Ashley Walters is to reprise his role as Dushane.

'Top Boy' is set to return to our screens after sealing a multi-season deal with Netflix.

According to Radio Times, the streaming service are planning to make two more series of the programme, which previously aired on Channel 4 between 2011 and 2013.

Ashley Walters is reportedly in demand to reprise his role as drug dealer Dushane in the London-based crime series.

The show’s writer and creator Ronan Bennett is thought to be involved in the script as in previous seasons.

In 2016, rumours began swirling that Canadian hitmaker Drake, a long-time fan of the show, was in talks to direct season three.

Of the revival, Walters previously said: "What I can say is that, behind the scenes, there's some serious work going on to make it happen, and between a lot of good people too. 

"So it's going to happen at some point."

He added: "Drake is involved. He's coming on board to help and try and push the situation forward.

Netflix declined to comment but it is understood that the project is due to be announced imminently.
