The Chi returns with renewed purpose but the same struggle to focus

Season one of Lena Waithe’s The Chi didn’t lack for ambition—the hourlong drama wove an interconnected story of the residents of Chicago’s South Side, the much discussed, but rarely depicted on screen, neighborhood where Waithe grew up. Along with executive producers Common, Elwood Reid, and Rick Famuyiwa, Waithe brought great humanity and nuance to a narrative that’s often reduced to law-and-order talking points in local and national politics.
