I think I’ve said it here on Small Screen before, but I’ll say it again. I love Lupin. The new French heist TV show is unlike anything else available on the streaming service and it stars a brilliant Omar Sy in the lead role.
It’s recently been revealed that Lupin Season 2 (or Part 2), is going to be released on Netflix later this year. The reason they want to release it so quickly after releasing the first five episodes is because it’s now on course to becoming one of Netflix’s biggest ever hits.
Lupin is on course to becoming Netflix’s second-biggest hit ever
It was revealed that Lupin is looking like it’ll become the first French series on Netflix to be watched by over 70 million households in its first 28 days. This means that it’s managed to beat the English-language hit series Bridgerton (projected at 63M) and The Queen’s Gambit (62M actuals).
The show, which stars Omar Sy was released on January 8th and ended up becoming the very first French series to be on Netflix’s Top 10 list. It ended up occupying the number 1 spot in France and many other territories in Europe. Netflix reports it has also ranked No. 1 in Brazil, Vietnam, Argentina, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Sweden and many other countries. Lupin is 93% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.
