The Plot of Lupin Season 3
In the first two parts, viewers were able to learn more about the story of Assane Diop (Omar Sy), a kind thief and costume expert who takes the pseudonym Lupin. Years after an injustice, he tries to settle accounts – and debts – by stealing a diamond necklace, but the theft takes an unexpected turn and turns his life and that of those around him upside down.
In the third season, the protagonist is tired of living in hiding, away from his wife and child. So he decides to return to the French capital to convince Claire (Ludivine Sagnier) and Raoul (Etan Simon) to take part in another grand theft, and then leave France to start a new life in another country. But Diop’s plans do not go according to plan, as an unexpected person returns to his life as a ghost from the past.
