The first five episodes of Lupin arrived on Netflix on Jan. 8, 2021, and fans are already eager to see Lupin part 2! The action-comedy series revolves around a professional thief with a vendetta.
While Netflix has not revealed any viewing totals for the show, it’s reported to have been watched by an impressive 70 million households and quickly emerged as one of Netflix’s buzziest French originals.
If you’re looking for information about the next installment of Lupin, then you’ve come to the right place. Without further ado, here’s what we know so far about part two of the popular show including its release date, synopsis, cast and more!
Lupin part 2 release date
There were five episodes in part one of Lupin and there will be five in the second. Netflix originally announced part 2 would be released in the summer of 2021 and now it seems we have an official release date.
When dropping the second trailer for the upcoming batch of episodes, Netflix confirmed Lupin part 2 would be arriving on Friday, June 11! That puts part 2’s release nearly six months from the date that Lupin part 1 arrived in January 2021 and is a much more manageable wait than we anticipated — which is always a nice surprise!
Lupin part 2 cast
The series stars Omar Sy as Assane Diop. It also features Vincent Londez, Antoine Gouy, Soufiane Guerrab, Clotilde Hesme, Hervé Pierre, Shirine Boutella, Ludivine Sagnier, Etan Simon, Johann Dionnet, Vincent Garanger, Nicole Garcia, Mamadou Haidara, and Adama Niane. There hasn’t been any news about major casting changes, so I think it’s safe to assume that the main cast will be reprising their roles in part two.
Lupin part 2 synopsis
The new Netflix series is loosely based on a character named Arsène Lupin, a suave thief created 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 father was framed by the wealthy Hubert Pellegrini (Hervé Pierre) for a crime he did not commit. More than two decades later, Diop vows to use his skills to seek revenge on Pellegrini for causing his father’s death.
Part one concluded with Raoul (Etan Simon) being kidnapped, so fans can expect to see that storyline continue.
