Netflix releases the action-packed teaser trailer for part two of its hit French thriller Lupin

Netflix gave expectant fans a hint of what’s to come on its popular crime series Lupin on Friday with the release of a new teaser trailer.

The teaser for Lupin Part 2 promises an escalation of tensions as Omar Sy’s character Assane Diop wages a stealth war against the family he blames for his father’s death.

The series, which released the first half of its first season on January 8, is set to be back on streaming sometime in the summer of 2021. 

Part Deux: Acclaimed French star Omar Sy stars as Assane Diop in the teaser for back half of the first season of Netflix’s hit crime series Lupin, which dropped Friday

Sy, who broke out internationally with his role in the hit French dramedy The Intouchables, plays a professional thief who now has to resort to more extreme and violent measures to take down the Pellegrini family.

He blames them for framing his father for the theft of a valuable necklace, and thinks the shame of being caught for a crime he didn’t commit drove him to suicide. 

Inspired by a book about the popular fictional French thief Arsène Lupin, Diop uses disguises and subterfuge to get information about his father’s fate and the Pellegrini family’s culpability.

The tease opens with Diop standing across a field and talking on the phone while addressing a man standing in the window of a large house across the way.

‘If you touch my son… I’ll kill you,’ he intones over a sinister score.

The teaser cuts to Hubert Pellegrini (Hervé Pierre), who may have stolen the necklace that led to Diop’s father’s imprisonment.

‘If Diop realizes we have his son we won’t have to look for him,’ he says sinisterly. ‘We’re going to use his kid as bait.’ 

Then, Diop is shown in montage disguised as a chef as he flees armed men in a restaurant’s back hallways.

Once he’s discovered hiding in an elevator he efficiently dispatches the armed men and takes their handguns.

The trailer concludes with a humorous scene as Diop stops a man’s car by falsely identifying himself as a police officer.

He claims the man’s car has a flat tire, but once he gets out to check, Diop turns around and shoots a hole in the tire of an idling police car nearby.

Now that it won’t be able to follow him, he steals the man’s car while he’s still distracted.

So far, Netflix hasn’t shared a release date, but the second half of Lupin’s first season will arrive sometime in the summer of 2021.
