Netflix dropped the trailer for the long-awaited third season of “Top Boy” Tuesday, which is produced by Drake and will see Ashley Walters and Kane Robinson reprise their roles as Dushane and Sully, respectively, and joined by newcomer Micheal Ward as Jamie.
The original series aired on broadcast in the U.K. for two seasons from 2011-2013; both seasons are now globally available on Netflix. Here’s the description for the new 10-episode season of “Top Boy”:
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 (Micheal Ward), the young, hungry and ruthless gang leader whose ambitions leave no place for Dushane and Sully.
