Netflix Confirms 'Top Boy' Is Getting Another Season

Netflix Confirms 'Top Boy' Is Getting Another Season

Fans of Top Boy, get excited: we've just had confirmation that the gritty crime drama is returning to Netflix for a second season.

The streaming platform confirmed the news on Twitter, writing: "Confirmed: Top Boy s2 is happening!!", adding that production begins this spring.

It also confirmed that key characters Dushane and Sully, along with new faces on the Summerhouse block, Jamie and Shelley, would be returning.

Last year, the London-based drama was rebooted by the streaming giant after a successful two series on Channel 4, returning to screens for a third season in October 2019.

It saw Ashley Walters and Kane Robinson reprise their roles as 'Dushane' and 'Sully', Shone Romulus return as 'Dris' and Ashley Thomas as 'Jermaine', while UK grime stars Dave and Simbi Ajikawo 'Little Simz' also joined the cast.

The 10-part series saw Dushane return to London to reclaim his throne in the drug market, teaming up with his longtime collaborator and friend, Sully, who had returned from prison.

However, they were now faced with competition, as young and ambitious gang leader Jamie (Michael Ward) had taken his own slice of the market, with no plans to give it back without a fight.

While the news of a fourth season will no doubt delight fans, executive producer Drake kind of spilled the beans back in January.

The 'Hotline Bling' rapper confirmed that the crime drama would be coming back to screens in a comment posted on GRM Daily's Instagram page.

He was responding to a photo which celebrated the success of the new Top Boy released in 2019, which asked: "Will we see a new series in 2020?"

In an unexpected move, the rapper replied under the post: "Of course".

Canadian hitmaker Drake was integral to bringing the beloved show in 2019, six years after it last aired on Channel 4 under the series name Summerhouse.

The first series was broadcast in the UK in 2011 with the second in 2013, and both seasons are now available to watch globally on Netflix.

The first and second series were just four episodes long, while third season was comprised of 10 instalments.

Spring can't come sooner.
