Is Lupin dubbed on Netflix?
The answer to this question is yes, and no. Lupin is originally a French-language show. Hence, the original audio is in French while English subtitles are also available.

This option is available for viewers who are non-french speakers and wish to enjoy Lupin in English so that they don’t have to read subtitles.

This was discovered when Netflix uploaded the trailer for Lupin on its YouTube channel, which is was dubbed in English.
