Renewal news of 'The Chi' comes as a welcome respite, especially after 'American Gigolo' not living up to the expectations. The Chicago-set drama will now return with Season 6 — news of which was confirmed even as the Season 5 episodes were underway. The latest update is that it might be a 2023 release, which means the wait isn't too much considering fall is almost here.

When will 'The Chi' Season 6 release on Showtime?

While the news of renewal has been confirmed, there is no official release date from Showtime at the time of writing. Typically. 'The Chi' releases between May and July, with the latest season starting off in June this year. This would mean that a May or June 2023 release is on the cards. The fifth season concluded recently and by the looks of it, production will go on floors at the start of fall.

Per a Deadline report, the synopsis for Season 5 reads, "The Chi delves deeply into the many joys and complications of Black love: relationships, children, career, community, and self. Emmett (Jacob Latimore) and Tiff (Hannah Hall) forge ahead as co-parents, while Tiff moves in with Rob (Iman Shumpert). Kevin (Alex Hibbert) finds new love in gaming and Simone (Antonyah Allen), while Jake (Michael V Epps) and Papa (Shamon Brown Jr) try to resolve things with Jemma (Judae’a Brown) and Maisha (Genesis Denise Hale).

"New mom Kiesha (Birgundi Baker) works to build her life with baby Ronnie while pursuing her education, while Nina (Tyla Abercrumbie) and Dre (Miriam A Hyman) work at rebuilding their union as they support Lynae (Zaria Imani Primer). Jada (Yolonda Ross) assesses her life post-cancer with Suede (Bernard Gilbert) and Darnell (Rolando Boyce), who makes a decision on his future with Dom (La La Anthony). Roselyn’s (Kandi Burruss) new pet project places her at odds with Tracy (Tai Davis). Shaad (Jason Weaver) gets level-up love from Deja (Carolyn Michelle Smith) and takes Bakari (Ahmad Ferguson) under his wing. Meanwhile, with Douda’s (Curtiss Cook) connections and a helping hand from Shaad and Marcus (Joel Steingold), Trig (Luke James) launches a political run to help his city, but at a potential cost to him and his family."
