Your eyes aren't deceiving you: Lupin is returning for a second season on Netflix. Expect trickery in all five episodes that will either send you into a fit or make you sigh in relief. Warning: Spoilers Ahead

The second season of Netflix's Lupin will play tricks on the mind and heart. And yet you'll find yourself returning for more, much like how the first season ended with a cliffhanger.

What appears to be a stalemate between Youssef Guedira (played by Soufiane Guerrab) and the titular character (Omar Sy) at the end of episode five has left us wondering how the world-famous gentleman thief and master of disguise can get away this time.

Apart from the police on his tail, Assane Diop has to run after his son, Raoul (Etan Simon), who has been kidnapped by Hubert Pellegrini's (Hervé Pierre) henchman Leonard (Adama Niane).

The chase continues throughout the first episode of Lupin Part 2 and ends with a chilling turning point for both the hero and other characters who we'll get to know further as the show escalates. More importantly, you can expect a whole lot of trickery in these five new episodes that will either send you into a fit or make you sigh in relief.

The show also goes in-depth about Assane's relationship with the two women who played a significant role in his life; Claire, the mother of Raoul, and Juliette, the daughter of Pellegrini whom he reunites with.

Fans of both the show and the original book by Maurice Leblanc are also in for a treat; Guedira, who first put the pieces together about the gentleman thief, finally gets more screentime as we see him interact with Assane, almost as if he's taking on the mantle of Inspector Ganimard from Leblanc's novel.

Behind the tricks and disguises that Lupin slips into is a father who deeply cares for his son.

In hopes of avenging his late father, Assange continues to come after Pelligrini. This time, however, Assane is immensely motivated after his own family was put at risk. Although he asks for his best friend Benjamin Ferel's (Antoine Gouy) assistance, he also gets assistance from characters we have yet to learn more of. Altogether, they devise an elaborate and brilliant ploy to finally bring Pellegrini to justice.

Apart from Pellegrini, perhaps one of the most detestable villains that are hard to miss on the show is one that we see off-screen: racism. It aggravates each situation, as much as it does in real life, but is well-portrayed in the show. Although it's shown in bits of pieces, the message is clear: this vicious force only affects everyone—Assane and even the other characters—hero or not.

Accompany gentleman thief and master of disguise Lupin for the second time and brace yourself for his next brilliant trick.


Lupin Part 2 premieres on Netflix on 11 June. To know more, visit netflix.com/lupin
