Showtime’s ‘The Chi’ returns this June with an all new season!
The Lena Waithe-created drama The Chi will premiere at 9 p.m. Friday, June 24.
Series regulars Jacob Latimore, Alex Hibbert, Yolonda Ross, Shamon Brown Jr., Michael V. Epps, Birgundi Baker, Luke James and Curtiss Cook are back along with returning guest stars Kandi Burruss, La La Anthony, Jason Weaver and Iman Shumpert. Nia Jervier and Carolyn Michelle Smith will recur on the show this season, along with L’lerrét Jazelle and Antonyah Allen, and Jewel Coronel has been upped from co-EP to executive producer for the new season.
Filmed in Chicago and produced by 20th Television, the coming-of-age story revolves around a group of South Side residents who become linked by coincidence but bonded by the need for connection and redemption. Season 4 spotlighted the benefits and challenges of community policing on the South Side after Jake (Epps) has a fateful run-in with a group of officers.
