Netflix are set to revive gritty London drama Top Boy for a third season.
According to a report by the Radio Times, the persistent stories of its revival over the past few years can now come to a close.
Hitting screens in 2011, with a follow up series arriving two years later, Top Boy was praised for its accurate portrayal of London gang culture and inner city life, counting Drake amongst its many supporters.
The Canadian superstar has long been reported to be behind plans to bring back Top Boy with Walters revealing to Complex that Drake was “coming on board to help and try and push the situation forward.”
Drake has been a notable fan of the show.

It’s believed filming will begin once Walters is through with Sky1 drama Bulletproof, alongside Noel Clarke. Lionsgate UK also recently announced a partnership with Clarke’s Unstoppable Productions to help develop and produce multiple seasons of Clarke’s breakout film trilogy Kidulthood, into eight to ten 60-minute episodes.
