Stylized as an assault on a revenge story, the crime drama is inspired by novellas about a gentleman thief who outwits his goals, the law and the real villains. If you’re already a fan of Netflix’s Lupine, you’ll find that the show contains components that are similar to an ABC TV show.
Spoiler alert for Lupine Season 1.
“Lupine” is a story of revenge
Previously, Omar Sy’s Assane Diop had the impression that he was on a mission to pay off debts and recruiting those he owed to carry out a jewelry heist.
Soon viewers will learn why Assane decided to take on Arsène Lupin’s personality in life and for the greatest goodbye in his dishonest career. He wants to avenge his father, who was wrongly accused of a crime, an accusation that led to his death.
Assane borrows his plan from Maurice Leblanc’s stories about Arsène Lupine, a character who was a master of disguise and crime but still had enemies.
Assane is ready to fight with his hands, words, cunning and technology. He is adept at what he does, but he also helped uncover the conspiracy against his father. By the end of Lupine’s first season, some of the socialmediagossips he loves and who care about it will become drawn into the fight.
In 2011, ‘Revenge’ premiered on ABC with Emily VanCamp as Emily Thorne. The series is based on a famous book, The Count of Monte Cristo. In addition, both the books and the TV shows have themes of revenge, forgiveness, and injustice.
However, Emily’s real name was Amanda Clark and, like Assane, is growing up without parents after her father was jailed for a crime he did not commit. She later got revenge by posing as someone else.
Much like Lupine, the series had its savvy best friends who were both a buddy and a voice of reason (Nolan) for the main protagonist. It was tough, but it was fun to watch ‘Ems’ beat the Graysons.
