After a long and hard six year wait, Top Boy is back. This time it's on Netflix and there are a lot of new characters. Here's a rundown of the Top Boy cast list to refresh your memory and get you up to date with all the newbies.

Obviously some of the Top Boy OGs are back in their roles and don't need much in terms of an explanation. But there are a few fresh faces you might recognise from other roles, too.
