What to expect?
Released on January 8th, 2021, Lupin Part 1 featured the story of a young man who has turned into a professional thief to avenge his father's demise. His father named him Assane Diop after fictional thief Assane Lupin. This is why he decided to plan a heist and construct strategies to take down the family responsible for his father's suicide.
His strategies and plans are inspired by the book on thief Arsène Lupin, which his father gifted to him on his birthday. Like most heist stories, Lupin has many obstacles and twists that the protagonist has to recover while following his ultimate goal.
Part 1 ended on a suspenseful note while keeping a space for more twists that viewers can watch in part 2. Viewers need to remember that Lupin is not a light-hearted drama series.
