After a season with a lot of political changes and changes in relationships that will definitely have repercussions in the future, The Chi is back for its next chapter.
This is good news for fans who were wondering what would happen next in the made-up city of Chicago now that Douda (Curtiss Cook) seems to have quit his job as mayor and left town.
Even so, we should point out that it’s likely Douda will be back in season 5 and be more dangerous than ever. He’s not the type to just give up.
While the city is changing who runs it, Showtime has been teasing that the characters will be concentrating on that complicated thing called love. Not only are romantic relationships put to the test, but so are parent-child relationships, resident-community relationships, and of course, self-love.
Here’s what we know about season 5 of The Chi.
