The Chi Season 6 Plot
According to a press release from Paramount, the season’s summary is as follows:
“In The Chi, life reverberates between the highest highs and the lowest lows this season. Big aspirations are finally realized, but at a price. As people weigh the benefits and hazards of their next big move, they will all be put to the test in ways they could never have imagined.”
“Emmett’s (Jacob Latimore) insatiable desire to grow Smokey’s and a new risky alliance put their happy marriage to the test, as Kiesha finally makes headway toward a lucrative new job. The aftermath of Q’s assassination and its impact on the waning devotion of his inner circle are dealt with by Douda (Curtiss Cook).”
His political aspirations will be impacted by Victor’s (Luke James) audacious statement of love for both his cherished community and new girlfriend. The happily married Jada (Yolonda Ross) guides Emmett and her friends through dating situations.
While developing into a skilled master player, Kevin (Alex Hibbert) struggles with the young trappings of early independence. Michael V. Epps’s Jake starts a new company, while Shamon Brown Jr.’s Papa develops feelings for an elderly woman while struggling with his beliefs. During the sixteen jaw-dropping episodes of this season, their quests’ fates will be revealed.
