Top Boy made a successful return to Netflix in 2019 with a third season, six years after Channel 4 had shelved the show.
After many delays due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the eagerly awaited fourth season (its second as a Netflix Original) is finally here!
Dushane (Ashley Walters) and Sully (Kane Robinson) continue to build their drug business on Summerhouse territory in Season 4 of Top Boy.
When is Top Boy Season 4 going to be released?
Season 4 (technically season 2) of Top Boy is set to premiere on Netflix on March 18th, 2022.
Ashley Walters teased a promotional poster for what seems to be the fourth season of Top Boy at the end of January 2022.
The face of Walters’ character Dushane is depicted on the poster, with the words ‘before’ scrawled across it in graffiti, and the release date is later verified.
“We know you’ve been waiting for the Top Boy date for a long time, so we placed it up on London’s biggest billboard to set your mind at ease. TOP BOY WILL RETURN ON MARCH 18TH “Netflix sent out a tweet.
Where does Top Boy take place?
Top Boy is mostly shot in Kent, despite being set in Hackney (Thanet, Ramsgate). Given the lack of information about Season 4, we can only presume a return to familiar places as well as ones that have never been seen before in the series.
The historic Blackfriars Crown Court was hired for season four filming, hinting towards legal scenes in the next instalment. Given the shocking news that Dushane is being investigated by undercover cops, this isn’t good news…
Season 4 of Top Boy contains spoilers.
Dushane offered a partnership with Jamie by the end of the third season, and Jamie is currently in prison after taking the fall for a crime he didn’t commit in order to protect his family.
The connection between Dushane and Sully is already strained due to Dushane’s framing of Jamie’s brothers, so the new cooperation could add to the stress.
Sarah and Lee, who are addicts, were revealed to be undercover agents probing Dushane, therefore the current top boy will most certainly feel the heat in season four.
What is the story behind Top Boy?
In a nutshell, it follows heroin traffickers Dushane (Ashley Walters) and Sully (Kane ‘Kano’ Robinson) on the Summerhouse estate. Of course, as their reputation and money account expand, so do their difficulties, and they’re confronted with life-or-death threats from competing gangs and organisations, as well as the law.
As their circumstances vary during the show, the relationship between these two central characters evolves. To stay ahead of the game and safe from anyone attempting to usurp their power, the couple will need to keep their wits about them.
Who’s in Season 4 of Top Boy?
Kano (actual name Kane Robinson) will reprise his role as Sully, while Ashley Walters will return as the show’s patriarch Dushane.
Jamie will be played by Michael Ward, Shelley will be played by Little Simz, and Jasmine Jobson will reprise her role as the fearsome Jaq.
Jamie’s brothers Aaron and Steph are played by Hope Ikpoku Jr. and Araloyin Oshunremi, respectively, while Atz is played by Keiyon Cook.
Of course, there are some characters who are unlikely to return. Jason, played by Ricky Smart, died tragically in a house fire in episode four of the previous season. Dris was shot by Sully in the final episode after betraying Dushane (although fans have pointed out that while we heard the gunshot, we didn’t actually see Sully shoot him).
After the episode aired, Dave’s portrayal of the crazed escapee Modie received a lot of applause. Sully’s acid attack left him half blind, and he was shot by police when his dangerous driving left him out in the open.
Ashley Walters, Kano, Michael Ward, Little Simz, Jasmine Jobson, Hope Ikpoku Jr., Jolade Obasola, Kadeem Ramsay, Saffron Hocking, and Araloyin Oshunremi are among the returning cast members, with a few new additions.
Adwoa Aboah will portray Becks, Erin Kellyman will play Pebbles, and Nolay will play Mandy, a character who looks to have connections to several of the cast.
