Fans were ecstatic with the news that the five-part show would be returning later this year, and sooner than perhaps expected. One person wrote in the replies underneath the post: "So soon, that's awesome!! That was too much of a cliffhanger and I get terrified when movies have kids getting kidnapped."

Another person said: "YESSSSS!!!!!", while a third tweeted: "Can't wait!! Hurry!".

The first series of Lupin introduced viewers to Assane Diop, a criminal who models his work on the fictional character of gentleman thief, Arsène Lupin. Part one saw Assane seek to avenge a false accusation of theft placed upon his father by a wealthy French family, which then led to his death.

The series has proved to be extremely well-received by fans and, according to Variety, the streaming platform estimates that Lupin will be seen by 70 million subscribers, giving Bridgerton and The Queen's Gambit a run for their money.
