The arrival of the third season of British Crime Drama, Top Boy on Netflix brought in a lot of success and popularity for the show and the streaming service too. And just after watching the entire season in a go, fans started asking about its next incoming, Top Boy Season 4.
Created by Ronan Bennett and directed by Yann Demange and Jonathan van Tulleken, Top Boy is a British television crime drama series which first debuted on Channel 4. However, after two successful runs, the network canceled the show in 2014. Then in 2017, with the involvement of Canadian rapper Drake, Netflix picked up the show for another ten episodes, with both Ashley Walters and Kane Robinson reprising their roles.
