When it feels like you have watched everything on Netflix, every buzzy new release that’s trending, just know that there are plenty more stones left to turn. In the past year, the French mystery thriller series Lupin has found success on Netflix as an original series. If you haven’t yet checked out the new hit, it’s a mystery worth solving.

Based on the character Arsène Lupin created by Maurice Leblanc, Lupin stars Omar Sy as Assane Diop, a gentleman thief inspired by the titular character from the books his father gave him. Twenty-five years after the death of his father, Assane seeks revenge on the infamous Pellegrini family, using all of the tricks of his trade to help expose the crimes swept under the rug.

Lupin first premiered on Netflix in January 2021, kicking off the new year with a little mystery. The series holds a near-perfect 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and earned the rarified air of being the most-watched title on Netflix in the first quarter of 2021. With five episodes currently streaming, the second half of the thrilling first season of Lupin drop later this year, but it’s never too late to start bingeing.
