Viewers can watch the series for free in The Chosen app. Additional streaming and broadcast options for Season 4 viewing will be announced soon. There is no official word yet but the options will likely include the CW, which a year ago picked up the first three seasons and has been The Chosen‘s US broadcast home.

Created, written, directed and produced by Jenkins, The Chosen is a groundbreaking historical drama based on the life of Jesus, seen through the eyes of those who knew him.

Season 4 is billed as clashing kingdoms. Rival rulers. The enemies of Jesus close in while His followers struggle to keep up, leaving Him to carry the burden alone. Threatened by the reality of Jesus’ growing influence, religious leaders do the unthinkable—ally with their Roman oppressors. As the seeds of betrayal are planted and opposition to Jesus’ message turns violent, He’s left with no alternative but demand his followers rise up.

The season was first released in theaters in 31 territories around the globe, the series’ most successful theatrical run ever.

With over 200 million viewers, The Chosen is one of the most-watched shows in the world. The series is consistently a top performer across streaming platforms Amazon Prime, Peacock, and Netflix plus a top-rated broadcast weekly on The CW. The series, which began as a crowd-funded project, has now garnered over 770 million episode views and more than 13 million social media followers.

“We wanted to offer fans a chance to see it on the big screen together in theaters,” Jenkins said. “But I’ve maintained the show will always ultimately be available free and easy, and we’re now ready for our livestreams, which are going to be bonkers this year.”

Lionsgate is the show’s global TV distributor.
