“’The Chi’ revels in revealing the beating heart of the South Side of Chicago,” said Gary Levine, president of entertainment at Showtime in a statement. “We, like our viewers, have fallen in love with these characters and we remain eager to see where Lena and her fellow artists will take them in season three.”
And Lena Waithe just keeps on winning.
In addition to producing series for Showtime and BET, she plans to take her talents in front of the camera for role on HBO’s Westworld.
