After a six-month wait, the French-language detective series, Lupin, based on the novel series of the same name, is back on Netflix with Part 2. The five-episode drop technically represents the second half of the first season, though it feels like five-episode second season. However, what’s next for Lupin—call it “Part 3” or “Season 3” or “Season 2 Part 1”—is all we really care about. Is it happening? When is it happening? Nous devons savoir!

Parts 1 and 2 of the series laid the groundwork for much of its principal character, Lupin—civilian name “Assane Diop” (played by Omar Sy). The series mostly involved Diop’s relationship with his partner, his son, and, most importantly, his late father, whose name Diop spends most of the series trying to clear for the theft of one family’s necklace. That family, Pellegrini, become the season’s primary antagonists, and the narrative builds toward their downfall.

But now that this storyline has pretty much wrapped, what’s next? Was this a one-off series, or does Netflix has plans for something bigger?

Are we getting a season 3 or part 3 of Lupin?

The signs are looking good. Responding to a French journalist who tweeted what he believed to be a confirmation of season 3, Lupin actor Omar Sy confirmed the rumor, tweeting in response, “We can’t hide anything from you. Lupin part 3 is confirmed!”

Whether or not the season has started filming yet has still not been reported. But it seems like another 5-episode drop will be coming to Netflix in the future.

What will Season 3 of Lupin be about?

Part 2 left Lupin on the run from French authorities. Though he had managed to clear his father’s name and provide evidence leading to the arrest of Pellegrini, Lupin is still guilty of theft—having stolen both the necklace as well as, we’re led to believe, many past items.

Future seasons will likely find Lupin evading authorities, brought back into the fray only by something bigger. What might bring Lupin back? Another adversary, of course. Will we meet Lupin’s Moriarty? Or, since Lupin is the thief, will we be meeting his Sherlock?
