A big, big number of individuals (an estimated 1.9 million) tuned in to Channel 4’s ‘Top Boy’ during its four days as the talk of the town. Trending worldwide for the entirety of its run (31st October – 3rd November), it perhaps comes as no surprise that Channel 4 have just announced a second season is in the works.
Ronan Bennett‘s drama about Hackney drug dealers and the communities they live in features a number of familiar names, the likes of Kano and Ashley Walters.
Channel 4’s chief creative officer Jay Hunt said: “Top Boy encapsulates everything that our drama is about: hugely original and passionate, with a brilliant roster of new talent. I’m thrilled that we’ll be seeing more.”
The second season is expected sometime in the new year.
