Netflix is experiencing its own real-life robberies.
Products of streamers for Crown and Lupine was robbed suddenly within the past week.

Several vehicles of production were disrupted and more than 350 items were taken away. Many of the items are lavish props used to decorate the popular British royal period TV series, such as a replica Fabergé egg and a gold and silver lampstand. “We can confirm antiques have been stolen and we hope that they are found and returned safely,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement. “Replacement parts will be provided, with no expectation that filming will be retained.”
This morning, a representative for Netflix confirmed an AFP report that it is based in Paris Lupine was also held. The news agency reported about 20 masked thieves broke into the set on February 25, threw fireworks and stole equipment worth about $330,000. Ironically, this hit series is a robbery drama that stars Omar Sy as master thief Assane Diop. Sy is said to have been at the scene of the robbery.
Netflix said in a statement, “An incident occurred on February 25 while filming the upcoming season of Lupine. Our cast and crew are all safe and there are no injuries.” The third season of the French horror film has begun production again.
Both incidents are under investigation and it is unclear if there is a connection between the two robberies.
