Netflix’s shows are known for their subversive approach to various themes and reimagining classic stories. The same holds true for the series Lupin, inspired by the adventures of gentleman thief Arsène Lupin, from the novels of Maurice Leblanc.
Assane Diop, the main character of the Netflix series, is a professional thief who prepares a revenge plan inspired by Leblanc’s novels. Years ago, Assane’s father was framed by Hubert Pellegrini for the theft of a valuable diamond necklace and took his own life in a prison cell. Assane uses all his wit and skills to track Pellegrini down and punish him for the harm done to his father.

Lupin season 3 plot
Season 2 ended on a positive note for Assane. After a long struggle, he caught Hubert Pellegrini and brought him to justice. However, this doesn’t mean that Diop can enjoy a peaceful life. In the season 2 finale, as a wanted thief, he had to slip away from the police.
Now in hiding, Assane must learn to live far from his wife and son. Unable to bear the suffering they endure because of him, Assane decides to return to Paris with a crazy proposal: leave France and start a new life elsewhere. But the ghosts of the past are never far away, and an unexpected return will turn his plans upside down.
The showrunner of the series, George Kay, announced that in season 3, fans can expect a fresh story and some kind of new beginning. Of course, there will be a lot of references to the Arsène Lupin novels, which Assane is such a big fan of.
