What is Top Boy about?

Set in a housing estate in Hackney, London, Top Boy follows the lives of various drug gangs and the rising tension between them.

The name derives from their desire to become "top boy" when it comes to dealing drugs, with the main character Dushane fighting for position.

The debut episode of season 3 opens with Dushane (Ashley Walters) returning to London to reclaim his status as the drug gang's leader, following his exile. Sully (Kane Robsinson) also returns from prison and the pair join forces to re-establish their authority.

However, when they return home, they are met with Jamie: a ruthless young gang leader who won't go down without a fight.

The latest instalment of Top Boy is scheduled to drop on the streaming site on Friday 13 September, 2019.

How many episodes will be in the new series?

In total, there will be 10 episodes in season 3. All ten will be available to stream on Netflix in one go, so you can binge to your heart's content.
