Season 4 of The Chosen is Coming Soon…and it’s Free to Everyone?

Graphic+by+Lauren+McCoy

The Chosen, a popular Christian-themed television show following the ministry of Jesus Christ, will soon debut its fourth season. The show’s first season, which first premiered in 2019, begins by following the story of Mary Magdalene, who eventually comes into contact with Jesus of Nazareth and has demons cast out of her. From here, viewers watch on as Jesus, over the course of the first and second seasons, begins to gather his disciples and reveal himself as the Messiah.
As the show has gained popularity, a common question may be asked: “Where can I find it?”
While The Chosen’s first season is on Netflix, as of the writing of this article, seasons two and three do not accompany it. There are other avenues for viewers to watch the show, such as various faith-themed streaming services. However, the team behind The Chosen made an executive decision that few shows or streaming services would consider: its own app, which is under the same name as the show.
The Chosen app allows anyone to watch the show for free. No accounts or subscription services are required; simply download the app and begin watching. The app also allows users to download episodes for later viewing.
Compared to current streaming services, it is no question that a show being presented in this format already makes it an outlier when compared to other shows on the market. As a crowdfunded show, the support of the public allows them to continue to release the show for free for viewers, with their website stating that they hope to get the show up to 1 billion views. That’s right, billion, with a “b.”
With the move to make the show entirely free for the entire world, on top of being available in more languages, it can be easy to begin to question why more shows don’t do the same. Obviously, the popularity of this show doesn’t mean that Netflix or Disney+ will follow suit, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t hope that we may see something similar in the future with other crowdfunded projects.
Season four of The Chosen is expected to release sometime in either early January or February 2024. Before releasing on the app for streaming, season four will appear in theaters, according to MovieGuide.
Check out the trailer for Season 4 of The Chosen.

    I watch seasons 1-3 on Angel Studios app. I have watched all three seasons several times; it’s that good! I had the Chosen app originally, but that automatically became the Angel Studios app.

    I like the theme of Jesus as viewed from his followers perspective, however not overly thrilled with the portrayal of Mary of Magdala. It has been disproved that she was a fallen woman, etc. in fact she is a composite of several women. Until other scrolls came to light more about this incredible woman is slowly coming to light, but we may never know her full and important story.

    I will say, I have never seen such a Brilliant Heart Stirrind depiction of Our Lord and his life and Ministry with the disciples. Jonathan Roumie has outdone Jim Caviezel and Jeffrey Hunter. Mr Roumie and his cast members have awakened all the Faithful Souls looking to grow even closer to Christ.
    Thank You to Dallas Jenkins, Jonathan Roumie and all of you exceptionally talented cast members. God Bless and God Speed.

    I really enjoy watching The Chosen series now in the section it’s written that the show is free on it’s app and that they didn’t want to have people pay for a subscription so my question is why put it theaters that people have to buy tickets to watch the first episode of season 4 now I did read where it’s going to be on the app soon after the theater release why put it in the theater yes it’s a great view because of the big screen and sound I also understand it takes money to make a movie and promotions but when you’re saying you don’t want to charge people with a subscription yet you want them to pay for movie tickets and snacks.

    That’s great that it’s free!! People REALLY need to see this!!! We need more of God in our lives these days. And The Chosen could do that for so many people that do not really know Him, and what He is capable of!

    This series has liters changed my life, I didn’t grow up in church but have been in church since 2011. I have read my bible and have a loving relationship now with God, my Lord and savior as he is now the rock on which I build my foundation. I do not want to do life without him and I want to serve him and help save souls.
    As to this series it blew me away the effect it still has on me with every episode because it brings the Bible to life. I feel more confident as it is so real to me now because of this series. I not only understand more but I can relate to it. Like example;
    Someone says something like the Bible isn’t real it’s written by man, I reply confidently saying well that be like anything I am doing now and those in my life that see and hear it hen in 1000 yrs from now write about it. Does it make me and what they saw and heard not real ?
    I am so obsessed not only with this series but with Angel studio. I watch everything y’all do and I post and brag about it all. I beg people to see the movies like “sound of freedom” a cause close to my heart and this series which started it all. It’s brought my faith and relationship with Jesus to a whole other level and I am so grateful to y’all and can I just say you guys are making a world of difference and Jonathan oh my the best Jesus evaaaa? love and respect you guys so much I can never say or write enough ??
    Y’all are Gods disciples ?

    I am thankful that it’s going to play on the app. I don’t have a theater near me and I wouldn’t want to watch it in a theater with a lot of people anyway. Thanking Dallas and all involved for bringing to my home. I am really excited, also anticipating a rough time with it. Love and respect to all.

    I love the Chosen and everyone in it! Dallas uniquely chose each and everyone of the actors and actresses perfect! You can definitely tell that God was leading Dallas and he has the whole chosen set people and everyone in his hands! I thank God for how he has blessed us with this movie and with Dallas coming up with it I watch it all the time it makes me feel closer to God! Dallas couldn’t have picked a better man who played Jesus! I’m so ready to see number four! May God generously blessed each and everyone is involved with the chosen!
