Netflix has revealed the cast for the new series of Top Boy in a cool new clip.

The highly-anticipated third series will see Ashley Walters reprise his role as Dushane with Kane Robinson also returning as Sully, while new members to join the cast include Michael Ward, Kola Bokinni, Kadeem Ramsay and Jasmine Jobson.

According to the official synopsis from Netflix: "The new episodes pick up as Dushane returns from exile to his home in London to reclaim his throne in the highly lucrative drug market. 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 (Ward), the young, hungry and ruthless gang leader whose ambitions leave no place for Dushane and Sully."

The new series consists of 10 new episodes, written by the show's creator Ronan Bennett, with Daniel West also on board as a writer.

Speaking about how he came up with the concept for the show, Bennett said: "Ten years ago, I witnessed a 10-year-old boy dealing drugs outside my local supermarket. It made me question what was going on in my own community and led me to create Top Boy."

Rapper Drake is executive producer - and he shared the trailer with the packed-out crowd at his London show last night.

In the past Walters has even hinted that the Canadian musician might make a little cameo, telling the Mirror: "We met up to start talking about the show and we are working out a role for him. He loves acting, of course he wanted a part.

"He's going to be really hands on and is getting stuck into it."

Ahead of the cast announcement, Walters said: "Top Boy is a raw, real representation of street culture. It explores how these characters came to make the choices they make, and gives the audience a behind-the-scenes look as to what is happening on our streets today.

"It needs to be talked about and the show doesn't shy away from giving us the platform to tell our story. We can't change things if we do not acknowledge it and understand it first.

"Netflix is the perfect platform for this show, there aren't many networks who would be brave enough to keep it this real."

The third series will land on Netflix in autumn, and if you fancy catching up before then, the first two series are available to watch on the streaming service right now.
