In response to the tweet, Sy wrote: “We can’t hide anything from you. Lupin part 3 is confirmed!”

An official synopsis for part two of Lupin reads: “Assane’s quest for revenge against Hubert Pelligrini has torn his family to pieces. With his back to the wall, he now has to think of a new plan, even if it means putting himself in danger.”

The show focuses on Assane Diop (Omar Sy), a professional thief and the only son of a Senegalese immigrant who came to France to find a better life for his child.

Assane’s father is then framed for a crime by his employer and takes his own life. The series then follows Assane, inspired by gentleman thief Arsène Lupin, vowing to get revenge on the family who killed his father.
