an interview in March that he had been blown away by the global success. “This level of response is totally beyond me, It’s great to see in Brazil or in France they loved Lupin for the same reason. There’s something universal and that’s something I always try to achieve.”
The French original from Gaumont Télévision is created by George Kay (Criminal UK, Killing Eve) in collaboration with François Uzan (Family Business) and is a contemporary adaptation of the novels penned by French writer Maurice LeBlanc, who created the character in 1905. The books have been adapted into dozens of TV series and movies over the years, but not to this sort of worldwide recognition.
Part 2’s first two episodes are directed by Ludovic Bernard with Hugo Gélin on the following three. Nicole Garcia, Clotilde Hesme, Ludivine Sagnier, Antoine Gouy, Shirine Boutella and Soufiane Guerrab also star.
