On Rotten Tomatoes, Lupin season 2, which premiered on Friday, has a perfect score of 100 percent after six reviews.
Netflix’s French mystery-thriller Lupin has begun receiving first reviews for its second season. Based on six studies, the series, which debuted its sophomore edition on Friday, has so far received a perfect 100 percent rating on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes.
In the show created by George Kay and François Uzan as a Senegalese immigrant and a professional thief named Assane Diop, Omar Sy stars in the show. His father was framed for the theft of a diamond necklace and hanged himself in prison. Assane vows revenge against those responsible.
According to Brandon Katz of The Observer, Lupin represents the kind of broad appeal story broadcast would kill for.
“Mamadou Haidara’s portrayal of young Assane shows brilliant embryonic traits, destined to turn into Omar Sy’s formidable mountainous form as he matures.” wrote Financial Times’ Times Suzi Feay.
Dan Fienberg writes in The Hollywood Reporter: “Some imperfections, however, don’t detract from Omar Sy’s star power, from the healing escapism of the Parisian settings, or the show’s satisfying propulsion.”
Michael Hogan said, “Lupin is a blockbuster addition to the cross-Channel canon, with its cinematic gloss and addictive thriller appeal. Imagine Ocean’s Eleven meets Robin Hood, Luther with a raised eyebrow and a more excellent coat.
In a recent interview, Ready Steady Cut’s said that although the second season is more of the same, “the only difference is that it feels more personal, which works in the story’s favor.”
