Well, that was quick!

Italian television network Mediaset have confirmed that the new blue jacket Lupin III series will begin airing on Italia 1 from August 29th!

The show was previously scheduled for its Italian début on children's channel Boing, but it now has a prime time slot on Italia 1. The blue jacket show will air each Saturday from August 29th onwards.

New footage of the show is to be shown at the Cartoon Club event held next Saturday at 21:00 in Remini, Italy. Members of the Italian voice cast will be attending the event and demonstrating their dubbing skills up on stage.

What a time to be alive! We're so close to that air date now, Lupin fans! Is anybody attending the Cartoon festival in Remini? Let us know in the comments below!
