Showtime has picked up the drama series “The Chi” for a third season. Created and executive produced by Lena Waithe (“Boomerang,” “Master of None”) and executive produced by Common (“Selma”), “The Chi” is described as a timely coming-of-age story centering on a group of residents who become linked by coincidence but bonded by the need for connection and redemption.
The cast includes Jason Mitchell (“Mudbound”), Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine (“Queen of Katwe”), Jacob Latimore (“Sleight”), Alex Hibbert (“Moonlight”), Yolonda Ross (“Treme”) and Armando Riesco (“Bull”).
“’The Chi’ revels in revealing the beating heart of the South Side of Chicago,” said Gary Levine, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. “We, like our viewers, have fallen in love with these characters and we remain eager to see where Lena and her fellow artists will take them in season three.”
The second season is currently airing Sundays at 10 p.m. ET.
