Netflix’s live-action revival series of the legendary Arsene Lupin, the same one from the mangas and anime series “Lupin,” just landed its third season on the popular streaming platform, and the public is already watching it, enjoying it and can’t get enough of it. With great scriptwriting, amazing performances, and also shot entirely in France, each season of Lupin tells how Arsene Lupin and his crew manage to pull off high-level heists.
Much like the original cartoon and manga, Omar Sy’s Lupin isn’t exempt from facing all sorts of hurdles on his way to getting his hands on the prized objects he seeks to take; he faces double-crossings, deceits, shady police officers, and many other surprises.
So, after all’s been said and done about season three, what is up with season four? Are we having a fourth season of this show, and if so, when? We provided you with a very extensive recap with spoilers for context so you can know what went down with the latest season, as well as telling you the very little intel there’s on the renewal of this French police procedural series.
Lupin Season 3 Recap
Assane resides in Marseille after going missing following his exposure to Hubert Pellegrini. Although he is hiding from the public, Assane’s revelation as the master thief has completely turned Claire and Raoul’s lives upside down.
He goes back to Paris, steals the coveted Black Pearl, and then poses as dead because he doesn’t want his family to suffer any longer. Then again, some ghosts from the past reappear. They abduct his mother, Mariama, and demand that he rob multiple locations on their behalf.
Assane is forced to sacrifice Benjamin at one point as the list of tasks grows more daring and dangerous. Eventually, he discovers the kidnapper’s true identity and devises a strategy to free his family, save his mother, and permanently destroy the adversaries. Ultimately, though, he is forced to make a difficult choice that alters the trajectory of his life.
Since the boy placed the gun in his hand and caused Jean-Luc Keller to be found guilty of murder, the man had wanted to exact revenge on Assane. Keller took his time exacting revenge on Assane, using his mother—who he eventually located in Senegal—to complicate Assane’s life. But in the end, Keller’s own people start to turn against him.
After Keller tries to kill him by throwing him out of a window, one of them reports him to the police. The other, Manon, receives an offer from Assane and, upon learning the truth about what actually transpired all those years ago, decides it would be best to leave her employer.
Keller makes an attempt to murder Assane’s family, but Claire’s fast thinking saves him. Assane arranges a meeting with him at the Arc de Triomphe with the idea that he would give Keller the Black Pearl in order to resolve their differences. But when the police arrive and arrest Keller, it turns out to be a trap. Keller may have thought that Assane would never approach the police because they would arrest him as well. Ultimately, Keller is taken into custody on multiple charges, thereby reentering the criminal justice system.
Even with his exceptional thieving skills, Assane was never able to rob a location by himself. He needed allies, and Benjamin was by far his greatest one. Guédira enters the picture when Assane turns to unorthodox options after being arrested. He is informed of Assame’s predicament and asks for assistance.
In addition, he vows to give up when all of this is over, and they run into each other again. Guédira honors his pledge. He assists Assane, which leads to the recovery of a pilfered painting and the apprehension of Manon, who was collaborating with Keller.
Ultimately, Assane does not flee when he has Keller in his grasp, and the police are closing in. He surrenders himself as agreed upon. He had the option to flee Paris and take his family with him. Even though the plan was already in place, Assane was aware that he would be leaving his family with no guarantees for the future. What kind of life would that be for his family, especially his son, having to be constantly on the run?
Lupin Season 4 Release Date
Considering that Lupin’s third season just landed on Netflix this month, it is quite early to tell as to when the fourth run of this wildly popular French heist show will return to the small screens. In any case, we can expect a fourth season depending on several factors.
Firstly, is just how willing the producers are to renew it, contrast that with the cast, whose schedule needs to be in sync for filming, and lastly, the most defining aspect, is how Lupin’s third season does ratings-wise.
Once you factor in all those things, you could expect Lupin season 4 to maybe land back on Netflix sometime in Late 2024 or early 2025. But this is all speculation.
How Many Episodes Will Lupin Season 4 Have?
The sophomore season of Lupin consisted of five episodes that were the continuation of the debut season in their numbering. For season three, Netflix changed the numbering of the episodes, and season three started titling their episodes from Episode 1. and as a bonus, we’re getting two more episodes for season 3.
So, if the third season is as successful, we could expect either more episodes or a continuation of the plotlines for season three. In any case, it is too early to tell, but we’re sure that this series won’t disappoint its audience because it is amazingly produced, and its editing, cinematography, and performances are impeccable.
