A script is in the works for a fourth season of Top Boy.

The hit series returned to our screens earlier this year after being revived by Netflix, and it has turned out to be a great move.

But while the streaming service is yet to confirm the show's return for another series, one of its stars Ashley Walters, who plays Dushane, says it's looking 'promising'.

Speaking to the Metro, he said: "Fingers crossed, we haven't had the actual green light yet but it's looking promising.

"In preparation for that we've already been working out storylines and writing so it's looking good. Obviously I won't give anything away but it's looking dope and we're all looking forward to going again with the show."

Ashley says the hit series will be back for fourth outing.

But don't get too excited, because if it does come back for another season, Ashley says it won't be for a while yet.

Looking back at the success of the third instalment, the actor said he wishes they had gone back to back with a fourth.

He added: "It had a huge impact and I'm quite sad we didn't film two seasons at once because if we do go again, these people are going to have to wait quite a while again which is going to be difficult."

Originally broadcast on Channel 4 in 2011, the programme followed a group of characters living on a fictional housing estate in Hackney, east London, homing in on a group of residents who were involved in drug dealing and gangs.

Billed as an 'honest look' at inner-city gang culture, the first season was a hit with viewers, meaning a second followed two years later.

Ashley hopes fans won't have to wait too long for series four.

Both series then also found a renewed fan base when they became available on Netflix, which led to the streaming service commissioning it for another series.

The latest series picked 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, the young, hungry and ruthless gang leader whose ambitions leave no place for Dushane and Sully.
