The Chi Plot and Cast

Jason Mitchell

While interacting with the fans, the creator Waithe did not reveal much about the plot of the upcoming season. There’s a justification waiting for the fans about Tiff and Emmett’s confrontation. There has a lot of space for Christian and Kiesha’s relationship as well. Season 5 would also work on improving the community protection programme.

We can expect that the fifth season would continue from where the fourth season ended. Meanwhile, the makers are yet to confirm further details related to Season 5.

The cast of the upcoming season includes Jason Mitchell as Brandon Johnson, Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine as Ronnie Davis, Jacob Latimore as Emmett Washington, Alex Hibbert as Kevin Williams, Tiffany Boone as Jerrika Little and Yolonda Ross as Jada Washington. We will also get to see Armando Riesco as Detective Cruz, Rolando Boyce as Darnell, Barton Fitzpatrick as Reg Taylor, Shamon Brown Jr. as Stanley, Michael V. Epps as Jake Taylor and Birgundi Baker as Kiesha Williams.
