The Chi Renewed for Season Five


Showtime has ordered a fifth season of the hit drama series The Chi.

Season four, which aired its finale last night, is averaging 4.2 million weekly viewers and is on pace to become the most-streamed Showtime series ever. Season five will return to the network in 2022.

Created and executive produced by Lena Waithe (Twenties, Boomerang) and executive produced by Common (Selma), The Chi is a timely coming-of-age story centering on a group of residents on the South Side of Chicago who become linked by coincidence but bonded by the need for connection and redemption.

Aaron Kaplan (A Million Little Things, The Neighborhood), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Derek Dudley and Shelby Stone of ID8 Multimedia, Rishi Rajani, president of Hillman Grad Productions, and showrunner Justin Hillian serve as executive producers for season four. The Chi is produced by 20th Television.
