DESCRIPTION:
(from Netflix's press release, November 2017) Netflix, the world's leading Internet entertainment service, will bring viewers a new chapter of Top Boy, the gripping, gritty British drama series following two drug dealers at a public housing estate in East London, created and written by Ronan Bennett. The original series aired two seasons on broadcast in the UK before ending in 2013; both seasons are now globally available on Netflix. The next chapter, consisting of ten all-new episodes, will be written by Ronan Bennett and executive produced by the original creative team -- Charles Steel and Alasdair Flind (for Cowboy Films), Ronan Bennett (for Easter Partisan) and Yann Demange -- and will premiere as a Netflix original series in 2019. In addition, the new installment will be executive produced by multi-faceted entertainer and producer Drake and his business partner Adel "Future" Nur, along with Maverick Carter and Jamal Henderson for SpringHill Entertainment. The new episodes pick up as Dushane (Ashley Walters) returns from exile to his home in London to reclaim his throne in the highly lucrative drug market. He teams up with Sully (Kane Robinson), his spiritual brother, partner, and sometime rival who is also returning to the same streets after his own form of exile - prison - comes to an end. Awaiting them both is Jamie, the young, hungry and ruthless gang leader whose ambitions leave no place for Dushane and Sully.
