Will There Be Top Boy Season 5?
According to the show’s dramatic season 4 finale, Top Boy season 5 may be on the horizon at some point in the future.
As Dushane strives to grow his drug empire abroad in the fourth season of the crime thriller, which has recently arrived on Netflix, the action takes place on a global scale.
It’s safe to say that this is the show’s most ambitious season yet, with surprises around every corner from the get-go.
A major revelation and character death that no one expected in the Top Boy finale set the stage for some dramatic storylines involving Dushane and Sully in the future!
In the meantime, when could we expect the fifth season of Top Boy? Here’s the most recent information about the acclaimed series’ future.
Top Boy Season 5 Renewal Status
Netflix has yet to confirm the fifth season of Top Boy.
It was announced in November of 2017 that Netflix had ordered a new season of Top Boy, which had previously broadcast on Channel 4 for two seasons between 2011 and 2013.
Netflix has announced that the second batch of new episodes will be released on 26th February 2020, a little over five months after the first batch of new episodes debuted on 13th September 2019.
It’s safe to assume that Dushane and Sully aren’t done yet, given the popularity of the previous two seasons and the cliffhanger ending to the most recent season.
Top Boy Season 5 Expected Release Date
Netflix has yet to confirm a release date for Top Boy season 5, but if they do, it won’t be until at least 2023. The good news is that, if Top Boy’s fifth season is approved, fans won’t have to wait as long as they have in the past.
It was originally planned that production on the fourth season of the show would begin in the early months of 2020, but the COVID-19 outbreak prompted a postponement, But the show’s stars Walters and Robinson confirmed that they had resumed filming in December.
Despite the 30-month gap between seasons due to a delay in filming, if Netflix is quick to commission more Top Boy, the show may be back on our screens in 2023.
Top Boy Season 5 Expected Cast
If Top Boy makes a comeback, we may count on the following cast members to be back:
Ashley Walters as Dushane
Kane Robinson as Sully
Jasmine Jobson as Jaq
Simbi Ajikawo (‘Little Simz’) as Shelley
Saffron Hocking as Lauryn
No-Lay as Mandy
Adwoa Aboah as Becks
Lisa Dwan as Lizzie
Kadeem Ramsay, will not be returning as Kit, and Ats’ mother Amma (Jolade Obasola), who was deported from the UK early in the fourth season, is also unlikely to return.
Ashley Walters, the show’s executive producer, has confirmed that Ra’Nell (Malcolm Kamulete), who appeared in the show’s first two seasons but did not return for the Netflix relaunch, would not be making a comeback any time soon, according to an interview with Walters.
Top Boy Season 5 Expected Plot
Though there is no official information as of yet regarding the fifth season, Netflix’s latest season of Top Boy leaves open a lot of storylines that could be revisited in future episodes.
Obviously, any new season would have to deal with the fallout from Sully killing Jamie and the events that followed. Will Sully’s actions renew hostilities between him and Dushane that the latter has revealed to the former that he is grooming Jamie to be his successor?
Will Jamie’s brothers react in any way to the gruesome murder? Will Stef seek retribution? Is Aaron, who has always resisted being lured into his brother Jamie’s illicit lifestyle, now condemned to follow in his footsteps?
While Curtis (Howard Charles), the show’s current villain, was killed off at the end of season four, the rest of Curtis’ crew—including his violent sister—escaped, with Sully warning them never to return to London. What will happen if they follow this advice, or will they return to seek payback on Lauryn and her sister Jaq?
Dushane’s health was a recurring theme in the most recent season, although the drug kingpin appeared to be suffering from panic attacks. Top Boy’s return is certain to further explore this topic, and we can’t believe that Sully’s actions have made Dushane any less stressed.
