So what is possibly going to happen in The Chi season 5?
In the fourth season, we can see that Emmett tries to move on from Tiffany after waiting for her to choose between him or Dante. Although Tiffany finally chooses him and says that she would commit to him, she then meets her client Rob after Jada’s party and kisses him. In the previous season, we also see that Keisha and Christian officially becomes a couple.
Trig gets the footage that shows Douda beats Marcus, and uses it as a tool to blackmail the mayor to leave the town. Meanwhile, it appears that Roselyn will be the acting mayor while he’s gone.
The Chi season 5 will pretty much will be the continuation from where it left off in the previous season.
Emmett will have to deal with Tiffany who flirts with Rob, Douda also has to face the tension between him and Trig. After a good test result and her last chemo, Jada has a new life opportunity as well. The Chi season 5 will also still picture how strong the community is, through thick and thin.
