British gangster drama series “Top Boy” was originally a 4-part mini series on Channel 4 back in 2011. Two years later it was given a 2nd series but then it was cancelled. The series made it’s way onto Netflix throughout the globe and Canadian rapper Drake liked it so much he purchased the rights to it with a view to bring it back. There have been numerous rumours over the last few weeks but now Netflix have officially announced the return of “Top Boy” with a 3rd chapter made up of 10 episodes.
The new series will be written by the original creator and writer Ronan Bennett with Drake acting as executive producer. It will stream globally in 2019.
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 own form of exile – prison – comes to an end. Awaiting them both is Jamie, the young, hungry and ruthless gang leader whose ambitions leave no place for Dushane and Sully.
And so, in 2019, we’re going back to the Summerhouse Estate for an all-new chapter of @TopBoyNetflix.
