Netflix has officially released the trailer for season two of Lupin, a French Heist-based mystery thriller, starring Omar Sy, reported Deadline. Helmed by Ludovic Bernard and Hugo Gelin, season one featured five episodes.

As seen in the recently dropped trailer, the first season ended with a major cliffhanger. The upcoming season will also have five episodes which will reveal Assane’s future plans.

Sy was seen as a young Senegalese immigrant who moved to Paris with his father. As an adult, he has transformed into the catch-me-if-you-can thief and a master in disguise. Into the series, Assane is seen being dragged by the crime that put his father behind the bars, resulting in forced suicide.

The series is said to be a loose adaptation of hit French novels based on Arsene Lupin and penned by Maurice Leblanc. The show, however, has been set in the present day with a hero that inspires to follow the fictional character’s footsteps and the idea of a ‘gentleman thief.’

Lupin has become a big, and somewhat surprising hit for Netflix, with 70M households having watched it within four weeks of its launch on January 8. It competed for the top five ranks alongside the regency drama Bridgerton.
