Chosen Season 4 will not be streaming as usual instead the entire season will be released in exclusively in movie theaters before the streaming premiere. Get the first look at the new season.
The cultural phenomena series based on Jesus's life (Jonathan Roumie) boasts impressive viewing numbers since it premiered on streaming platforms, but the decision for a theatrical run is an odd choice. The entire season will not be screened at once but rolled out over a few weeks.
The rollout will occur over a few weeks rather than screening the entire season at once. The rollout of Season 4 in theaters will begin with a two-week run of Episodes 1-3 on February 1, 2024, followed by Episodes 4-6 in theaters beginning February 15, and Episodes 7-8 beginning February 29 via Fathom Events in the U.S. and Canada.

DALLAS - Oct. 16, 2023 — For the first time ever, the full season of a streaming-TV show will be released exclusively in theaters, distributed by Fathom Events. The Chosen, the groundbreaking historical drama that has become one of the most-watched shows in the world, announced its Season 4 theatrical release plan to more than 3,500 avid fans Sunday night in Dallas, TX at “The Chosen Insiders Conference” and another several thousand attending virtually. Attendees were also given a first-look at The Chosen: Season 4 teaser trailer.
Last season, fans enjoyed the opportunity to see the premiere and finale episodes of The Chosen together in theaters.
“Every time we’ve dipped our toes in the theatrical waters, viewers have overwhelmingly told us they want more. After seeing the Season 4 episodes, we knew we’d be doing our fans a disservice if we denied them the chance to see them all on a big screen with others they can laugh and cry with,” said The Chosen’s creator and director, Dallas Jenkins.
“We are thrilled to collaborate again with The Chosen team to bring fans the entire fourth season to cinemas before it is available elsewhere,” said Ray Nutt, CEO of Fathom Events. “It is a testament to the big screen’s power to unite people and have them share in this communal experience.”
Clashing kingdoms. Rival rulers. The enemies of Jesus close in while His followers struggle to keep up, leaving Him to carry the burden alone. Season 4 promises to deliver where last season’s emotional walking on water finale left off.
The rollout of Season 4 in theaters will begin with a two-week run of Episodes 1-3 on February 1, 2024, followed by Episodes 4-6 in theaters beginning February 15, and Episodes 7-8 beginning February 29 via Fathom Events in the U.S. and Canada. The premiere episodes will also be released in theaters in LATAM, the UK, Poland, Australia, and New Zealand via a consortium of distributors. After the full-season run in theaters concludes, The Chosen will announce the debut across streaming platforms including The Chosen TV and mobile apps, broadcast and cable TV.
The Chosen has become a cultural phenomenon with impressive performance across streaming platforms such as Amazon Prime, Peacock, and Netflix, and top ratings weekly domestically on The CW.
What began as a pioneering crowd-funded project has now evolved into a global sensation with more than 10 million social media followers. Due to the efforts of the Come and See Foundation,The Chosen is on pace to be the most translated series in history, as the first three seasons will soon be available in 50 languages with plans to subtitle in more than 600.
The Chosen is a testament to the power of independent production, with Dallas Jenkins serving as writer, director, and producer. Lionsgate is the show’s global television distributor.
