If you’ve made it all the way to the end of season four (or season two, as Netflix would have us believe), your heart is probably racing, your mind is spinning, and you’re probably filled with a plethora of questions. Only a second season will be able to answer these questions. So, let’s get this party started, shall we?
What to Expect From Top Boy Season 5: Here’s Everything You Need to Know About the Show.
Top Boy Season 5 Expected Release Date
There is currently no word on whether or not Top Boy will be renewed for a second season, but given the show’s popularity and celebrity endorsements (including Drake), we would expect it to return. Besides, that juicy cliffhanger (you know the one) deserves to be followed up on, or else fans will be unable to sleep at night.
It’s not unreasonable to expect season five to premiere in 2023, assuming a year-long production schedule; however, there were two and a half years among seasons three and four, so…
Top Boy Season 5 Expected Cast
Dushane (played by Ashley Walter) and Sully (played by Kane Robinson) made it through another season relatively unscathed… or at least, relatively unscathed. We don’t expect them to come back because neither of them died.
Given the likelihood that Jamie (Michael Ward) survived a shot to the head administered by Sully, it’s safe to say that we’ve seen the last of him on the show.
As a result of Jamie shooting Kit (Kadeem Ramsay), Jamie’s best friend Kit will also be absent from the show for the remainder of the season.
It seems a bad time for best friends as Ats (Keiyon Cook), Stef’s best friend, turned up dead midway through season four as well.
We do, however, expect to see the following items return to the market:
Pebbles (Erin Kellyman) and Vee (Ava Brennan), two newcomers, will almost certainly return.
Top Boy Season 5 Plot
One thing is for certain: someone is going to light up a cigarette at some point. In the last season, there was far too much betrayal to go around for there not to be some sort of repercussion.
A new chasm has most likely been opened between Sully and Dushane as a result of his actions. Dushane’s path to retirement was supposed to include handing over control of the drug distribution to Jamie. Now that Sully has scrapped that plan, we can expect Dushane to be adamant about not taking it lying down.
Aside from the rare occasion in which he is paralyzed by the anxiety that seems to have developed throughout season four. Dushane’s mental well-being may become a point of contention in the future, and this will be a different problem for him to deal with.
Speaking of vengeance, the exchange between Sully and Jamie’s youngest brother Stef was telling – a long stare in which Stef’s confusion and shock were exchanged for sorrow, a tinge of guilt, and perhaps a sense of resolution on Sully’s behalf. The possibility that schoolboy Stef and bookworm Aaron (Jamie’s other brother) might want to settle the score is not a far stretch.
After assuming the role of breadwinner and primary caregiver for Stef, it will be interesting to see how Aaron handles the situation. Are there any chances he’ll abandon his university studies and hit the streets like Jamie? Season five will be the deciding factor.
Jamie’s brothers aren’t the only ones who have been scorned by their sister, and it’s likely that Jaq’s sister Lauryn will have to keep an eye on her. Killing her controlling, abusive ex-boyfriend Curtis (Howard Charles) would seem to put her out of harm’s way in terms of danger, wouldn’t you?
Curtis doesn’t stand a chance against his sister Vee, who makes him look like a lapdog in comparison. Although she’s a deranged lapdog, she’s still cute. There isn’t a universe in which she wouldn’t seek retribution for the death of her brother, whom she adored. It appears that Lauryn’s new baby isn’t the only thing she’ll have to keep an eye out for.
Shelly, Dushane’s girlfriend, is known to have at least one skeleton in her closet, and it is possible that it will come to light at any time. Her ex-murderous boyfriend’s actions have been concealed for the time being by digging up the body and disposing of it in a manner appropriate for the circumstances. By revealing her secret in the following season, her blackmailer (who happens to be the victim’s ex-girlfriend) has the potential to derail her entire season.
There are so many tangled strings to untangle. Season five, please start soon. We can’t wait to get started!
