Lupin is a French drama/caper series inspired by the adventures of Arsène Lupin, a fictional gentleman thief and master of disguise created by Maurice LaBlanc as a contemporary to Sherlock Holmes. The series, now entering its third installment on Netflix, follows a modern gentleman thief, Assane Diop (Omar Sy), who builds a career of subterfuge based on the Lupin books he read as a child.
Discover Lupin‘s Story
Assane has spent much of his life becoming a master of thievery and disguise, inspired by the stories his father gave him when he was growing up. As an adult, he uses his skill and charisma to embark on a series of elaborate cons to discover the truth behind and avenge his father’s unjust arrest and death in prison when Assane was still a kid. His goal is to uncover the crimes of the family of the wealthy Hubert Pellegrini, who framed his father 25 years earlier.
