TOP boy fans were relieved when Netflix revived the tense drama, following its drop by Channel 4 after two seasons.
Netflix's rescue was initially planned for two further seasons – so, is it time for fans to say goodbye again, for real this time?
Is season four of Top Boy the last?
Netflix is keeping its cards close to its chest when it comes to Top Boy.
Netflix hasn't explicitly said that season four will be the last, so a fifth season remains a possibility.
According to Digital Spy Top Boy beat 13 Reasons Why and Suits to become the most-watched series in the UK in 2019.
But a fifth season may depend on how the fourth is received by viewers.
What happened in season 3 of Top Boy?
The start of season three – Netflix's season one – sees kingpin Dushane Hill (rapper Ashley Walters) in Jamaica, where he has fled to avoid prison.
He works his cousin's car rental shop and makes a deal with Sugar (Gilbert Chen), an imprisoned drug lord.
