‘It’s Going to Be Brutal’: THE CHOSEN Cast Talk Season 4

By Movieguide® Contributor

THE CHOSEN Season 4 will hit the big screen beginning Feb. 1, and the cast is preparing fans for what they “have to dread” in the next season.

“You shouldn’t watch Season 4 if you don’t react well to death,” Paras Patel, who plays Matthew, said in a YouTube video.

Jonathan Roumie, who portrays Jesus, added, “It’s going to be brutal. What nerve to take our fans on such an emotional rollercoaster.”

Per Screen Rant, “It’s known that the death of John the Baptist will be a part of the next season, as will the build-up towards the Crucifixion and Judas Iscariot’s betrayal. Whether season 4 of THE CHOSEN will include the final days of Christ, however, hasn’t been confirmed, and likely won’t be before the release date.”

“I’ve had people on Instagram reaching out being like, ‘I’m dreading it,’ since like Season 2,” said David Amito, who plays John the Baptist. “‘I’m dreading it.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, don’t worry about it,’ and this year, they’re like, ‘I’m dreading it.’ I just stay quiet. I’m like, ‘Well, here it is. We all knew this was coming.”

“We know where we’re going,” added Demetrios Troy, who plays Lazarus, “and there is no stopping that.”

THE CHOSEN creator and director Dallas Jenkins previously explained that, as Christ’s crucifixion approaches, “extreme pain and sadness” will be prominent themes in the show.

“And of course, there’s also some extreme joy that’s coming. But on the way there, Jesus is getting increasingly sad because of the fact that things are getting increasingly heavy,” he told Fox News.

Jenkins added, “We never shy away from the tough parts. I think the whole message of the Gospel relies on the tough stuff. In your pain, in your struggles, in your questions there is joy and peace that only comes from God.”

Season 4 will arrive in theaters this February. Movieguide® previously reported on the episode release schedule:

Season 4 of THE CHOSEN will arrive in theaters in early 2024…

“Every time we’ve dipped our toes in the theatrical waters, viewers have overwhelmingly told us they want more,” creator and director Dallas Jenkins explained in the statement. “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.”

Ray Nutt, CEO of Fathom Events, added, “We are thrilled to collaborate again with THE CHOSEN team to bring fans the entire fourth season to cinemas before it is available elsewhere. It is a testament to the big screen’s power to unite people and have them share in this communal experience.”

Season 4 will start showing in theaters February 1, with a two-week run of the first three episodes. Episodes 4-6 will show for two weeks starting February 15, and the season’s last two episodes will be released February 29.
