Top Boy seasons 1 and 2 showcased a gritty look at gangs and drugs in south-east London. Season 1 focused on Dushane and Sully’s come up, while season 2 looked at the repercussions of Dushane’s decisions in the first season and his struggle to stay ahead of the game.
After being resurrected with help from Drake, the new season finds Dushane returning from exile to his London home to reclaim his throne in the dealing business. Linking up once more with his spiritual brother, partner and sometime rival Sully following his return from prison, they’ll find a young, hungry and ruthless gang leader in new character, Jamie, whose ambitions could spell trouble for Dushane and Sully.
