When will 'Lupin' Part 2 return? Here's when you can expect to see remaining 5 episodes of show's first season
Spoilers for 'Lupin' Part 1
Netflix is finding new ways to keep a generation of binge-watchers on their toes. The critically acclaimed 'Lupin' debuted on the streaming platform on January 8, 2021, and its first season was meant to contain a full ten episodes. Netflix, however, only released the first five, calling it 'Part 1,' and ended its initial five episodes on one hell of a cliffhanger. So when will Part 2 of the series return to resolve the story, and what can we expect to see when it does?
While the wait between Netflix seasons is usually about a year-long, the practice is a little different when it comes to splitting up seasons like it has with 'Lupin'. One example is Netflix's 'Unsolved Mysteries', a series that was also split up into two parts. Part 2 of 'Unsolved Mysteries' released only three months after the first — and if 'Lupin' follows the same track, you can expect to see the show making its return in April.
That's a long time to wait for some fans, especially given how Part 1 ended — with Assane Diop's (Omar Sy) son kidnapped by a henchman working for his greatest enemy, Hubert Pellegrini (Hervé Pierre), right when Youssef Guedira (Soufiane Guerrab) manages to track Assane down. Guedira may be the biggest thorn in Assane's side as far as law enforcement goes, as he's the only one on the force who is not only able to connect Assane to all of the crimes he's committed in Part 1, but also the fact that Assane is inspired by Arsené Lupin books. Guedira knows Assane's name, face, and other important personal details — it's going to take a lot more work than usual for Assane to wiggle his way out of this mess.
With Pellegrini closing in, and both law enforcement and Pellegrini himself aware of both Assane's identity and his weak points — namely, the names and location of Assane's family — our aspiring gentleman thief has never been at a tougher spot. Fans are going to have to wait at least a few months before they find out what happens — though now may be a perfect time to do some reading to find out how Arsené Lupin would make his escape.
The first five episodes that make up 'Lupin' Part 1 are now available to stream on Netflix.
