What’s This TV Show About?
A Showtime Chicago drama from Lena Waithe, The Chi stars Jason Mitchell, Tiffany Boone, Jacob Latimore, Yolonda Ross, Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine, Alex R. Hibbert, Shamon Brown Jr., Michael V. Epps, Barton Fitzpatrick, and Armando Riesco. The story explores life on Chicago’s South Side. True to its name, the drama is shot entirely in Chi-Town. It follows a group of Chicagoans who, at first, are connected by circumstance, but begin to develop a bond, due to their loneliness, thirst for atonement, and hunger for a more meaningful life.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of The Chi averaged a 0.13 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 398,000 viewers. Compared to the first season, that’s down by 48% and 44%, respectively. Learn how The Chi stacks up against the other Showtime TV shows.
