Finally, the fans won’t have to wait so long for the next batch, because the ten-episode of the first season has already been filmed in its entirety, meaning that a resolution to the first part’s cliffhanger is on it’s way. The second part was already dropped on July 11, so it’s streaming now on Netflix.
Judging by the simple premise that guides them, these episodes aren’t as sweeping and frenetic as they used to. Assane is still focused on his overarching goal seeing that those responsible for framing his father decades ago are brought to the kind of justice only he can dispense. That goal is both complicated and renewed by the events right before Part 2 begins. After a reconciliatory bus ride promises some happier news on the horizon, Assane’s son Raoul (Etan Simon) is kidnapped. Hubert Pelligrini (Hervé Pierre), the man responsible for bringing pain into Assane’s childhood, seems hellbent on doing it again to him as an adult.
The official trailer shows that Assane was searching for his son.
Lupin ends with the kind of cliffhanger that makes part two a necessity. At the end of the fifth episode, Assane’s son, Raoul, is kidnapped by one of Hubert Pellegrini’s henchmen during a family trip to a French seaside town. In the official trailer, we see Assane doing whatever it takes to find Raoul. Meanwhile, the police have figured out his identity and are on his trail.

Now, in addition, to outing Pellegrini as the bad guy he is, Assane has to track down his son. Looks like he’ll have an action-packed last few episodes. Then again, being a bit confused until the final reveal, then getting to watch it all over again, with full knowledge of the schemes at hand, is one of the main reasons people love a heist flick.
