Drake to Bring Back British Drama 'Top Boy' on Netflix”

This third season of Top Boy will premiere on Netflix in 2019.

After confirming his intention to bring back the acclaimed United Kingdom crime drama Top Boy for a third season on Netflix, premiering in 2019, Drake revealed that he has more productions in the works: an untitled TV series based on an undisclosed magazine story with Anonymous Content (the production company behind Mr. Robot), and a project with film studio A24, which just released The Florida Project, a film Drake says he loved. Last year, it emerged that Drake had swooped in and bought the rights from Channel 4, having earlier watched the show on YouTube and shared his appreciation for the series on Instagram.

If you haven't seen the show, it's easy to compare it to a British version of The Wire because it deals with the lives of drug dealers, many of them young, and the consequences of living this lifestyle and the inherent dangers it brings. Bennett will also executive produce with Charles Steel, Alasdair Flind and Yann Demange, according to THR. Entertainer-producer Drake and business partner Adel "Future" Nur, along with Maverick Carter and Jamal Henderson for SpringHill Entertainment, have also signed on to executive produce.

Drake is now producing documentary feature The Carter Effect, about former National Basketball Association star Vince Carter.

In a thread on Netflix UK's Twitter the streaming service announced that they will bringing back the gritty Brit drama in 2019. Netflix's announcement of the new chapter confirmed series stars Ashley Walters and Kane Robinson are reprising their roles. However, it ended after two series in 2013 to the disappointment of its many fans.
