As a teenager, Assane Diop’s (Sy) life was turned upside down when his father died after being accused of a crime he didn’t commit. 25 years later, Assane uses “Arsène Lupin, Gentleman Burglar” as his inspiration to avenge his father.
Alongside Sy, the series stars Hervé Pierre, Nicole Garcia, Clotilde Hesme, Ludivine Sagnier, Antoine Gouy, Shirine Boutella, Soufiane Guerrab.

Part 2 of the mystery thriller will consist of 5 new episodes, directed by Ludovic Bernard (‘The Climb’) and Hugo Gélin (‘Love At Second Sight’).
The series is written by George Kay (‘Killing Eve’) in collaboration with François Uzan (‘Family Business’) and is produced by Isabelle Degeorges and Nathan Franck from Gaumont Télévision.
‘Lupin‘ Part 2 will premiere Summer 2021 on Netflix worldwide.
