"Inspector Dupin" achieves record-breaking ratings in Germany

The beloved Inspector Dupin series continues to captivate audiences with its twelfth installment, Inspector Dupin XII - Brittany’s Glory, garnering unprecedented success on German television. Premiering last week on ARD, the latest part of the movie cycle attracted a remarkable 6.61 million viewers, securing a market share of 26.9%. This milestone not only positioned it as the most watched program of all German linear TV channels that day but also established it as the most successful episode in the history of Inspector Dupin, even surpassing its predecessors.


This latest achievement represents a significant increase in viewership, attracting nearly 800,000 more viewers than the eleventh film in the series, which itself was a standout with a 22.2% market share and 5.87 million viewers. Hailed as "an incredible success story" by the Süddeutsche Zeitung, the Inspector Dupin saga shows no signs of slowing down. Fans can look forward to the next part of Jean-Luc Bannalec's bestselling novels, which will be adapted into a new episode in 2025.
