The delay was in part to a real heist that happened while shooting Lupin part 3. During the production of Part 3, shooting was briefly halted for a day last year after a robbery that saw approximately 20 people break onto the set and steal an estimated €300,000 ($333,000) worth of equipment.

In Part 3, Sy reprises his role as Assane Diop, a character inspired by the world-famous gentleman thief and master of disguise, Arsène Lupin. The cast will also feature the return of Ludivine Sagnier and Clotilde Hesme, among others.

Produced by Gaumont, “Lupin” is a contemporary adaptation created by George Kay (“Criminal,” “Killing Eve”) in collaboration with François Uzan (“Family Business”), based on the iconic novels by French writer Maurice LeBlanc, who created the character in 1905.

“Lupin” has been a global hit for Netflix, with Part 1 believed to have been watched by over 70 million households within its first 28 days on the platform. It was also the first French language show to rank No. 1 in many territories, including the U.S. Sy also served as creative producer on some episodes of the show.
