Top Boy is set on a housing estate in Hackney, London. It's a location which is filled with young people selling drugs.
How did season 2 end?
Anyone who loved Michael (Xavien Russell) would have been left devastated as he woke up to find an Albanian gangster killing his mate before being launched off the top of a 20-storey tower block.
The incident could have been avoided if Dushane came home when he intended, but instead he stayed out to deal with pressing business, leaving Michael to fend for himself.
The poor lad was killed because he shouted down to Dushane, warning him not to enter the flat and saving his life.
What happened with Dushane and Sully?
The pair had a love-hate relationship to say the least. However, due to their lives being in danger they formed a truce in season two in order to retrieve the drugs that the Albanians stole from them.
