This year, season four of Top Boy came out. It continued the high-stakes story of Dushane (Ashley Walters) and Sully (Kane “Kano” Robinson), two drug dealers in east London.
The new episodes were more extensive, better, and more intense than what had come before. They were also more emotional and ended with a twist that shocked us so much that we're still getting over it months later. So, what now?
Is Season 5 of Top Boy Confirmed Yet?
Yup! Shortly after the fourth season of Top Boy came out on Netflix, the fifth and last season was announced. Walters and Robinson, also executive producers, said in a joint statement that they were “very excited about what's next.”
“If you've been with us since the beginning, you know how much this show means to all of us on the team, and we know how much it means to you. These characters have been a part of our lives for over a decade, and we couldn't have gotten this far without everyone's help.
“After all of this, and in keeping with our original goal, every story needs an end, so season three will be our last. A chance to finish the journey right and come full circle.”
What Could the Plot Be?
Things that happened in season four left marks. As we saw with Sully all through season four, Top Boy has consistently shown how trauma affects people and what happens after their lives get crazy.
In the future, Lauryn will have to deal with killing her abusive partner and the father of her unborn child, Curtis (Howard Charles), while his mean sister Vee (Ava Brennan) will probably be out for revenge. Aside from his drug empire, Dushane also has to worry about his ongoing health problems.
Then there's the fact that Sully ruined Dushane's plan to retire by killing his planned successor Jamie (Michael Ward), at the end of season four. This caused another fight between these two people, who used to be friends and business partners but have since grown apart.
It's hard to think that Aaron and Stefan, Jamie's brothers, wouldn't want some payback, which would put them in “the game” as well. Jaq is another person who might be ready to step up. Jobson told NME about her character's goals before the fourth season: “I think she did” (used to have motivations to be the Top Boy).
Since then, a lot has happened that has probably made her less determined to move up the ladder. I don't know if she still wants the same things now. I think she's changing how she feels about people she used to look up to.”
Oh, did we mention that the police investigation is still going on? The police are still looking into their drug empire, which they know much about.
Who Will Be in Season 5 of Top Boy?
Based on what they said above, Ashley and Kane will be back as Dushane and Sully, but the case hasn't been made public yet. It's also likely that the rest of the supporting cast.
Including Shelly (Little Simz), Jaqs (Jasmine Jobson), Stef (Araloyin Oshunremi), and the rest who will come back. Also, it looks like Ats (Keiyon Cook), Kit (Kadeem Ramsay), and Jamie (Michael Ward), who all died at some point during season 4, won't be in another show.
When Will the Fifth Season Come Out?
The last part of the Top Boy story hasn't been given a release date yet, but Netflix has confirmed that filming will start this summer. This suggests that it will come out in 2023.
Is Season 5 the Last Season of Top Boy?
Yes. As was already said, season 5 of Top Boy will be the last season of the show. No one has said anything about sequels, spin-offs, or continuations, so it looks like this will be the end of the line for now. Who will survive?
Is There a Trailer for Top Boy Season 5?
We don't have a full trailer with footage for Top Boy season 5, but we did get a teaser trailer to let us know that the show will be back. Ashley Walters, who was in the front and helped make it, put the clip on his Twitter account along with the good news.
