'Lupin' Part 2 Release Date Gets Tease from Netflix!

You won’t have to wait too long for part two of the hit Netflix series Lupin!

The streaming service just announced that the remaining five episodes of the series are going to be released in summer 2020.

The first half of the season launched on Netflix on January 8 and the show is on track to become one of the biggest hits in the streamer’s history.

Normally, Netflix will make fans wait a full year for the second part of a series, but we thankfully will only be waiting around six to seven months for this one.

Lupin is about a man named Assane Diop (Omar Sy) whose life was turned upside down as a teenager when his father died after being accused of a crime he didn’t commit. 25 years later, Assane will use the classic novel “Arsène Lupin, Gentleman Burglar” as his inspiration to avenge his father.
