Top Boy Season 4 was technically announced back in 2017, and the production of the fourth chapter suffered major pandemic delays last year. However, fans are gearing up for its return, hopefully before the year ends.
Season 4 is also being referred to as Season 2, after being picked up by Netflix from Channel 4, and we explore the upcoming chapter’s expected release window and what you can expect from the plot.
Top Boy Season 4 Delays and Release Window
After Season 2 of Top Boy, it was announced that the show was not only renewed for a third season but a fourth as well. Meaning fans have been waiting for the fourth chapter for a while.
Not only was there a two-year wait between the announcement of Season 3 and its premiere in 2019, but the pandemic hit Top Boy Season 4’s development quite hard last year.
Drake and Netflix confirmed at the start of 2020 that new episodes were expected to drop within the same year. However, the production was shut down in Spring when the series was due to start filming.
Filming in London did not resume until December 2020, when stars Ashley Walters and Kano released a short clip about filming.
We’re now nine months on from that initial filming update, and early reports are predicting that we will see Top Boy Season 4 by the end of the year.
With a trailer still to release, Season 4 could follow the same pattern as Season 3 and release around a month after its first trailer drop.
Top Boy Season 4 Cast and Plot

Top Boy Season 4 will obviously clear up the sound of a gunshot at the end of Season 3, and fans still believe that Dris is alive. Tilly’s fate on the show was left rather up in the air, but we are expecting the character to make a return.
Lee and Sarah’s secret identities as police officers were also revealed, which will introduce an interesting dynamic in Season 4.
