Top Boy fans can't wait to see Barry Keoghan in upcoming final season

The new season lands next month

The eagerly anticipated final season of Top Boy is coming to Netflix on 7 September and there’s one actor that fans are particularly keen to see in action.

The streaming platform shared a new trailer for the upcoming season, where we got to see our first glimpse of The Banshees of Inisherin star Barry Keoghan, who joins the cast as Jonny. You can see the trailer here:

And its fair to say that fans are keen to see what Keoghan brings to the show with one person writing on X, formerly known as Twitter: “Barry Keoghan is going to be f***ing phenomenal in Top Boy.”

Another said: “Excited to see Barry Keoghan in the final season of Top Boy.”

Barry Keoghan stars as Jonny in Top Boy season 3.

A third said: “Brian Gleeson and Barry Keoghan being in the final season of Top Boy tells me all I need to know. Top Boy is going out on a banger.”

Someone else said: “I found Top Boy: Summerhouse so deeply unsettling and difficult to watch that I haven’t seen any of the new ones but maybe I’m prepared to risk all my emotions for Barry Keoghan.”

“Barry Keoghan in Top Boy? I’m here for it,” wrote another fan.

The popular crime drama, which is set on the fictional East London estate of Summerhouse, has become a huge fan favourite since debuting in 2011 on Channel 4 - later being picked up by Netflix.

A synopsis for the new season from Netflix says: "Sully’s actions at the end of the last series have rewritten his business rules with Dushane.

"As new shared problems arise, everything they've built comes under threat from forces outside and within their empire.

"Can they coexist by the rules of the road they’ve lived by their whole lives in a world that is changing before them? Or can there only be one TOP BOY?"

Top Boy first aired in 2011.

The series stars Ashley Walters (Bulletproof, Small Island), Kane Robinson (The Kitchen), Simbiatu Ajikawo ‘Little Simz’, Jasmine Jobson (Lie Low, Obey), Araloyin Oshunremi (Heartstopper), rap and grime artist Natalie Athanasiou ‘NoLay’, Saffron Hocking (London Kills, White Gold), Joshua Blissett (Blue Story, Young Wallander), Adwoa Aboah (Willow).

Along with Keoghan, the new series will also see fellow Dubliner Brian Gleeson (Bad Sisters, Peaky Blinders, Frank of Ireland) joining the cast.
