So, without any further delay let’s get the ball rolling!
The Chi Season 5 Release Date
According to the calculations of the streaming site, the 4th season of The Chi is getting 4.2 million views per episode! Which is the highest for any Showtime series.
Considering the sky-rocketing ratings obviously, the showrunners renewed the show for a 5th season. There is no release date for the 5th installment yet. But if it keeps up with the same pace of the 4th season then expect the upcoming season to release around the same time next year!
The Chi’s 4th season aired from May till August, consisting of 10 episodes each lasting for about an hour. The Chi Season 5 will also have more or less the same number of episodes.
However, there are no official details about the upcoming season other than its renewal news. So, it is better to wait for the showrunners to announce themselves. Rest assured, whenever any such announcement will be made we will be the first to let you know!
As the story in The Chi Season 5 will be told in continuity expect the main protagonists to reprise their old respective roles. But there are high chances of new actors joining the cast. However, all this depends on the plot twists that the 5th season will entail.
The confirmed cast members for the 5th installment include the following:
- Jacob Latimore (as Emmett Washington)
- Alex Hibbert (as Kevin Williams)
- Shamon Brown Jr. (as Stanley “Papa” Jackson)
- Michael V. Epps (as Jake Taylor)
- Birgundi Baker (as Kiesha Williams)
- Luke James (as Victor “Trig” Taylor)
- Curtiss Cook (as Otis “Douda” Perry)
In addition to the aforementioned list, other cast members include; Tyla Abercrumbie (as Nina Williams), Rolando Boyce (as Darnell), Yolonda Ross (as Jada Washington), and Hannaha Hall (as Tiffany).
As The Chi Season 5 still has a lot of time for its release we’ll have to remain patient for more updates on the cast of the upcoming season. And hopefully, this patience will be worth it!
The 4th season ended on a major cliffhanger consequently the story of the 5th season will get more complicated! Tiffany and Emmett’s relationship will further suffer. As in the latest season, Tiffany finally confesses to Emmett that she does not want an open relationship anymore. But later she did certain actions which did not match with her words. So, one of the subplots will revolve around this issue.
Douda will not give up that easily, he will come back for his revenge in the 5th season. How? Now that is up to the writers; they will most likely come up with an interesting plot twist to bring him back into the main plot. But with Douda’s return, Marcus will suffer.
The 4th season centered on the police helping out the inhabitants but The Chi Season 5 will not follow this storyline. As the show is based on the community; people solving their own problems. However, these were all just our assumptions; the final decision still lies in the hands of writers.
We’ll know more about the plot once the showrunners disclose the official plot synopsis for the 5th installment.
