The ten new episodes will be executive produced by Drake and Adel "Future" Nur, and the rapper debuted the trailer at his London show on Monday.
Ashley Walters (star of Bulletproof and Sugarhouse) and Kane Robinson (better known as grime star Kano) reprise their roles as 'Dushane' and 'Sully'.
They're joined by newcomer Micheal Ward (The A List, Blue Story) who will play 'Jamie' .
The series features music artists including Simbi Ajikawo as 'Little Simz', David Omoregie as 'Dave'. Shone Romulus (Out) returns as 'Dris' and Ashley Thomas (24: Legacy, The Night Of, Black Mirror) returns as 'Jermaine'.
Exciting new cast members include Lisa Dwan (Trust), Jasmine Jobson (Lie Low, Obey), Kadeem Ramsay (Sex Education, Blue Story), Saffron Hocking (London Kills, White Gold), Kola Bokinni (Hunter, Killer, Black Mirror) and Hope Ikpoku.
The original series was broadcast on UK television before it ended in 2013, and both seasons are now available to watch globally on streaming giant Netflix.
The next chapter was created and written by Ronan Bennett and co-written by Daniel West.
The new installment is executive produced by entertainer and producer Drake and his business partner Adel "Future" Nur, along with Maverick Carter and Jamal Henderson for SpringHill Entertainment.
Speaking about his inspiration for the show, creator and writer Ronan Bennett shared: "Ten years ago, I witnessed a 10-year-old boy dealing drugs outside my local supermarket. It made me question what was going on in my own community and led me to create Top Boy."
Series veteran Ashley Walters said: "Top Boy is a raw, real representation of street culture. It explores how these characters came to make the choices they make, and gives the audience a behind-the-scenes look as to what is happening on our streets today.
The new episodes pick up as Dushane (Ashley Walters) returns from exile to his home in London to reclaim his throne in the highly lucrative drug market.
He teams up with Sully (Kane Robinson), his spiritual brother, partner and sometime rival who is also returning to the same streets after his prison stint comes to an end.
Awaiting them both is Jamie (Micheal Ward), the young, hungry and ruthless gang leader whose ambitions leave no place for Dushane and Sully.
Top Boy is directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green (Monsters and Men), Nia DaCosta (Candyman, Little Woods), Aneil Karia (Pure, Lovesick) and Brady Hood (Endeavour). The series features original music by Brian Eno and additional music by Michael 'Mikey J' Asante.
