NETFLIX show Lupin is proving a hit in terms of sex appeal and statistics as it secures more than 70million viewers within the first 28 days of its release.

The series, which is a contemporary re-reading of the Gentleman Thief, stars French-born actor Omar Sy who has been dubbed a "sexy con man with a heart" by adoring fans.

Omar's sex appeal may go some way to explaining Lupin's rapid acceleration to the top of the Netflix charts, bypassing hits The Queen's Gambit and Bridgerton to become Netflix's biggest French international hit to date.

With Lupin's second season scheduled to drop "later this year", it seems fans will always be able to get their French fix.

The Intouchables actor Omar, 42, meanwhile has stolen hearts with his role as protagonist Assane Diop.

His character's life was turned around when his father died after being accused of a crime he didn't commit.


A total of 25 years later, Assane adopts the identity of fictional master thief and master of disguise Arsène Lupin, Gentleman Burglar, as his inspiration to avenge his father.

Yet through the gritty action, fans have flooded Twitter with their adoration for Omar.

One took to the social media site to gush: "Guys, watch #Lupin on Netflix. I’m halfway through and it is incredible. Sexy con man w/ a heart, set in Paris."

Another wrote: "Seven minutes into lupin on netflix and its already a masterpiece… sexy man hates the rich and wants to steal from them? a work of art."




A third then wrote: "Lupin on Netflix is so good and it helps that the main character is so sexy😭😭" before another fizzed: "Amid a Lockdown and a State of Emergency, #Lupin and Omar Sy was just what I needed for a cheer. Can’t wait for S2! It is love!"

Another surmised: "Watching Lupin on Netflix and seeing Omar Sy’s gorgeous face reminds me of the time my love for Senegalese men be wan run me streets. All they bring to the table is their accent & deceit."

One then concluded: "Netflix has been killing it with the new shows lately. First Bridgerton and now Lupin (with the insanely gorgeous Omar Sy). I’m loving their new slate of shows."

The entire series of Lupin is now available on Netflix.
