'Lupin' Becomes First French Series to Debut on Netflix's Top Ten List

Netflix‘s new series Lupin is the first French series to land on the streamer’s U.S. Top 10 list!

Per Deadline, the show was released on Friday (January 8) and initially entered the U.S. list at No. 6 on Saturday (January 9), jumping to the No. 3 position on Sunday (January 10). Lupin stars Omar Sy as Assane Diop, who models his career after the world famous gentleman thief and master of disguise, Arsène Lupin.

Assane‘s life is changed as a teenager when his father tragically dies after being accused of a crime he didn’t commit. He vows to avenge his father and exact revenge on the family who led to his death. The series is a contemporary adaptation of the novels by Maurice LeBlanc, who launched the character in 1905, and is created by Killing Eve‘s George Kay in collaboration with François Uzan.
