Lupin is back and season 3 is full of twists and turns, just like its previous two seasons. We are given further insight into Assane’s complicated past and relationship with Claire, while there’s interwoven drama around his mother too.

Arsene Lupin’s influence on modern day Lupin just got a notch heavier. The visualisation of Arsene Lupin’s heist in the modern world are definitely the highlight of the series and also one of the reasons why the show is a fan favourite. Each episode brings a new Lupin story to life, with Assane’s calculation of each step, consideration of each variable and confidence in his skill admirable to see.

Each heist is explained in detail without making it sound like a complicated equation.This further adds to the likeness of each plan.

It is also quite interesting to see Assane battle not one but two challenges at the same time. First is the heist that he wishes and the second is the main nemesis he keeps at bay until the very last minute.

Since the first season, the makers have made it a point to show Assane’s past and present in parallel to give a reason for his present actions or to trace back to a similar incident from his past.

This constant representation of Assane’s past and present adds depth to Assane’s character and also shows how he came to be the way he is as a person. Despite being a thief, he is loyal to his family. He sure regrets certain consequences that caused pain to his family and tries to do everything in his power to win them back.

The other characters in the story carry a painful story of their own. These stories make them closer to reality and relatable to viewers. Be it Ben, Claire, Raoul, Bruno, even Assane’s dead father or mother Mariama, each character is portrayed well, so much so that you might feel you have met them in real life. 

The overall pacing is quite good to keep viewers engaged without making the experience feel lethargic. The multiple point of view narration gives a rounded feel to the story being told at that moment, and only heightens the drama.

Overall, if you want to dive into the world of thrillers or see your favourite Lupin stories come to life, Netflix’s Lupin is the choice for you and it continues to deliver here in its third season.
