Media outlets are reporting that Netflix have renewed British crime drama Top Boy for a fourth season.
The first/third season of the revival takes place after the events of Top Boy: Summerhouse (what the original two series from Channel 4 has now been dubbed since Netflix revived the series). Once running the show at the Summerhouse housing estate in London, Dushane has fled to Jamaica, working at his cousin’s car-rental shop. When Dushane finds himself in a tricky situation with the local drug lord on the island named Sugar, he proposes that he returns to Summerhouse and sell his product. Unbeknownst to him however, is a hungry and ruthless young man named Jamie, sees an opportunity to become top boy in the area and gasps it with both hands. Meanwhile Sully comes to the end of his time served in prison and returns home trying to adapt to life outside again while Dushane proposes that his friend and sometimes rival teams up in order to take over once again.
Along with the renewal came the announcement that original cast members Ashley Walters, Kane ‘Kano’ Robinson, Michael Ward and Simbi ‘Little Simz’ Ajikawo will be reprising their roles as DuShane, Sully, Jaime and Shelley. It’s unclear who else will be returning from the first season at this moment in time, or what will be the premise of the second season, other than production is set to commence in Spring.
