Netflix has finally announced that Lupin Part 2, the final five episodes that will complete Season 1 of the series that debuted back in January, will hit the streaming service on June 11. It was revealed back in March that these episodes will land sometime this summer, so it's not nearly as long a wait as it could have been.

The official synopsis for this next batch of episodes reads: "Arsène 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." Check out a recently released trailer below.

The intriguing crime drama is only coincidentally similar to the massively popular anime series of the same name--only because it draws inspiration from the same source material: the fictional adventures of early 20th century gentleman thief and master of disguise, Arsène Lupin. In this new French imagining of those capers, Lupin is the only son of a Senegalese immigrant who came to France to seek a better life for his child. Rather than being the beneficiary of a better life, Lupin instead is orphaned as a teenager after his father is framed for a crime by his boss, Hubert Pellegrini.

These upcoming episodes are directed by Ludovic Bernard (Episodes 6 and 7) and Hugo Gélin (Episodes 8, 9, and 10). The show's cast includes Omar Sy, Hervé Pierre, Nicole Garcia, Clotilde Hesme, Ludivine Sagnier, Antoine Gouy, Shirine Boutella, and Soufiane Guerrab. This Netflix adaptation is co-created by George Kay in collaboration with François Uzan.
