Who else among the cast stayed on for season 4?

Several other recurring characters from earlier seasons of The Chi also featured in its fourth season.

Among them was Nina Williams, the mother of Kevin and Keisha (played by Tyla Abercrumbie). Tiffany, Emmett’s girlfriend and the mother of his child (played by Hannaha Hall), also featured heavily.

Hannaha Hall joined the cast of The Chi in its first season, but Tiffany only became Emmett’s wife in season 4.

Incidentally, not everyone agreed that Emmett and his wife Tiffany were a great fit for each other. “What kinda example are you setting for your son?” Cheatsheet quotes one Reddit user as saying. “My problem with this storyline is it’s super unrealistic.”
