Netflix has been teasing that the release date of Lupine has been hidden in plain sight for the past few days, and thanks to some due diligence on our part, we’ve cracked the code and can reveal that Netflix plans to release season 3 in early October 2023.

As a quick reminder, here’s the plot of the upcoming third entry in Lupine:

“Now in hiding, Assane must learn to live away from his wife and son. With the suffering they endure because of him, Assane can’t take it anymore and decides to return to Paris to make them a crazy proposal: leave France and start a new life in another place. But the ghosts of the past are never far away, and an unexpected return will turn their plans upside down.

Numerous European Netflix accounts began to tease that the release date is open. Numerous billboards across the continent are teasing the comeback. netflix germany even tweeted that they (translated into English), “Actually, we wanted to share the release date for Lupine Part 3 here, but apparently someone had other plans…”

as we know Lupine Season 3 is coming to Netflix in October 2023

The clues for the code actually lie within the Netflix interface itself, with recently updated avatars for Lupine have numbers superimposed on the various avatars associated with the show. I first noticed this a few days ago because my Nan has the dog’s profile picture, but I didn’t give it much thought until recently.

So, assuming two of the numbers represent the year, «23», that leaves the numbers «1», «0», «5», «0», and the «!».

Since there’s no news on the show’s return as soon as May (05), with most reports and speculation suggesting a fall 2023 release, we’re stuck with «10/23/05!».

So we’ve cracked the code and Lupine will return for season 3 on October 5, 2023.
