After a brilliant third season, fans of The Chi are left wondering if and when the series will return for with season 4.
With superb storytelling and solid character development, it’s no surprise that Showtime’s hit drama series ‘The Chi’ was a hit with both critics and viewers alike.
However, when the season 3 finale last month there were rumours that the future of the series was in doubt following a slight dip in ratings.
So, is there going to be a fourth season of The Chi and if so, when can fans expect it to premiere?
Will there be a season 4 of The Chi?
Yes, Variety reported in early-September that the series had been renewed by Showtime for a fourth season.
There were concerns that the series could have been put on hold following a significant decrease in both ratings and viewers following the season 2 premiere.
Thankfully, season 3 of The Chi actually experienced a slight growth in both ratings and viewerships compared to season 2. Not only is this proof that the series still maintains a dedicated and loyal fanbase, but that Showtime themselves also have faith in the show going forward.
The Chi season 4: Release date…
- At the time of writing, an official release date for The Chi season 4 has not been confirmed, but we expect it to premiere in fall-2021.
Whilst an official release window for the fourth season has not been revealed by Showtime, we can predict a potential release date based on the production cycle of previous instalments.
Season 1 premiered on Showtime in January 2018, with season 2 in April 2019 and season 3 in June 2020. If we assume that season 4 will also work to a (roughly) 14-month release schedule, this would put the premiere in October 2021.
However, with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic still delaying television projects across the country, we have to consider that production on season 4 could still be delayed.
We will bring you updates on the future of The Chi as soon as more information is confirmed.
