"The Upper World" is the first in a planned series of novels from Penguin U.K. and HarperCollins US, which are expected to publish the book in mid-2021 and early 2022, respectively.

Kaluuya will produce alongside Screen Arcade's Eric Newman and Bryan Unkeless. Newman brought the property to Netflix. Fadugba will executive produce.

Kaluuya can next be seen in Warner Bros' "Judas and the Black Messiah".
