The second season of “The Chi” is in production and now casting.
Life in the South Side of Chicago can get a bit dangerous. The show focuses on kids and their families who live in Chicago’s south side and navigate that world where simple decisions may have grave consequences.
The Chi is a drama which was created by writer Lena Waithe. The Chi is all about life in a rough neighborhood in Chicago’s south side. The show airs on Showtime and premiered on Showtime on January 7, 2018. Later that month, Showtime announced that it had renewed the series for season 2. Season 2 just began production in Chicago.
According to the show’s description… The young adults of the area are trying to scrape a living for themselves, while the elders sit on their front porches and observe the goings on. The South Side has the potential to crush dreams, and this coming-of-age series focuses on Kevin, a preteen who embraces the normal rites of childhood, Brandon, who makes a leap of faith to succeed in love and life with Jerrika, Emmett, who seeks guidance from his mother, and Ronnie, who is a drifter struggling to be loved. All of them are linked together by sheer coincidence as they seek redemption.
