Netflix has revealed the Top Boy trailer and announced that the series will launch on the streaming service on September 13, 2019. Watch the Top Boy trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments.

Ashley Walters (Bulletproof, Sugarhouse) and Kane Robinson reprise their roles as Dushane and Sully, joined by newcomer Michael Ward as Jamie (The A List, Blue Story). The series features musical artists Simbi Ajikawo (Little Simz) and David Omoregie (Dave). Shone Romulus (Out) returns as Dris and Ashley Thomas (24: Legacy, The Night Of, Black Mirror) returns as Jermaine. New Top Boy cast members include Lisa Dwan (Trust), Jasmine Jobson (Lie Low, Obey), Kadeem Ramsay (Sex Education, Blue Story), Saffron Hocking (London Kills, White Gold), Kola Bokinni (Hunter Killer, Black Mirror) and Hope Ikpoku.

The original series aired on broadcast in the UK before its end in 2013; both seasons are now globally available on Netflix. The next chapter, consisting of ten all-new episodes, is created and written by Ronan Bennett. Daniel West is also a writer. The series is executive produced by the original creative team — Charles Steel and Alasdair Flind (for Cowboy Films), Ronan Bennett (for Easter Partisan) and Yann Demange. The new installment is 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 (Micheal Ward), the young, hungry and ruthless gang leader whose ambitions leave no place for Dushane and Sully.

Top Boy is directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green (Monsters and Men), Nia DaCosta (Candyman, Little Woods), Aneil Karia (Pure) and Brady Hood (Endeavour). The series features original music by Brian Eno and additional music by Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante.
