Drake’s favorite television drama is indeed returning. Today (Nov. 8), Netflix confirmed that Top Boy will be returning in 2019 with the Toronto rapper serving as an executive producer.
Reports the Hollywood Reporter:
The rapper/actor/producer is teaming with Netflix to revive Top Boy, the British crime drama that aired on Channel 4 in the U.K. for two seasons before ending in 2013.
The streamer, which retains global rights to the first two seasons of Top Boy, will premiere the third season in 2019 as a Netflix original.
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). Drake will exec produce alongside his business partner, Adel “Future” Nur, with Maverick Carter and Jamal Henderson for LeBron James’ SpringHill Entertainment banner.
Yep, Dushane and Sully will be back.
Not familiar, Seasons 1 and 2 are streaming on Netflix—we highly suggest you catch up.
Also worth noting, Drake is on the cover of the Hollywood Reporter. Besides his forays into film and TV, this means the 6 God has gotta be dropping a new album soon, no?
