The Chosen is a historical drama based on the life of Jesus and those who knew him. Set against the backdrop of Roman oppression in first-century Israel, the series offers an authentic look at Jesus’ revolutionary life and teachings.


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 have faith.


As the highest-ever crowdfunded TV series in production, total viewership numbers surpassed 400 million across all episodes. Critics and fans have praised its historical and biblical accuracy, playful spirit, stirring drama, genuine humour, and disruptive impact. The Chosen Season 4, for the first time ever, comes to the big screen, premiering episodes 1 & 2 on 28 March at a cinema near you.


Much loved for its relatable characters and relevant storylines, The Chosen is one of the most-watched shows globally, consistently a top performer across multiple streaming platforms globally. What started as a crowd-funded project, became the world’s number 1 crowd funded television series of all time and to date, the series has garnered over 200 million views.
