Lupin Half 2 has launched on Netflix, with the 5 new episodes – shot back-to-back with January’s Half 1 – showing to supply a level of decision to the sequence. However followers needn’t worry – we haven’t seen the final of Omar Sy’s Assane Diop fairly but.
Final we noticed Assane, he had lastly obtained his revenge on slippery villain Hubert Pellegrini (Hervé Pierre), holding the corrupt enterprise tycoon at knifepoint and forcing him to admit to framing Assane’s father for the theft of a priceless necklace a few years earlier than.
Our crafty hero recorded Pellegrini’s confession on his sensible watch and and with the recording within the fingers of the police, Hubert discovered himself again in custody, this time (we assume) for good.
Regardless of this, Half 3 of Lupin has already been confirmed, so the place will the sequence take Assane subsequent? And when will the crime caper return to Netflix? Right here’s every thing you must know.
Lupin Half 3 launch date
Although we don’t have a confirmed launch date fairly but for Half 3, Lupin co-creator George Kay beforehand instructed RadioTimes.com that he anticipated new episodes to launch on Netflix in 2022.
Talking in January 2021 earlier than Half 3 was formally green-lit, Kay stated: “We’re story-lining that, and I’m certain that can come. We’re actively story-lining with actual confidence that that’s gonna occur, as a result of response to the primary 5 episodes would counsel that we’ve obtained each likelihood that [Part 3] can be coming subsequent yr… until one thing goes utterly flawed!”
So all being properly, count on extra Lupin subsequent yr!
Lupin Half 3 trailer
Filming is but to c0mmence on Half 3, so it’ll be a short time but earlier than we get our first teaser. Keep tuned – we’ll replace this web page as quickly as a primary have a look at new footage emerges.
Within the meantime, you possibly can watch this behind-the-scenes featurette which gives some fascinating insights for followers on what went into producing the primary batch of 10 episodes.
The one solid member who no doubt will probably be returning to Lupin is Omar Sy (X-Males: Days of Future Previous, Jurassic World) as gentleman thief Assane Diop.
We’d additionally hope and count on to see different of the common Lupin cast members return, together with:
- Ludivine Sagnier as Claire, Assane’s ex-girlfriend and the mom of his little one
- Etan Simon as Raoul, the son of Assane and Claire.
- Antoine Gouy as Benjamin Ferel, Assane’s shut buddy from his college days
- Soufiane Guerrab as Youssef Guedira, a detective who makes use of his data of the Arsene Lupin books to hunt Assane
- Vincent Londez as Captain Romain Laugier, a police captain
- Shirine Boutella as Lieutenant Sofia Belkacem, a lieutenant detective
On condition that Half 2 appeared to wrap up the plot involving Assane in search of vengeance for his father, it’s unclear if Hervé Pierre will probably be again as Hubert Pellegrini, and the identical goes for Nicole Garcia as Hubert’s spouse Anne Pellegrini – although absolutely there’s nonetheless unfinished enterprise between Assane and Hubert and Anne’s daughter’s Juliette (Clotilde Hesme)?
It’s additionally potential we’ve seen the final of Fargass Assandé as Babakar, Assane’s late father, and Vincent Garanger as Gabriel Dumont, with the Paris police commissioner being arrested for corruption on the shut of Half 2.
If Half 3 continues to discover Assane’s previous by way of flashbacks although, there’s a very good likelihood we’ll see extra of Mamadou Haidara as younger Assane, Ludmilla Makowski as younger Claire, Adrian Valli De Villebonne as younger Benjamin and presumably Léa Bonneau as younger Juliette.
The large query, although, is whether or not we’ll be reunited with Assane’s lovely canine J’Accuse – he took again custody of the loveable pupper from Benjamin Half 2, however J’Accuse was nowhere to be seen when our hero made his escape within the ultimate episode. Fingers crossed he collected him alongside the best way…
Lupin Half 3 spoilers
Half 2, as talked about, closed with Hubert Pellegrini in cuffs, the late Babakar’s title cleared and Assane’s title additionally cleared of homicide (with Pellegrini having framed him for the killing of his henchman Leonard, performed by Adama Niane, earlier within the season).
However that doesn’t imply the story is over – the ultimate scene of Half 2 noticed Assane bid an emotional farewell to Claire and his son Raoul, with the police sizzling on his tail. (Sure, he’s been cleared of the homicide cost, however Assane remains to be a needed felony, what with all these artful heists he’s been pulling.)
Half 3, then, would doubtless decide up with Assane on the run – and presumably developing towards a brand new nemesis. Although maybe it’s unwise to rule Pellegrini out simply but – certain, the police have the recording of his confession and his inside man within the division, Dumont, has additionally been uncovered, nevertheless it’s potential he has extra connections we don’t learn about that would assist him out of this repair. It wouldn’t be the primary time he was in police custody and escaped justice, in any case…
In January, George Kay hinted that we will count on “extra conflicts and problems” in Half 3, with Omar Sy being “actually concerned” in serving to to information Assane’s path. “He’s actually energetic and actually sharp in relation to the scripts and Assane’s journey by way of these tales,” the author stated.
And, in fact, we will count on any future escapades to take additional inspiration from the Arsène Lupin books which function the supply materials for the sequence.
