The Chi, a drama television series developed by Emmy award-winning screenwriter Lena Waithe, focuses on a group of people living on Chicago’s South Side.
In a fortunate turn of events, Emmett, Brandon, Ronnie, and Kevin come together. But little do they realize that nothing will be the same again.
Showtime originally broadcast the series on January 7, 2018.
Earlier in December 2017, multiple digital platforms released the premiere episode of the show before it aired on the television network.
Critics have given the series high praise and the series has also gained a solid following.
Aside from being praised for its character-based storytelling, it is also known for its captivating characters.
It depicted life in the inner city of Chicago well, and the people liked it.
The show has gained the approval of many viewers who are able to relate to the experiences of the characters.
Naturally, you must be wondering if that means that the show will bag an order for the fifth season.
Here is what we know!
The Chi Season 5 Release Date
The fourth season of ‘The Chi‘ premiered on Showtime on May 23, 2021, and concluded on August 1, 2021.
It consists of ten episodes that are 46–58 minutes each.
Here is a look at what we’ve gathered for the fifth season.
A formal announcement is yet to be made confirming whether or not the show will return for its fifth run.
Our research indicates that it stands a good chance of being renewed.
As a first priority, the series performs consistently on the network.
Despite the small drop in viewership, it remains popular among the audience.
A second point is that Rolando Boyce (who portrays Darnell) has expressed optimism about a possible fifth season in a July 2021 interview.
In his comment, he explained that the series’ creator Lena Waithe never fails to surprise the cast with her storylines.
Despite being unsure of what will occur in the show, he hopes that a renewed season will be added.
The fourth season of the show was announced in September 2020 and premiered eight months later.
Therefore, we can anticipate the fifth season of ‘The Chi’ will debut during the second quarter of 2022 if it is renewed by fall 2021.

It’s likely that we’ll see these actors if the series returns: Jacob Latimore (Emmett Washington), Alex Hibbert (Kevin Williams), Yolonda Ross (Jada Washington), Shamon Brown Jr. (Stanley “Papa” Jackson), Michael V. Epps (Jake Taylor), and Birgundi Baker (Kiesha Williams).
