Top Boy Season 5 News – The fourth season of the London-based crime drama sets the stage for an explosive sequel.
It’s finally here: the newest episode of Top Boy!
You may have a lot of unanswered questions if you binge-watched season 4 (or season 2, as Netflix has renamed it), which debuted on the streaming service earlier this month.
As Dushane’s drug business extended to Spain and Morocco, the most recent episode of Top Boy saw the programme in stormy form – read our Top Boy review for the entire judgement.
From the very beginning, the storey took unexpected turns. It was really in the show’s last moments that one of the most significant changes occurred, one that set the stage for future storylines involving Dushane and Sully (played by Ashley Walters and Kane Robinson).
In the meanwhile, when could we expect a Top Boy Season 5?
Here’s all you need to know about what’s next for the critically acclaimed series.
Top Boy Season 5 has yet to be announced.
When Netflix announced in November 2017 that it has commissioned a new season of 10 episodes for Top Boy, it was the first time the show had been renewed since its original run on Channel 4 between 2011 and 2013.
Netflix released the first batch of new episodes on September 13th, 2019, and confirmed a second batch will be released on February 26th, 2020, little over five months later.
It’s reasonable to assume that Dushane and Sully will return for a third season, considering the success of the previous two and the cliffhanger ending to the last season.
When may we expect a Top Boy Season 5?
In other words, if Top Boy gets a fifth season, viewers won’t have to wait nearly as long for new episodes as they did in the past.
Walters and Robinson have confirmed that filming for the show’s fourth season began in December, following a production stoppage imposed by the COVID-19 outbreak, which required production to be pushed back until much later in the year.
Despite the 30-month gap between seasons due to a delay in production, if Netflix is fast to commission more Top Boy, the show may be back on our screens as early as late 2023.
So, what can we expect from Top Boy Season 5?
It’s Lauryn’s Best Friend

Netflix’s newest season of Top Boy doesn’t have an official fifth season, but there are several storylines that might be explored in any future episodes.
After Sully’s murder of Jamie, any new season would have to deal with the subsequent events. It is possible that Sully’s actions might revive the tensions between Dushane and Jamie, who have known each other for many years. And what are the likely reactions of Jamie’s brothers to this senseless murder? Is Stef planning to exact vengeance? Despite his best efforts to stay away from Jamie’s illicit activities, is Aaron destined to follow in his brother’s footsteps?
In spite of the death of Curtis (Howard Charles), the remainder of his gang, including Curtis’ violent sister, made it out of the fourth season alive. Sully warned them never to return to London. What will happen if they follow this counsel, or will they return to seek payback on Lauryn and her sister Jaq?
Last but not least, the drug kingpin Dushane was plagued by what looked to be panic attacks during the last season. If Top Boy returns, we can expect this to be further explored, and we doubt Sully’s actions will have done much to alleviate Dushane’s anxiety…
See how the Season 4 finale of Top Boy lays the stage for a possibly dramatic Season 5 in our in-depth explanation.
Top Boy Season 5 might feature a variety of actors.

If Top Boy makes a comeback, we may count on the following cast members to be back:
Sully is portrayed by Ashley Walters, while Dushane is played by Ashley Walters.
Jaq Simbi Ajikawo (‘Little Simz’) and Shelley Saffron Hocking (‘Lauryn’) appear in the film.
We may also see more of No-Lay as Mandy, Adwoa Aboah as Becks, Lisa Dwan as Lizzie, and Erin Kellyman as Dushane’s niece Pebbles in the future, but she may not be around for long now that Dushane has her in his sights.
We may have seen the last of Jamie’s brothers Aaron and Stefan, played by Hope Ikpoku Jr. and Araloyin Oshunremi, after the shocking cliffhanger of the most recent season. It remains to be seen how they might factor into any future episodes following Jamie’s exit, as he was a major player over the previous two seasons.
Jamie’s second-in-command, Kadeem Ramsay, will not be returning as Kit, and Ats’ mother Amma (Jolade Obasola), who was deported from the UK early in the fourth season, will also not be returning.
It has been a long time since Ra’Nell (Malcolm Kamulete) appeared in the first two seasons of Top Boy, and it doesn’t look like he’ll be returning anytime soon. Ashley Walters told RadioTimes.com that there are no plans to bring him back.
Gem (Giacomo Mancini), a prominent character from the show’s early days, appeared briefly in the first season broadcast on Netflix, therefore the door for that character to return looks to be open for Ra’Nell’s old pal.
