lupin part 2 trailer

The master thief is returning with a vengeance this June. Netflix has released a new Lupin Part 2 trailer announcing the release date for the next five episodes of the hit French caper series. And we’re only going to be posting the one with subtitles because that English dubbed monstrosity is not worth any of our attention. Watch the Lupin Part 2 trailer below.

lupin part 2

Lupin was the first surprise streaming hit of 2021, with its first five slick, super-fun episodes taking Netflix by storm. The crime caper series starring Omar Sy became the first French series to make the streamer’s U.S. Top 10. But because of Netflix’s weird release strategy (splitting up shows by “Parts” instead of seasons), we’re left to wait to find out what happens next to Sy’s master thief Assane Diop. And thankfully the wait won’t be too long, with Lupin Part 2 set to hit Netflix this summer.

Where You Can Stream It: Netflix

The Pitch: Assane Diop (Omar Sy) is a dashing thief who is inspired to take on a life of crime by the exploits of fictional gentleman thief Arsène Lupin, and by the arrest and suicide of his wrongfully convicted father after he was framed for the theft of a precious necklace. When the necklace resurfaces 25 years later, Assane vows to prove his father’s innocence and to find the people responsible for his death.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: You may have noticed an odd French series taking one of the top 10 spots on Netflix last weekend — the first French-language series earn one of those spots in the U.S. You might have thought, what’s the deal with Lupin? Is it that good? Well, I’m here to tell you: it is.

Lupin trailer

In 1905, French writer Maurice Leblanc created a character named Arsène Lupin, who embodies one of my favorite archetypes in all of storytelling: the gentleman thief. Since his creation, the suave, crafty Lupin has appeared in several short stories, books, comics, and movies over the years, and even inspired a grandson character, Lupin III, who was the subject of acclaimed animation director Hayao Miyazaki’s feature directorial debut and, more recently, a new CG animated film called Lupin III The First.

Now Lupin will live to outwit his enemies once again, thanks to a new Netflix series from Now You See Me and Transporter 2 director Louis Leterrier. Check out the full trailer for the show below, but be warned: you’re about to see some truly awful dubbing.
