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.
“[Top Boy] came out in September. Before that, no one knew who I was,” says Ward.
Flashforward a mere six months and Ward, the breakout star of Netflix’s London crime drama, is nominated alongside the illustrious actors Stephen Graham (The Virtues) and Jared Harris (Chernobyl) for an RTS Programme Award.
