After finishing its third season run on a beautiful note last year, The Chi is returning with a fourth season in a row, which will see how long these beautiful moments last. The show originally came to our screens through Showtime in the January of 2018. Lena Waithe created the show telling the story of a community on the Southside of Chicago. These include characters such as Emmett, Brandon, Ronnie, and Kevin, whose life turn upside down in unexpected ways. Especially when the area is one of the toughest ones to live in. Although everyone turning better last time, would it be the same for season 4?
Last time on The Chi we might have opened up to seeing characters shed a tear for Ronnie but ended up with a tear for the wedding of Emmett and Tiff. Apart from them, the other characters find themselves, someone, to rely on as well. Douda on the other hand, won the election to become the Mayor and offered Trigg a deal he can’t refuse. Anyway, here we are taking a look at what this will turn into in the upcoming first episode of The Chi Season 4. But before that, let’s have a quick recap of what went down in the Season 3 finale.

While Emmet and Tiff work their wedding out, Papa is figuring out if he has to be the head of the family now. Keisha tries to muscle up and reveal she is pregnant to Tiff.
