Lupin season 3 release date and reviews

Lupin season 3 dropped on Thursday, October 5, 2023, and received generally positive reviews that praised Omar Sy’s charismatic performance.

Some critics also cited this season as the bloodiest and most violent so far, which is always what we like to hear. This season is currently sitting high at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

“The noble effort to expand the storyline beyond Assane’s creative purloining of expensive stuff sometimes shows the strain… Nevertheless, the natural charisma of Mr. Sy remains, as do the charms of his principal co-star, Ludivine Sagnier,” wrote The Wall Street Journal‘s John Anderson.

Meanwhile, Alan Sepinwall from Rolling Stone said: “The series remains entertaining, thanks to the wild charisma of Omar Sy as Assane, and to the cleverness of many of the heists.”

“[Omar Sy]’s suave air lends itself to the show’s kinetic cinematography, but more importantly, you genuinely believe he has the gall to outwit all who stand in his way,” wrote Leila Latif from The Guardian.

The first trailer for Lupin season 3 dropped on September 6, 2023.

It gives a look into Lupin’s most ambitious heist yet, as he deals with the lingering impact from season 2. There’s plenty more, of course, and you can see for yourself below:

What is Lupin season 3 about?

Lupin season 3 saw Assane faking his own death, the kidnapping of his mother, and an old rivalry coming back to life after the reappearance of a past foe.

Seasons 1 and 2 brought viewers a spectacular finale that saw Lupin finally uncover the truth behind Hubert Pelligrini’s wrongdoings and saw him arrested alongside corrupt police commissioner Gabriel Dumont. In doing so, he cleared his late father’s name.

Season 3 sees Assane come face-to-face with his old boxing coach, Jean-Luc Keller, who kidnaps his mother, Mariama. Keller used to teach Assane when he was younger, but Assane later ditched him when he found out that the coach was using his students to pull off illegal activities, and their relationship went cold. Obviously, Keller still holds a grudge about this. (It’s fair enough, really — Keller does end up spending 25 years in prison because of Assane.)

Keller returns to Assane’s life to hold his mother hostage in exchange for Assane’s help in a new heist. Classic. All this results in Assane betraying an old childhood friend, Ben. Not great, especially since Ben helped Assane fake his own death so that his family could be safe.

All this means that Assane’s two goals for the season are to outwit Keller and save his mother, as well as to reunite with Ben and help him get out of prison.

How many episodes of Lupin season 3 are there?

There are seven episodes total in Lupin season 3.

This is the longest season by far, which is probably due to the number of flashbacks to Assane’s past we get in this season. Hey, we’re not complaining.
