French star Omar Sy steals hearts in Lupin

Oui, Lupin is back! And French star Omar Sy is reprising the lead role in Part 2 of the Netflix mystery thriller/heist series following the global success of the first season.

Lupin is the modern retelling of French author Maurice Leblanc’s literary legacy from over 100 years ago, The Arrest of Arsène Lupin, about the escapades of the mysterious “gentleman thief.”

The hero of the Netflix series, Assane Diop, is a fan of Lupin who inspires him to execute his own daring schemes and burglaries.

Part 1 robbed audiences’ hearts based on these facts: 76 million watched Lupin within 28 days of the launch; it’s the first French show to land on Netflix’s US Top 10 list; 140,000 copies of Leblanc’s books sold in France and French-speaking countries; and the new official edition of Hachette’s novels of Lupin, Gentleman Burglar topped the list of Young Adult best-selling books for 10 weeks.

In the Philippines, it was on the Top 10 most-watched list.
