We all know the struggle: you sit down after a long day of child rearing, adulting, and the 9-5 grind, only to spend the precious hour before bed scrolling through possible TV show options, just to wind up watching Friends for the umpteenth time.
Well look no further folks, because The Chosen is the binge-worthy television series you didn’t know you were missing, and it’s perfect for the whole family!
A friend of ours recommended The Chosen while we were all at home during 2020. And if I’m being honest, he didn’t just recommend it, he RAVED about it.
It’s the first ever multi-season show about the life and Gospel of Jesus Christ, and it’s FREE to stream on any device through The Chosen app, and now on Amazon Prime Video.
The series, released by VidAngel, has garnered attention in Christian circles and secular ones, as it became the No. 1 crowdfunded media project in history, with over 16,000 investors giving $10 million in 2019 to see the project come to fruition.
This isn’t your average “Jesus Project.” The Chosen has earned a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and 9.8 stars on IMDB. In January 2020, The Chosen joined acclaimed productions like Netflix’s The Crown and Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings, earning two Movieguide Award nominations. Actor Jonathan Roumie, who portrays Jesus in the series, took home the Grace Award for a TV Performance. In 2022, the show took home a Dove Award for “Inspirational Film of the Year.”
The show has become a worldwide phenomenon, garnering more than 413 million views after just two seasons. All episodes of The Chosen: Season 3 are also now available, with experts suggesting the viewership will soar past that half-billion mark. The final two episodes of Season 3 were premiered as one production in theaters on February 2nd and 3rd, grossing nearly $14.7 worldwide in its run.
