Ashley Walters 'set for Top Boy revival'

Share article:

Ashley Walters is set to star in a revival of "Top Boy".

The "Safe House" star is wanted to reprise his role as drug dealer Dushane in the crime drama series, which is expected to return to the small screen on Netflix rather than its former home on Channel 4.

According to RadioTimes.com, the streaming service are planning to make two more series of the programme, which told the story of drug and gang violence on a fictional east London estate.

An announcement is expected to be made imminently and it is thought Ronan Bennett will be involved in the script once again.

Last year, Ashley hinted Drake could be part of a "Top Boy" revival because the US rapper is a huge fan of the series.

He previously said: "What I can say is that, behind the scenes, there's some serious work going on to make it happen, and between a lot of good people too. So it's going to happen at some point, but I can't really talk about it too much until the paper has been signed.

"Drake is involved. He's coming on board to help and try and push the situation forward. We'll see what happens! I've gone through having empty promises, and I've always relied on myself. I take whatever anyone says with a pinch of salt, but hopefully it will work out."
