Storyline

On Chicago's south side, an average day finds kids prepping for school as their parents head off to work, young adults trying to make a living, and the elders keeping an eye on things from their front porches. But in this tough neighborhood, real dangers threaten daily to squelch dreams, and the simplest decisions can have life or death consequences. From Emmy® winner Lena Waithe, The Chi is a timely coming-of-age drama series centered on a group of residents who become linked by coincidence but bonded by the need for connection and redemption.

Now I Know What People Meant About Season 3
13 November 2020 | by jotisg-1See all my reviews

I read the reviews of the people saying Season 3 was terrible compared to 1 and 2 snd had to see for myself. Sorry for doubting you. Reasons why? (1) Did we really need LaLa Anthony and Kandi Burress added to the cast? (2) Kidnapping plot was ridiculous (3) Too much ancillary plots no one cared about

Hope it can recover.
