The new Showtime series ‘The Chi’ has been renewed for a second season after consistent successful numbers in viewership from the first season:
“Showtime has ordered a second season of hit drama series The Chi, created and executive produced by Lena Waithe (Master of None), and executive produced by Common (Selma). In addition, Ayanna Floyd Davis (Empire, Hannibal) has signed on for Season 2 as executive producer and showrunner. The series, produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, will go back into production in Chicago later this year.
The January 7 premiere of The Chi was the strongest series for Showtime since Billions in 2016. The series has averaged four million weekly viewers across platforms, with its most recent episode outperforming the premiere by 41 percent, according to Showtime.”
