Lupin is a French show starring Omar Sy as Assane Diop, a man whose life is turned upside down as a teenager when his father is wrongfully accused of stealing a necklace that once belonged to Marie Antoinette.

Here are all the reasons to make it your next binge:

1. It’s a heist show with a personal twist.

4. The show’s premise is inspired by the classic French novels about Arsène Lupin by Maurice LeBlanc…

6. Come for the heist, stay for stunning Parisian backdrops.

7. Finally, the first part is only five episodes long — the perfect amount to binge-watch.
