Netflix confirms Drake-produced Top Boy will return in 2019

Netflix confirms Drake-produced Top Boy will return in 2019”

Rapper Drake is reviving the British drug-dealer drama via Netflix - and the stars are back on board.

Top Boy starred Ashley Walters, Kane Robinson, Shone Romulus and Malcolm Kamulete.

Netflix is yet to release exact details of the upcoming storyline but confirmed the series will run for 10 episodes.

Top Boy's original creative team will return, with Ronan Bennett set to pen the script and executive produce via his Easter Partisan banner alongside Charles Steel and Alasdair Flind of Cowboy Films and Yann Demange (a frontrunner to direct the next Bond film). 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.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the third series will pick up with Dushane (played by Walters) returning to his former London home to try and reclaim his place as "top boy".

"My taste in television or movies is always kind of similar to my approach to music, which is, I like when people really hit the nail on the head with real human emotions", he said.

Netflix had already secured global streaming rights to the series, but this is the second time it has continued development of a major Channel 4 programme by turning it into an Original production.

"We couldn't be more excited for Netflix members around the world and a new generation of fans to discover the authentic, raw and real world of Top Boy", added Cindy Holland, vice president, Original Content for Netflix. However, ruthless gang-leader Jamie has different ideas. Netflix have noted how Drake's passion for the show "drove its resurrection".
