Just a few days after publishing our prediction that Lupin season 2 would get approved, we received the official confirmation that Netflix has officially approved Lupin for season 2. The gentleman thief will be coming back for a new season in 2021.
Season 2 Release Date & Teaser
Season 2 is expected to be released “later in 2021” according to Netflix. Fans can look forward to more episodes before the end of the year. An exact release date is yet to be confirmed.
While the release date is not yet available, Netflix has just released a new teaser. Assane’s quest for revenge on Pellegrini tore his family to pieces. With Pellegrini’s team abducting his son at the end of the first season, Assane has to come up with a new plan, even if that means risking his life.
Lupin has been a blockbuster hit for Netflix, with an estimated 70 million subscribers watching the show. Lupin came out ahead of other blockbuster series or movies including Holidate, a Christmas-themed rom-com movie (68 millions), Over the Moon (43 millions) or Barbarians, a German historical series (37 millions).
What can we expect in season 2?
The first season left us on a cliffhanger with a cop “accidentally” identifying Assane. Assane turned around when being called “Lupin”, potentially revealing his identity to the cop. However, we know that the cop’s theories that the recent thefts were inspired by Lupin’s stories fell flat with his superiors. As a result, he will likely have a hard time to convince his team that Assane is the person they have been looking for, simply because he turned around when being called Lupin (in particular since the scene took place at a gathering of Arsene Lupin fans). As a result, we believe that Assane will continue to be able to operate and go after Pellegrini without being successfully identified by the Police.
We currently don’t have any details from Netflix on the exact plot, but season 2 will continue the first season when Assane’s son was abducted by the Pelligrini men. Since the series is inspired by the Arsene Lupin novels (24 of them), there is a tremendous amount of materials that Netflix can draw on for several new seasons.
This is great news since Lupin was received with a warm welcome by the Netflix community, with a TVscorecards score of 86%, placing Lupin as one of the top new series released on Netflix.

UPDATE: Lupin is now renewed for a season 2 by Netflix. Netflix confirmed season 2 will start in summer 2021.
With an estimated 4 million viewers in its first week following its Netflix release and high tv ratings (TVscorecards score of 86%), we expect to hear about a Lupin season 2 renewal by end of February or March at the latest.
The new "Lupin" series on Netflix showcases the story of a new "gentleman cambrioleur" (Thieve) in modern-day Paris. The series is inspired by the very popular "Arsene Lupin" novels. The hero, Assane Diop, decides to get revenge on Mr Pellegrini, a wealthy but corrupt industrialist who is responsible for the death of Assane's father. Assane is an expert thief who took inspiration from Arsene Lupin's techniques and mastery for deception.
