When Variety revealed in December 2020 that the show has a total of 10 episodes and they would be released in two parts of equal proportions, fans were extremely happy and they were quite excited about the series as well. Now, they no longer had to wait for the showrunners George Kay and François Uzan, to create a script and shoot the next group of episodes which was a major hurdle in this period of Coronavirus.
It means that soon we are going to see the new batch of episodes for which we are so enthusiastic. However, Netflix still needs to disclose the exact date of launch. But now you can pin down the duration of the summer months in your diary so that you can’t forget to watch part 2. At the same time, we don’t want to make anticipations about the fortune of further seasons as it will mainly rely on the ending of Lupin part 2.
What Is Going To Happen In Lupin Part 2?
The first-half of Lupin ended on a suspenseful note which will be revealed in the second part. At the climax of the first part Assane’s son, Raoul gets abducted by a guy of Hubert Pellegrini’s henchmen when the family was busy in the outing of a French seacoast town. So, definitely in the upcoming set of episodes Diop and her unusual spouse will use all the tactics to find out their son.
Apart from this, Diop will also explore ways to assure investigator Youssef Guedira that he is a nice man. Also, he has to complete his actual target of exposing the wrong deeds of the Pellegrini family’s so that he can remove the stains from his dad’s character. While discussing with Vanity, Kay the series developer has hinted what will happen in Lupin’s part 2 episodes.
He mentioned that we will get to see the scenes of previous years before Diop became the decent robber which he is now. He also added that the season will terminate with Diop’s avenge story versus the Pellegrini family and will also have Lupin’s trademark deeds chain put against Paris’s most famous areas, equaling the level of his astounding jewelry robbery at the Louvre.
