Lupin spoilers follow.

According to Omar Sy and the website of Assane Diop, his character in Lupin, season three (or part three, if that's how you roll) is all systems go.

"We can't hide anything from you. Lupin part 3 is confirmed!" he tweeted after a French journalist shared the news.

We can’t hide anything from you. 👀Lupin part 3 is confirmed!

— Omar Sy (@OmarSy) May 11, 2021

Netflix hasn't confirmed that it's definitely happening, but given the monumentally positive reception for the first two chapters, we'd say the chances are looking pretty good.

"We'll see what Netflix wants to do with this franchise," Sy told Deadline. "The first bet that we won was to bring this character to life and to create a franchise. The franchise exists and now it's up to Netflix to see what they want to do with it. We'll see what they propose, but this is a character that is super enjoyable and who I would take great pleasure in revisiting tomorrow if I can."

Here's everything you need to know about Lupin season three.

Lupin season 3 potential release date: When will it air?

The first instalment arrived at the beginning of January this year, with the second landing on June 11. Best case scenario for the next batch of episodes would be mid-2022, unless they secretly filmed the lot, in which case we could be looking at another January premiere for the first part (spoiler: they didn't, and we weren't).

But this, as you can tell, is guesswork because we don't know for sure. As soon as we have word, we'll update this page.

Lupin season 3 cast: Who's in it?

Lupin is, without question, Sy's show, so we'd expect him and his bags of charm to return as Assane.

"We were talking about making a show with Gaumont, the show's producer, and they asked me: 'What would be your dream role?' And it didn't take long for me to say Lupin," he told The Hollywood Reporter.

"It's a classic book for us, he's the guy, you know? And for an actor, he's like the best toy you could get. Because you can do anything with him... It gave me the chance to do everything. I can be funny. There's drama. There's action. All with the same character."

Then there's Claire (Ludivine Sagnier), their son Raoul (Etan Simon), Assane's best friend Benjamin (Antoine Gouy), and potentially detective Guedira (Soufiane Guerrab), his fellow Lupin enthusiast Lieutenant Sofia Belkacem (Shirine Boutella) and Capitaine Romain Laugier (Vincent Londez).

Assane's father Babakar (Fargass Assandé) is also likely to appear in flashbacks, as are young Assane, Claire and Benjamin.

There's also Hubert Pellegrini (Hervé Pierre) and corrupt police commissioner Gabriel Dumont (Vincent Garanger), who were both handcuffed in the back of police cars at the end of season two (more on that later). It remains to be seen whether their story is now over. If Pellegrini is out of the picture, we wouldn't expect his daughter Juliette (Clotilde Hesme) to return either.

And co-creator George Kay also told Variety that we should expect some new faces, too.

Lupin season 3 plot: What will happen?

"We're talking about that right now. We have a lot of ideas and things that we want to do and say, but we're still in the writing process," Omar Sy told EW.

As Lupin's second outing drew to a close, Assane finally exposed Pellegrini's crimes to the masses and restored his father's name, with the morally bankrupt businessman arrested by the authorities in the finale. The police now have irrefutable evidence of his wrongdoing, which doesn't guarantee that he'll spend the rest of his life behind bars – but there's a possibility that Pellegrini will play no further role in this tale.

That said, Assane may have had his revenge in season two – but Pellegrini isn't out of the woods yet.

"It depends on what's gonna happen next for Pellegrini and everybody else, and even for him. Because it's not completely finished. He's done most of the work, but it's not completely finished. When episode 10 finished, there's still some questions that we didn't have answered," Sy told EW.

He could, of course, walk free yet again and return with an even greater desire to ruin Assane. But that ending is the perfect springboard for creators Kay and François Uzan to launch a fresh yarn, with plenty of room for Assane to showcase his delectable array of trickery and guile, with a hoard of new disguises to boot.

He has now gone into hiding after a brief but moving farewell between himself, Claire and their son on "Raoul's bridge". But the man himself said that he'll be back, so we'll hold him to that.

When he does return, we'd hope to see a new foe for him to go up against. Perhaps Pellegrini is part of a larger organisation, the upper echelons of which are most displeased that Assane razed their most recent efforts to amass great wealth to the ground. We know that Pellegrini has a direct line to the Minister of the Interior, which he used to wriggle his way out of police custody when he was initially arrested. Does this go right to the top?

Or will we meet another unwelcome face from Assane's past? The possibilities are great and varied.

Kay told Variety that he will "create a new adventure that will run forward from there and further unsettle Assane". He also said that he wants to keep the story set in Paris, and will continue to unpack Assane's history.

Kay has also teased the possibility of a Sherlock Holmes crossover given that Lupin and Sherlock (or Herlock Sholmès) meet in the source material.

"Speaking really honestly, there have been [discussions]," he said (via RadioTimes). "There's some ideas circling around that, that I have, that I'm really interested to explore."

He added: "The Arsene Lupin fanbase, which is evident within the show, would have to lock antlers with the Sherlock Holmes fanbase – you want to take it to a really meta level. Having that kind of level of fun would be really cool, and it's not something we haven't discussed."

Whether he faces Holmes or not, you can expect Lupin to have more help if the show continues into season three and beyond.

"When you read the books, Lupin has a lot of accomplices," Sy said to EW. "But [in the show] he had the one, which is Benjamin, but he needs people, [so he] hires them like he does with [Philippe Courbet]. So it was interesting to have that. And I think it's going to be more interesting maybe one day having like a big cast with a lot of people.

"Because the thing is just being the mastermind, you cannot do everything by yourself, you need people. It's also one of his skills, to bring people with him. It was really cool to play with that. I think it's a good aspect of Lupin."

When a show hits its third season, it can sometimes go darker – but don't expect Lupin to suddenly turn violent when it returns.

"The whole show we were very, very careful to not have our hero be violent. So there is no violence from Assane, he does what he does, but without the violence. One of the rules of Lupin is [he's] never violent, never killed anyone. And we wanted in that moment for you to think, 'Maybe he's gonna do it.' Because it's a lot. It's about his dad, and all these years waiting and having that moment with all this anger, maybe something's gonna happen.

"And maybe he's gonna switch on the other side. And why not? That was really possible. But then having him coming back into himself, being smarter than that, and being able to control his anger — we wanted to have that moment and make the audience think that maybe he's going to do it."

Lupin season 3 trailer: When can I watch it?

Trailers usually arrive in the month leading up to the premiere, so once we know that info, we'll have a better idea.

Expect a lot more of the same...
