According to Deadline,
Showtime has renewed hit drama series The Chi for a fifth season. The premium cabler announced the news just hours after Sunday night’s Season 4 finale.
The renewal comes amid strong ratings for the series, which is averaging 4.2 million weekly viewers and is on pace to become the most-streamed Showtime series ever, according to the network. Season 5 is slated to premiere in 2022.
Created and executive produced by Lena Waithe and executive produced by Common, The Chi is a timely coming-of-age story about a group of residents on the South Side of Chicago who become linked by coincidence but bonded by the need for connection and redemption.
