Series creator Lena Waithe’s homage to Chicago’s South Side returns with the second half of its sixth season, already renewed for Season 7. In the opener, Victor (Luke James) and Emmett (Jacob Latimore) face the consequences of taking on powerful, vengeful Douda (Curtiss Cook), while matriarch Alicia (Lynn Whitfield) cashes in a big favor.
