The series sees Ashley Walters (‘Bulletproof’, ‘Sugarhouse’) and Kane Robinson reprising their roles as “Dushane” and “Sully”, and joined by newcomer Micheal Ward as “Jamie” (‘The A List’, ‘Blue Story’). The new episodes pick up as Dushane (Walters) returns from exile to his home in London to reclaim his throne in the highly lucrative drug market. He teams up with Sully (Robinson), his spiritual brother, partner and sometime rival who is also returning to the same streets after his own form of exile – prison – comes to an end. Awaiting them both is Jamie (Ward), the young, hungry and ruthless gang leader whose ambitions leave no place for Dushane and Sully.

The series features musical artists Simbi Ajikawo ‘Little Simz’, David Omoregie ‘Dave’. Shone Romulus (‘Out’) returns as ‘Dris’ and Ashley Thomas (’24: Legacy’, ‘The Night Of’, ‘Black Mirror’) returns as “Jermaine”. New cast members include Lisa Dwan (‘Trust’), Jasmine Jobson (‘Lie Low’, ‘Obey’), Kadeem Ramsay (‘Sex Education’, ‘Blue Story’), Saffron Hocking (‘London Kills’, ‘White Gold’), Kola Bokinni (‘Hunter, Killer’, ‘Black Mirror’) and Hope Ikpoku.

The original series aired on broadcast in the UK before its end in 2013; both seasons are now globally available on Netflix. The new episodes pick up as Dushane (Ashley Walters) returns from exile to his home in London to reclaim his throne in the highly lucrative drug market. He teams up with Sully (Kane Robinson), his spiritual brother, partner and sometime rival who is also returning to the same streets after his own form of exile – prison – comes to an end. Awaiting them both is Jamie (Micheal Ward), the young, hungry and ruthless gang leader whose ambitions leave no place for Dushane and Sully.
