*Drake is headed back to series television…across the pond.

The Canadian rapper, who got his start on the high school-themed TV show “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” has purchased the rights to gritty British drama “Top Boy,” and will take on a prominent role in the series for its upcoming third season, according to BBC News.

The show focuses on rival gangs and their involvement in the drug trade in fictional London housing project.

Channel 4 cancelled the program in 2014, ending its critically acclaimed run after just two seasons.

That same year, Drizzy expressed his love for the show and praised its star on Twitter.
