‘The Chosen’ Is Coming to The CW

Well, The CW has just made a heavenly acquisition. The broadcast network has picked up the first three seasons of the hit series The Chosen. Can we get an amen?

Created, directed and produced by Dallas Jenkins (The Resurrection of Gavin Stone, What If…), The Chosen brings the life of Jesus to the small screen in a captivating and dramatic way. Starring Jonathan Roumie as the King of Kings himself, the series has already garnered a massive following around the globe via streaming platforms. But now, it’s finding a new home on The CW, where it will make its U.S. broadcast debut.

If you haven’t seen it yet, The Chosen is not your average series. Set against the backdrop of Jewish oppression in first-century Israel, the show, currently planned for seven seasons, shares an authentic and intimate look at Jesus’ revolutionary life and teachings. The fourth season is currently in production.

The Chosen is based on the biggest IP of all time and is truly a one-of-a-kind series that tells this historically significant story in a captivating, dramatic and premium way,” said Brad Schwartz, The CW’s president of entertainment. “This show has already connected deeply with viewers around the world, and The CW will expand its audience even further.”

Added Jenkins: “The CW has always been bold and unique, which is perfect for us. Plus, Brad Schwartz made it clear a while ago he loves and respects The Chosen, so we know it’ll be in great hands.”

What started as a humble crowdsourcing project on the Angel Studios app quickly snowballed into a global sensation. The Chosen boasts a whopping 110 million viewers across 175 countries. The series has already made waves with its special-event theatrical releases, raking in a cool $35 million at the box office. Plus, it’s spawned an apparel line, best-selling books, DVDs, and there are even graphic novels in the works.

The Chosen is now distributed globally by Lionsgate.

Jim Packer, Lionsgate president of worldwide television distribution, said: “As part of our global representation of this coveted property, we are pleased that The CW will become another great partner for The Chosen. This groundbreaking series already has a massive global following, and The CW platform will provide the perfect opportunity for the show to reach existing fans and inspire new ones.”
