Top Boy

In 2011, Channel 4 ordered a second season of the 4-part drama/thriller Top Boy, which stars Ashley Walters, thanks to strong audience response, and critical acclaim after the first season aired that year.

Season 2 will also comprise of 4 episodes, just like season 1, and returns to your screens (if you're in the UK) on Channel 4 on August 20th at 9pm

Season 1 never did air in the USA, although it's available on DVD on Netflix to rent. It was streaming at one point, but no longer is. From a few reactions some of our UK readers sent to me, it's a solid piece of work, though its familiar *urban* themes of drugs, gangs and violence (but in a different setting) may turn off some Stateside, others said.

I've also heard/read comparisons made to The Wire.

Whether or not it'll officially be made available on American TV isn't yet known. Although I won't be surprised if you find chunks of the series uploaded to video sharing sites like YouTube.

Those of you in the UK, if you missed Channel 4's broadcast of Top Boy, in late October/early November, you should know that all 4 episodes are available for viewing online via the channel's website HERE.

The gritty 4-part drama series is expected to continue with a new season that sees a lot more drama than its predecessor, and is expected to be an even bigger success than the first series, with hints that there may even be a third season in the pipeline! 

But for now, Top Boy season 2 returns to your screens (if you're in the UK) on Channel 4 on August 20th at 9pm

Ahead of that, Channel 4 has release a new clip from episode 1 of the series, which is embedded below (underneath, you'll find an earlier teaser):
