The fifth and final season of Top Boy dropped on Netflix on 7th September and fans of the series are still asking one question, who is the shooter?
The critically-acclaimed crime drama follows drug dealers in Hackney, east London, led by Dushane (Ashley Waters) and Sully (Kane Robinson).
We're still recovering from that season finale and now, director William Stefan Smith has revealed the show's alternative ending which actually told us who the killer was.
Now, in an interview with Netflix, director of the final episode, William Stefan Smith, has revealed Top Boy's alternative ending. "The first way we shot the ending, we reveal the killer. That's what was on page," he said.
"But then we had one more take and I was like 'let's do one where we don't see the killer'. Then, we put that in the cut, gave it to Netflix, gave it to the execs, Ashley and Kane saw it and I think everyone agreed it was just stronger."
William also revealed why he chose for the shooter remain anonymous. "The idea of not showing the killer, for me, the reason was it could be anyone because Sully is a person that has so [many] enemies," he said.
"The idea that one of these enemies came and shot him, for me, demonstrates what life can be like on the roads."
So, will we ever learn who shot Sully? "I can understand some people want to know who killed Sully, but I won't be the one to tell you," William said.
Top Boy is streaming on Netflix now.
