The third season picks up as Dushane (original star Ashley Walters) returns from exile to his home in London to reclaim his throne in the highly lucrative drug market. He teams with Sully (Kane “Kano” 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, the young, hungry and ruthless gang leader whose ambitions leave no place for Dushane and Sully.

Aside from this project, Drake is said to be teaming with A24 in a deal that includes both TV and film. He is currently producing documentary feature “The Carter Effect”, about former NBA star Vince Carter, that premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.
