A brief about The Chi series plot
The Chi is an American drama television series created by Lena Waithe and executive produced by Waithe, Common, Aaron Kaplan, Stephen Curry, Derek Dudley, and Elwood Reid. The show debuted on January 7, 2018, and was well-received by the viewers.
The show is based in a neighborhood of Chicago’s south side where each episode focuses on the stories of different characters living there. The main storyline includes first, Brandon (Jason Mitchell), who struggles to make something of himself while being consumed with guilt.
The next storyline is of Emmett (Jacob Latimore), who is trying to find his place in this world along with parenting. We don’t doubt that the relationship between Emmett and Keisha will continue to grow and will be a point of focus in the next season.
The third is about Ronnie (Ntare Guma ) and Kevin (Alex Hibbert), who are two teenagers being pushed into violence. Next season, we would expect to see Kevin taking on his own responsibilities and growing up in the process, or being faced with a nasty legal battle.
Finally, Jada (Yolonda Ross) is a single mother who is struggling with many issues and turns to the church for guidance.
