Top Boy is set to return to Netflix next month for its fourth series, after the streamer picked up the cancelled show after its two series run on Channel 4.
Announced via a huge billboard at London’s BFI IMAX, and confirmed on the series’ official Twitter page, Top Boy is set to return on 18 March. Ashley Walters and Kano will reprise their roles as Dushane and Sully, with Michael Ward and Simbi Ajikawo (Little Simz) also returning as Jamie and Shelley.
Written by Ronan Bennett, the series follows the bitter turf war between rival gangs in Summerhouse, a fictional housing estate in Hackney. Last series ended with Dushane visiting his young rival Jamie in prison to offer an ultimatum: he would help secure Jamie’s release if he worked for him on the outside.
Joining the cast for the upcoming series will Erin Kellyman as Pebbles and grime artist NoLay as Mandy. Model Adwoa Aboah will make her acting debut on the show as Becks.
Returning to the cast will be Hope Ikpoku Jnr and Araloyin Oshunrem as Jamie’s younger brothers Aaron and Stefan, Jolade Obasola as Amma, Jasmine Jobson and Kadeem Ramsay as Jamie’s gang members Jaq and Kit, and Saffron Hocking as Lauryn.
