CHICAGO — A show with a focus on Chicago has started a unique sixth season this week.

“The Chi,” which focuses on a number of characters who live on the south side of the city, is now streaming the first eight episodes on Showtime/Paramount+. This is the first time that the drama will split a season in half, with the other eight episodes being released at a later date.

Dean Richards took a look at that show and many others in this edition of “Dean’s Home Video,” on Wednesday’s WGN Morning News.

He also looked at a number of releases on streaming services that have either debuted or will do so before the end of the week. That includes season 3 of “Only Murders in the Building,” season 4 of “High School Musical,” “Painkiller,” season 7 of “Billions,” “Heart of Stone,” a new season of “Hard Knocks,” and more.

You can watch this edition of “Dean’s Home Video” from the August 9 WGN Morning News in the video above.
