Netflix has announced that the third (fifth iykyk) season of popular British crime drama Top Boy will be its last.

Originally airing on Channel 4 the show was eventually picked up by streaming giant Netflix delivering 3 seasons to date.

Speaking on the news, stars Ashley Walters and Kane ‘Kano’ Robinson who play Dushane and Sully on the show said in a statement: “For those that have followed the journey from the start, you will know how much this show means to everyone on our team and we wholeheartedly know how much it means to you,”

“These characters have been a part of our lives for over a decade now and without everyone’s support we couldn’t have come this far,”

“Whilst the journeys of Dushane and Sully have remained at the core of the show, the new characters that have entered the world of Top Boy have become a key part of the show’s legacy, representing each new storyline in a raw, authentic way,”

“With all this being said, and staying true to our original goal, every story must have an ending and so season three will be our finale. A chance to come full circle and end the journey in the right way,”

They added: “We’re very excited about what’s next and thank you for riding with us. We appreciate you. See you again soon.”

The news follows the announcement that Kano will star in Daniel Kaluuya’s dystopian Netflix film, “The Kitchen”.
