The highly anticipated new season of “Top Boy” has finally arrived, and it was definitely worth the wait. The British series follows Dushane (Ashley “Asher D” Walters) and his business partner, Sully (Kane “Kano” Robinson), as they work to sell drugs and build their empire in the London borough of Hackney. The series originally aired between 2011 and 2013 but was abruptly canceled. However, in 2019, it was revived by Drake after he became captivated by the characters and their stories.
Over the years, “Top Boy” has evolved and it’s hard to get enough. But since season four only has eight episodes, you might be thirsty for more action. If that is the case, consider binge-watching one of these six shows.
