The popular series about the life of Jesus will hit movie theaters in three installments over the next month.
The waiting is nearly over for fans of The Chosen, as the first three episodes of Season 4 release tomorrow. The show, which stars American actor Jonathan Roumie as the Jesus character, will cross the halfway mark of its planned seven season run, and the story begins to take dark turns, with opponents of the Savior ramping up their opposition.
This season features Jesus' Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem, which of course precedes His crucifixion, and in an earlier interview, series creator/director Dallas Jenkins - himself a committed Believer - stated that "the tension is mounting and the enemies are starting to close in." He also made clear that though "Jesus is getting increasingly sad because of the fact that things are getting increasingly heavy," it is not all doom and gloom since there will be "lots of miracles" and "lots of laughter."
Episodes one through three get the ball rolling tomorrow - February 1st - in theaters in America, Canada, Australia, Britian, New Zealand, Poland and Puerto Rico (they will roll out in cinemas in most of Latin America, including Mexico, on February 22nd). For those of you in the U.S., you can purchase tickets to a theater in your area via this link to distributor Fathom Events.
Those episodes run through February 14th and be followed on the 15th of this month by episodes four through six, which also run for two weeks. The final two episodes - seven and eight - release on the big screen starting on February 29th. At some point after the theatrical run, the entire season will become available for free via the show's app.
