The title compound, C12H9ClN2OS2, exists in the thio­amide form with an intra­molecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bond across the thio­urea and the carbonyl group. The dihedral angle between the rings is 10.36 (11)°. In the crystal structure, mol­ecules are linked into chains by weak inter­molecular C—H⋯Cl hydrogen-bonding inter­actions.
