Top Boy’s showcase Ronan Bennett has stated that he is presently talking to Netflix about streaming the second series. He revealed in an interview Metro: “We want to do a fresh season and talk to Netflix about that.”
Ronan then discussed how working on Top Boy’s fresh season was an incredible experience and added that all the ideas and concepts were extremely well developed.
It is not prevalent that thoughts and concepts written on paper can be so easily translated on the screen but, given his own words, Ronan seems to have discovered his dream team which really understands the drama’s key message.
“We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved with the new season,” he gushed. “Sometimes you write something for the screens and it doesn’t come as good as you hoped even when all the pieces are fine, but they just don’t gel when they are all together.”
Ronan continued to talk about the latest section of Top Boy: “I believe the new season is great, I really do. We don’t want to sit down on our laurels.”
When questioned about Top Boy’s future and what fans could expect to see, there seem to be several thoughts that the creators of this show will be looking at in future episodes.
“We have our heart, the characters, and the world, but we want to refresh the show with the fact that we remain true to what our fans love about the show, but also to expand and surprise the world.”
“That’s the future goal.”
It is revealed that Netflix wished to brand the fresh episodes of season 3 as the Top Boy.
Obviously, this implies that the two past seasons have differed from the third, which is why the streaming company decided to label them as Top Boy: Summerhouse.
The Summerhouse refers back to the Summerhouse Estate, where characters like Dushane, Sully, and Dris live.
The initial series started on Channel 4 in 2011, but the TV network decided, after its second round in 2013, to ax the series, causing the fans to get shocked.
The award-winning show was initially broadcasted on Channel 4 from 2011 to 2013 and, thanks to its hitting history lines on a London council estate, was drawn the global public.
Series three picks up when Dushane (Ashley Walters) goes back from exile to London to recover his throne on the extremely profitable drug market.
He teams up with his spiritual brother, partner and former rival, Sully (Kane Robinson), who also walks back on the same road after his own kind of exile–a jail–is over.
Both are awaiting the young, hungry and ruthless gang leader Jamie (Michael Ward), whose aspirations leave no room for Dushane and Sully.
