The Chi season four is definitely on the cards after the series was renewed by Showtime. The drama series follows residents who live in a dangerous neighbourhood in South Chicago, and there is a murder on their doorstep. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about season four of The Chi, including the release date, cast, trailer, plot and more.
The season three finale of The Chi aired at the end of August and fans were thrilled to hear the series has been picked up for another instalment.
The series made its debut in 2018 and it was created by screenwriter and actress Lena Waithe.
As the news of the season renewal has only just come to light, it is too early to say when season four will arrive.
With the latest season premiering in June 2020, there is a hope the new season will air in the summer of 2021.
However due to the coronavirus outbreak putting all TV production on pause, fans may have to wait until the end of 2021, or even 2022 before new episodes come to light.
