If you've already finished your Lupin binge, we have good news and bad news. The good: More episodes of the show are on the way. The bad: You'll have to wait until the summer to watch them.
Netflix announced in January that its popular new series Lupin will return for a second installment—with its final five episodes—this summer. We don't know what's in store yet for the French heist thriller, but director Marcela Said teased that there will be "a lot of action, for sure. And emotion."
Set in Paris, Lupin is loosely based on the French literary hero Arsène Lupin, a dapper burglar (think James Bond meets Robin Hood) created by Maurice Leblanc in 1905. Though the exact fictional character doesn't appear in the Netflix series, he is there in spirit. Lupin is the inspiration for protagonist Assane Diop, played by Omar Sy, on his quest to avenge his late father, who died 25 years earlier after being accused of a crime he didn't commit.
There's a teaser trailer now.
Netflix shared a first look at the upcoming episodes with an explosive teaser trailer. The synopsis in the caption teases, "Assane's quest for revenge against Hubert Pellegrini has torn his family to pieces. With his back to the wall, he now has to think of a new plan, even if it means putting himself in danger."
The cast will return.
Along with Sy, the Lupin Part 2 cast will include Hervé Pierre (Hubert Pellegrini), Nicole Garcia (Anne Pellegrini), Clotilde Hesme (Juliette Pellegrini), Ludivine Sagnier (Claire), Antoine Gouy (Benjamin Ferel), Shirine Boutella (Lieutenant Sofia Belkacem), and Soufiane Guerrab (Youssef Guedira), Netflix confirms.
The series was created by George Kay and François Uzan, and Sy, who has appeared in X-Men: Days of Future Past and Jurassic World, is also credited as an artistic producer, per The New York Times.
The release date is still unknown.
However, the first half of Lupin premiered on January 8 and debuted on Netflix's Top 10, becoming the first French series to do so, per the Times. It quickly became a favorite and was estimated to reach upward of 70 million households in its first four weeks, according to TV Line. Compare that to the estimated 83 million who watched Bridgerton, now Netflix's most-watched original series ever.
