Picking up where the OG series left off in 2013, the narrative is based in and around London’s lucrative drug market. However, while ruthless gang culture does form a bulk of the show’s content, fans are applauding Top Boy for avoiding stereotypical pitfalls. Rather, social media is full of appreciation for it covering a myriad of issues including mental health, racism, poverty, and more.
The new season sees Ashley Walters and Kane Robinson reprising their roles as Dushane and Sully, who are joined by Micheal Ward (The A List), Simbi Ajikawo (aka musician Little Simz), and Ashley Thomas (Black Mirror), among others.
