Top Boy season 3 ending 

While we don't want to spoil the end of the series for anyone, stars Walters and Robinson vowed in a joint statement to Tudum that they would remain faithful to their characters until the very end.  

“For those who have followed the journey from the start, you will know how much this show means to everyone on our team, and we wholeheartedly know how much it means to you," they said.

"These characters have been a part of our lives for over a decade now, and without everyone’s support, we couldn’t have come this far. 

"We’re very excited about what’s next and thank you for riding with us. We appreciate you. See you again soon.”
