The Maurice Leblanc popular character, Arsene Lupin, was featured in 17 novels and several other short stories, for a total of 24 books. The first season refers to several novels (including Lupin’s “Aiguille Creuse”) so the series certainly doesn’t follow a linear order. More over, the Assane character is NOT Arsene Lupin itself, but takes inspiration from Lupin. However, the richness of stories from Maurice Leblanc Novels means there is a lot of potential for new plot and twists in the Netflix series.
