LUPINE. Lupine Part 2 is available on Netflix. But is a sequel, in the form of a third season, up to date? What we know.
[Mis à jour le 11 juin 2021 à 13h55] Friday, June 11, Lupine fans were able to discover, and perhaps already complete, Part 2 of the series. It was put online at 9:01 am, as is the case with all the original series on the platform. After this new salvo of five episodes, some may wonder about the future of the series: a third part, in the form of a part 3 or a season 3, is it planned?
And the most observant fans will know that it is! Lupine season 3 / part 3 was subtly announced when the trailer for part 2 went live. You can see in a picture a hand writing a letter. Web address in a notebook. By going there, we discover the following message: “Assane is always one step ahead, Lupine will come back for part 3”. As the famous hero played by Omar Sy says, “you saw, but you did not watch.” The date of this part 3 of Lupine, however, has not yet been announced.
Lupine part 1 recap
If you forgot a few plot elements from Lupine Part 1 before seeing Part 2, here’s a little booster. Inspired by the methods of Arsène Lupine, the gentleman burglar invented by Maurice Leblanc, Assane Diop decides to organize the theft of a necklace that belonged to Marie-Antoinette, exhibited at the Louvre. With this theft, he seeks revenge on the Pellegrini family, who wrongly accused his father of a crime he did not commit twenty-five years ago. But by committing this theft, he alienates the police, but especially the Pellegrini family. To revenge himself, Hubert Pellegrini kidnaps Raoul, Assane’s son … while the police officer Youssef Guedira discovers that Assane Diop is none other than Lupine. The sequel will be available on Netflix on Friday in part 2 of the series.
A time announced for the summer of 2021, part 2 of Lupine is finally available on Netflix. The sequel to the series was uploaded to Netflix on 11 June 2021 from 9:01 am on the streaming platform. This date was formalized on the occasion of the publication of a new trailer for part 2 of the series, on May 11, 2021, one month before the release of this sequel to Lupine.
“Lupine: in the shadow of Arsène” is a French detective series created by George Kay and François Uzan broadcast on Netflix since January 8, 2021. Omar Sy plays Assane Diop, a burglar inspired by the character Arsène Lupine, invented by Maurice Leblanc. A season of five episodes is currently available on the subscription streaming platform. Each episode lasts between 40 and 50 minutes. The second part goes live on Netflix on June 11, 2021.
Synopsis – Several years ago, Assane Diop’s father died when he was wrongly accused of a crime he did not commit by the Pellegrini family. Once an adult, Assane Diop takes it into his head to steal a necklace that belonged to Marie-Antoine of Austria to take revenge on the Pellegrini, who are the last owners of the jewel. To commit his theft, he is inspired by Arsène Lupine, the gentleman burglar invented by Maurice Leblanc. But the police are chasing him.
For now, Netflix offers to discover two parts of Lupine: the first, uploaded in January 2021, and the second, available on the streaming platform since 11 June 2021. When the trailer for part 2 went live, a season 3, or rather a third part of the series, was subtly announced by the platform. This is under development.
Where was the Lupine series filmed on Netflix?
The shooting of the first part of Lupine was shot mainly in Paris, at the Louvre museum but also in the Paris region: the prison scenes are shot at the Bois-d’Arcy prison, while the youth of Assane has for decoration the college of the House of education of the legion of honor, in Saint-Germain-en-Laye. Scenes are also shot on board the Orient-Express and at Villeneuve-Triage station. Finally, the teams also put their cameras in Etretat: a nod to the original work of Maurice Leblanc, since Arsène Lupine had several adventures that took place in the city of Seine-Maritime, in particular the famous affair of the “hollow needle”.
