Showtime announced today that The Chi has been picked up for a fifth season. The good news comes the day following the conclusion of Season 4, which had another impressive showing of solid viewership despite mixed feedback from audiences and critics.

Set in Chicago, the city of which it is named after, The Chi focuses on working-class residents within a south side community who become linked by coincidence but are bonded by the need for connection and redemption. It is a tough neighborhood, where there is real and constant danger, meaning even the simplest decisions can have life or death consequences.

Look for Season 5 of The Chi in mid-to-late 2022.
