It’s the ideal moment to start watching Netflix’s criminal drama Top Boy if you haven’t already. The fifth and final season of the show debuted on the streaming service on September 7 to rousing acclaim, bringing the story of Sully (Kane Robinson) and Dushane (Ashley Walters) to a devastating conclusion.
The criminal drama was revived by Netflix six years after it was first shown on Channel 4 more than ten years ago. The two seasons of Top Boy: Summerhouse on Channel 4 were retitled for Netflix, and because of this, season 5 was promoted as season 3.
We realize it’s a little perplexing, but it’s worth persevering through. Inquiring as to how? To learn more about the distinctions between Top Boy and Top Boy: Summerhouse, as well as how to watch prior seasons of the show chronologically, continue reading.
How many seasons of Top Boy are there?
The fifth and final season of Top Boy, which already has four seasons available on Netflix, will debut on September 7, 2023.
The third episode of Top Boy, which was technically released on September 13th, 2019, was branded as season 1 on Netflix.
This is due to the fact that the drama was canceled by Channel 4 back in 2013 before Netflix decided to air it in 2017 when Drake purchased the Top Boy music rights.
Because it is the first season of episodes to be available on Netflix, the third season is now known as season 1.
This is also the reason why Top Boy season 3 on Netflix refers to the fifth episode.
Here’s how to watch the Top Boy seasons in the correct order on Netflix:
- Top Boy: Summerhouse season 1
- Top Boy: Summerhouse season 2
- Top Boy season 1
- Top Boy season 2
- Top Boy season 3
What’s the difference between Top Boy and Top Boy: Summerhouse?
Dushane returns from exile to retake his place in the London drug market in season 3, which begins off where the second left off, but Netflix has completely renamed the show.
To make it easier for viewers to distinguish between the two, the original Channel 4 program has been given the Netflix name Top Boy: Summerhouse.
This makes sense because the third installment of the Top Boy franchise features a new cast and crew and is, in many ways, a different program.
