George Kay, the creator of the show, also hinted towards a possible Sherlock Holmes crossover. He said this during an interview with Radio times;
“Speaking really honestly, there have been [discussions. There are some ideas circling around that, that I have, that I’m really interested to explore. 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.”
However, according to Kay, the upcoming season might be a reboot for the series. He told Variety;
“create a new adventure that will run forward from there and further unsettle Assane”
Omr Sy will return as Assane. There is no Lupin without Sy. He is behind the success of the show.
“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 said this in an interview with 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.”
