Top Boy is back and the new series is going to be on Netflix!!
Drake debuted the trailer at his concert
It’s official, the third season of British TV drama Top Boy is coming. The show will be coming back for a third season, and this time it will be aired on Netflix!!
Drake shared the trailer for the new series at one of his concerts. The singer has always been a fan of the Channel 4 show, that was cancelled back in 2012, so much so he bought the rights to it in 2016.
The TV crime drama was popular during its first two seasons, but didn’t get renewed for a third season. That’s when Drake offered to pay for the production of it himself. Hero.
Starting his stretch of concerts in London, Drake debuted the trailer for Top Boy season three. He took a minute out of the show to play the teaser video, exclusively for people at the O2 arena, and the reaction from the crowd pretty much sums up how everyone is feeling.
Here’s everything we know about the return of Top Boy.
Who’s going to be in the cast of Top Boy season three?
Since Drake’s announcement, the full cast list has also been released. The new series will feature Ashley Walters as drug dealer Dushane, Kano (Kane Robison) as Sully, rapper Dave (David Orobosa Omoregie), and Little Simz.
When asked about Drake’s involvement with the show back in 2017, Ashley Walters told The Mirror: “We met up to start talking about the show and we are working out a role for him. He loves acting, of course he wanted a part. He’s going to be really hands on and is getting stuck into it.”
