The world’s greatest thief really is shooting for global appeal!

Earlier today, voice actor Richard Epcar (Ghost in the Shell, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders) hinted at a return to his role as Jigen in an English adaptation of Lupin the 3rd Part 4.

Epcar later replied to a fan’s questions, noting that Tony Oliver will return as Lupin, Michelle Ruff will again portray Fujiko, and Lex Lang will voice Goemon.

According to Epcar, Dan Lorge will not return to voice Zenigata in the new dub.

Lupin The 3rd Part 4 is the first mainline entry into the Lupin anime franchise in thirty years. While Lupin and company did appear in numerous films and spinoffs like 2012’s Lupin The Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, this is the first actual Lupin TV series since the second title ended on September 28, 1985.

The series aired on Italian network Italia 1 from August 30 through November 30. The series started airing on Japanese TV on October 5. Lupin the 3rd Part 4 is currently slated to run for 24 episodes on Japanese TV.

Crunchyroll is currently streaming Lupin the 3rd Part 4 as it airs in Japan.
