Will There Be Another Season of Top Boy? Fans of the popular crime drama “Top Boy” rejoiced when Netflix revived the series in 2019, six years after its original run on Channel 4 in the UK. The series initially premiered in 2011 and aired for two seasons under the title “Top Boy: Summerhouse.” Last year, Netflix brought us a blockbuster fourth season overall, which had fans buzzing about the fate of Dushane (played by Ashley Walters) and Sully (played by Kane Robinson). The much-anticipated third season on Netflix (fifth overall) has now finally dropped, leaving fans curious about the show’s future. Source
The Fate of Dushane and Sully
After a tumultuous journey full of high stakes and compelling drama, “Top Boy” Season 3 on Netflix serves as the concluding chapter for our protagonists, Dushane and Sully. The creators decided that it was time to put an end to the storyline that began back in 2011. Although Netflix was keen to continue the series, Ashley Walters and Kane Robinson, who portray Dushane and Sully respectively, believed it was the right decision to conclude the story. Walters stated, “Kane and I were like, personally, we can’t. We don’t think it’s the right thing to do. It may have gone on too long anyway.” Source

What About a Spinoff?
When Netflix confirmed that the latest season would be the final outing for “Top Boy,” Walters and Robinson thanked the fans for their longstanding support. The statement read, “For those that have followed the journey from the start, you will know how much this show means to everyone on our team and we wholeheartedly know how much it means to you.” Despite the emotional farewell, the statement also included a sense of finality, hinting that a spinoff isn’t likely to happen anytime soon.

While it may be heartbreaking for fans to say goodbye, the actors believe that every story must have a proper conclusion. “Season three will be our finale. A chance to come full circle and end the journey in the right way,” said Walters and Robinson. The ensemble cast, along with new characters, have played a significant role in shaping the legacy of the show. Source
