Jolade Obasola plays Amma in series 3 & 4 of Top Boy for Channel 4 and Netflix

Following a six-year hiatus, Top Boy returned in 2019 – making the leap from Channel 4 to Netflix. Season three was released in September 2019 to critical acclaim and production on the fourth season started in the Spring of 2020.

At the beginning of the series, Amma was paid a visit by immigration officials, who suspect she’s in the country illegally. With no income and unable to claim benefits, Amma struggled to pay the rent and provide for her son Ats, who takes matters into his own hands and goes down a dark and familiar path.

Season 4 is expected to land on Netflix in 2021.
