Netflix has announced when Lupine will return, the French series about the white-gloved thief that is inspired by the iconic character devised more than a century ago by Maurice Leblanc. But if you are eager to know the exact broadcast date, it will still be necessary to wait a bit, as the red platform has only announced that Lupine “will return throughout 2021”. Although it is not of great consolation to the thousands of followers that the series is collecting around the world, they will at least be happy to know that they will have to wait less than a year to see the charismatic Parisian thief return.
The expectation generated by these new episodes comes from the success that it seems to be reaping. According to data provided by the company, Lupine has become the most viewed French production on the platform internationally: the series would be seen by 70 million households in its first 28 days (data that corresponds to its projections), following very closely about 76 million of its blockbuster The Witcher, the fiction of the house that currently holds the most-watched throne.
The fiction stars Omar Sy as Assane Diop, who as a young man watched as his father was wrongly accused of a crime, leading to his untimely death. In the first part of the season, we follow the character’s trail twenty-five years after the tragedy when inspired by a book by Arsène Lupine that his father gave him, he decides to avenge his death. The series has been created by George Kay ( Killing Eve, Criminal ) and François Uzan.
