With Assane Diop’s quest for revenge against Hubert Pelligrini in shambles, and his son kidnapped, the wanted thief must now think up a new plan to expose Hubert’s crimes, while Hubert tries to lure Assane back into his trap with a symphony performance hosted by his foundation. Plus the trailer hints at many more high-speed car chases and hunts through the Paris catacombs to come.
“It’s the right show at the right time with the right guy,” director Louis Leterrier, who helmed the series’ first three episodes, told Rolling Stone in a profile of the show last month. “It just felt like a true escapist story in a time that needed an escape.”
