After a painfully long wait, one of the best crime drama series on Netflix is finally back. Top Boy has returned with its third season, and of course, it’s not taking long at all for people to stream all six new episodes. Now they’re left wondering if there will be more episodes coming in a Top Boy season 4 in the future. No worries! We’ve got you covered and shared everything we know about a potential fourth installment right below.

Top Boy is a British show created and written by Ronan Bennett. For its first two seasons, it aired on the British television network Channel 4 before being picked up by Netflix in 2017. Netflix bought licensing rights to the first two seasons and put them on its platform under the name Top Boy: Summerhouse. Then, in September 2019, the streamer dropped the first season of its version, followed by a second season in March 2022 and a third season in September 2023.

Set in the housing estates of east London, Top Boy tells the story of two young drug dealers Dushane and his friend/sometime rival Sully as they fight to take over the drug trade in their area.

Ashley Walters portrays the role of Dushane, while Kane Robinson plays Sully. Malcolm Kamulete, Shone Romulus, Micheal Ward, Jasmine Jobson, Simbi Ajikawo, Hope Ikpoku Jr., Araloyin Oshunremi, Lisa Dwan, and many others are also in the cast.

Unfortunately, there will not be a Top Boy season 4 on Netflix. When the streamer announced that the crime drama would be returning for a third season back in March 2022, it was also revealed that the third season would be the final season. So, we knew pretty early on that there wouldn’t be a fourth season.

Here’s what Top Boy stars Ashley Walters and Kane Robinson said about the show coming to an end:

"“For those that have followed the journey from the start, you will know how much this show means to everyone on our team and we wholeheartedly know how much it means to you. These characters have been a part of our lives for over a decade now and without everyone’s support we couldn’t have come this far.“Whilst the journeys of Dushane and Sully have remained at the core of the show, the new characters that have entered the world of Top Boy have become a key part of the show’s legacy, representing each new storyline in a raw, authentic way.“With all this being said, and staying true to our original goal, every story must have an ending and so season three will be our finale. A chance to come full circle and end the journey in the right way.“We’re very excited about what’s next and thank you for riding with us. We appreciate you. See you again soon.”"

We hate to say goodbye to the popular crime drama series, but we’re happy that we got to see the show wrap up.

Top Boy seasons 1-3 are streaming now only on Netflix.
