“Lupin ss 2”: release date, announcement
The show received 95% approval from Rotten Tomatoes and was ranked in the Top 10 TV Shows from Netflix in the US, France, South America, Germany and many other countries. Is it possible to close a project after such a success?
The sequel to the “Lupin” thriller series has yet to be announced, although fans hope to see Season 2 no later than January 2022.
Recall that season 1 was shown in two parts: the first 5 episodes aired in January 2021, the second 5 episodes – in June 2021. Most likely, season 2 will also be split into 2 parts.
Assane Diop grew up as a calm child. He loved his father very much and always tried to obey him. The parent had many qualities that he could share with his son. After moving to France, the man began working as a chauffeur in the Pelegrini house, and often looked at the huge library. Once he even took a book with the permission of the mistress of the house, and after a while a necklace disappeared in this room.
Hubert did not seek the truth, blaming the black Mr. Diop for everything. Having come to his father on a date in prison, Assan did not even have time to talk to him. Out of grief and shame, the father decided to hang himself, leaving the boy an orphan. Only Mrs. Pellegrini came to the funeral, whom Assane had sent to hell, not wanting to have anything to do with this family.
Years passed, inspired by the book about the thief Lupin, which his father gave, Assane decides to build his destiny on the same principle. Remaining a gentleman in the eyes of others, he commits crimes and is not shy about any methods. He is not afraid of any blackmail or threats, since he owns these skills to perfection.
Assane now has his own family, which he does not live with. He has excellent relations with his son and his mother, while the main character tries to fulfill his fatherly duty by helping the woman financially. However, Assane had one thought for many years. While still a boy, he vowed to take revenge on Hubert for unreasonably exposing his father to harm. It remains only to figure out how to do it.
Once such a case presented itself. A necklace was found in an black market and returned to the Pellegrini family. It is now in the Louvre and is being sold by his daughter of Hubert. Determined to rob the museum, Assane comes up with a plan and puts it into action. But the consequences are not long in coming, because police detective Youssef Guedira guessed from the very beginning that the robbery took place according to the book by Maurice Leblanc…
