“We’re back. TOP BOY Season 2 begins filming this spring” a tweet from the show’s official account confirmed.

Top Boy returned in 2019 after six years away, with Drake helping revive the show after it was unexpectedly cancelled by Channel 4 in 2011.

GRM Daily previously shared the news that the first returning season of the show was one of Netflix’s most popular TV releases in 2019 on their Instagram page, captioning the post: “Will we see a new series in 2020?”

Drake commented on the post, confirming good news. “Of course,” he wrote.

In an interview with NME, Michael Ward explained what makes Top Boy such urgent viewing.

“There’s nothing else like Top Boy,” Ward said. “When Top Boy first came about it was the first of its kind. When it went away, there was still nothing like it. Now it’s back, and still the only thing of its kind. It’s the only TV show that tells our story from the UK.”
