‘Top Boy’ to Return for New Season on Netflix

Ten New Episodes Ordered for 2019

British drama “Top Boy,” which follows two drug dealers at a public housing estate in East London, will return for a new season on Netflix. The original series aired two seasons on broadcast in the UK before ending in 2013; both seasons are now globally available on Netflix.

The next chapter of “Top Boy,” consisting of ten all-new episodes, will be written by Ronan Bennett and executive produced by the original creative team — Charles Steel and Alasdair Flind (for Cowboy Films), Ronan Bennett (for Easter Partisan) and Yann Demange — and will premiere as a Netflix original series in 2019. In addition, the new installment will be executive produced by entertainer and producer Drake and his business partner Adel “Future” Nur, along with Maverick Carter and Jamal Henderson for SpringHill Entertainment.

The logline: 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.
