Top Boy became one of the hottest series on Netflix is 2019. The show initially ran for two seasons before getting canceled. Eventually, Drake intervened and got it back to Netflix. The rapper even confirmed a few months before an official statement came out that the show would return.
Prior to heading to Netflix, the show already grew in popularity in the UK and abroad. At the show’s debut, Drake explained that it was important to bring these characters back because they had an important story to tell.
“I got attached to the characters, the story really drew me in. I think there’s so many parallels between Toronto and London — obviously, we don’t have the same accent but we speak the same. So it reminded me of people that I grew up with or guys that I know and situations that I’ve witnessed. So I felt super connected right away,” he said. “Then it disappeared on me.”
Keep your eyes peeled for season 2.
