After buying the rights to the show earlier this year, Drake has put his plan to bring Top Boy back in motion.

Drake will executive produce the series alongside his long-time associate Future the Prince and LeBron James’ SpringHill Entertainment. Top Boy fans don’t need to worry too much about new personnel, though, as the show’s original team will return, including creator Ronan Bennett and director Yann Demange, plus cast members Ashley Walters (aka Dushane) and rapper Kano (aka Sully).

Spanning 10 episodes, Top Boy‘s third season “picks up as Dushane returns from exile to his home in London to reclaim his throne in the highly lucrative drug market,” according to Netflix. “He teams up with Sully, his spiritual brother, partner, and sometime rival who is also returning to the same streets after his own form of exile – prison – comes to an end. Awaiting them both is Jamie, the young, hungry and ruthless gang leader whose ambitions leave no place for Dushane and Sully.”

Top Boy is set to go into production early next year for a 2019 release.
