Will the series return for a fifth season?
A series that features the mixture of a coming-of-age series and a murder mystery is something you just cannot miss upon. If that didn’t get you interested enough then the storyline of the series definitely will. That is how charming ‘The Chi’ series is and its most attractive features are its relevance and brutal honesty.
The first four seasons of the series were a great hit among the audience and the fourth season of the series aired from May 2021 through August 2021. But now that the fourth season is over, the fans have been asking if there will be more of the series.
Here is everything we know about it so far:
What is ‘The Chi’ About?
The story of The Chi features the lifestyle of the South Side of Chicago and is created by Lena Waithe. The series is described as: “A fateful turn of events that sends shockwaves through a community on the Southside of Chicago and connects the lives of Emmett, Brandon, Ronnie, and Kevin in unexpected ways.”
The plot of the series revolves around the aftermath of an incident caused by police brutality which has affected the dynamic of the neighborhood and has led the residents of the area to look out for each other even if it makes them break the law.
Season 5 Plot
At the end moments of season 4 of the series we saw that after getting threatened by Trig revealing the footage of Marcus’ attack, Douda ended up leaving Chicago. We say him driving outside the city however, Justin Hillian, the director of the show has hinted that he might not have gone for good from the series.
The director also added: “’ Never underestimate Otis Perry.’ He did agree, though, that Douda had lost this match. He claims that he ‘overplayed his hand.’ It did not go according to plan. I find it impossible to imagine that he would give up so easily.”
Justin also said that he plans to focus more on Trig’s neighborhood watch program in season 5. At the end of season 4, Tiffany still remains undecided between Dante and Emmett and finally gives up in the end and walks away.
In season 5 we can expect many twists and surprising turns. We can expect Douda to return and we might finally get a glimpse of Trig’s battle. Emmett is definitely going to hurt after Tiffany’s ongoing affair with Rob.
The Chi Season 5 Release Date
At the end of season 4, it was already decided that the series will be renewed for a fifth season. Although it is uncertain whether it will be the last season, the director has a lot of stories to work with so that might not be the case.
The fifth season is reportedly already in the making and it might be released before the end of this year.
