Watch the Premiere of Showtime’s ‘The Chi’

Our new favorite show of 2018 has arrived. The series premiere of SHOWTIME’s The Chi, created and executive produced by Emmy winner Lena Waithe (Masters of None), is available for free on YouTube and SHOWTIME On-Demand. You can watch the full premiere below.

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. 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. The ensemble cast includes Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton), Jacob Latimore (Sleight), Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine (Queen of Katwe), Alex Hibbert (Moonlight), Yolonda Ross (Treme, The Get Down), Armando Riesco (Bull) and Tiffany Boone (The Following).


The Chi premieres on Sunday, January 7th 2018 at 10pm ET/PT on SHOWTIME. (TV14).
