Showtime announced today that The Chi has been picked up for a sixth season. The good news comes with two episodes remaining in Season 5, which has again performed solidly for the cable network. The drama will reach the 50-episode mark with its season finale on August 28.

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 6 of The Chi in mid-to-late 2023.
