Drake has announced the return of British crime drama Top Boy which will return to Netflix this fall.
The highly acclaimed show has built a cult global following, and is frequently praised for its authentic portrayal of life on an East London housing estate while tackling pressing social issues, including mental health, racism and poverty.
On Sunday night (August 13), Top Boy Executive producer Drake revealed the show will return for a third and final season next month. He previewed a dramatic teaser for the finale on Instagram, promising to leave “No.Loose.Ends.”
“Top Boy, The Final Chapter. September 7th,” Drake penned in the caption. Check out the gripping trailer below.
Drake called for the show to be revived after two seasons of the original Channel 4 series, which aired between 2011 and 2013, and joined as executive producer for the subsequent three series.
While fans called for Drake to make a cameo on Top Boy, cast members revealed that he was once slated to appear in the first series of the Netflix show. However, his role was axed for fear of harming the show’s authenticity.
“I don’t think it would be right,” Micheal Ward who plays “Jamie” explained to Cosmopolitan. “Because, you’ve gotta remember, Top Boy is quite authentic. So as soon as you see someone like Drake’s face, who is so huge in what he does … it might take you out. So I feel like just having it with the people from next door sort of vibe, it’s just better that way.”
