Along with Black Mirror, it's the latest case of Netflix usurping a Channel 4 show at the production level to make it an exclusive, with a little help from Top Boy fan Drake, who acquired the rights to the series and serves as executive-producer. The British show also helps towards Netflix's European content quota. Critics have compared Top Boy to The Wire as it follows the lives of the residents of a fictionalized council estate (that has succumbed to violence and drugs) in Hackney, east London.

Six years is a long time to wait for a third season and anticipation will be high for the gritty drama's return. Luckily, there's not long to go now: all episodes of Top Boy's third season drop simultaneously on Netflix this fall.
