Here’s where you recognise the cast of Netflix’s Top Boy from

There are some fresh new faces in this season

Netflix’s revival of Top Boy has an unreal cast- Micheal Ward, Jasmine Jobson, and Hope Ikpoku to name a few. The second season or fourth if you are a true Top Boy Summerhouse fan comes out on Friday.

The last season ended with the police’s undercover operation to take down Dushane as he became the new top boy of Summerhouse estate. After landing himself in prison, Jamie is met with a proposition by Dushane, which he seems to have taken in this new season.

The cast is filled with familiar actors, with this season bringing in some fresh new faces. Here is where you may recognise the season two/four cast of Top Boy from:
