As we reported at the end of last month when The Chosen wrapped filming in Texas, the team is already in post-production. Now comes word from show creator/director Dallas Jenkins that the first three episodes of the eight-episode third season are picture locked.

"They still need music and color correction and sound fixes and all that kind of stuff, but the editing piece is done."

In the announcement, which Jenkins made on social media and features a graphic saying "On schedule!" over the middle of the entire video, the director adds that this means the first two episodes are consequently still on target to release together in U.S. movie theaters on November 18th. They will then "come to streaming a few weeks after that," according to Jenkins, and will likely be followed by a weekly release of each of the remaining episodes.


The theatrical release will require fans to purchase tickets, but the streaming release is to remain free in keeping with past practice of the faith-based show, which is funded primarily through a pay-it-forward program and sales of show-related merchandise.
