The Lena Waithe drama The Chi is certainly here to stay. One of the frontrunners for Showtime, The Chi has now been renewed for Season 4.
Justin Hillian will return as executive producer and showrunner in season four, marking the first time the series hasn't changed showrunners between seasons.
"Each season, The Chi’s authentic storytelling resonates more deeply with its devoted and growing audiences," said Showtime Entertainment president Gary Levine. "Lena Waithe together with Justin Hillian explore the joys and the heartbreak of life on the South Side in a way that is unique on television, and we relish the prospect of continuing that exploration with them."
Said Waithe, "This show has definitely taken me on a journey. One of learning, healing, and growth. I didn't know how this season would be received, but the level of engagement and enthusiasm from the fans has been fantastic. I still can't believe our numbers are up by double digits! The Chi is a team effort, and I'm grateful to continue this journey with such an amazing group of people."
The Chi has had its share of behind-the-scenes turmoil. Actor Jason Mitchell was dismissed from the series after season two finished production following multiple complaints of inappropriate conduct on set. One of those complaining was his co-star Tiffany Boone, who left the show midway through the second season.
