THE CHOSEN Maintains Spot on Prime’s Top 10 List for Over 90 Days

By Movieguide® Contributor

Bible-based hit TV show THE CHOSEN continues to impress audiences, keeping a spot in Amazon Prime Video’s top 10 list for over 90 days.

“On Monday, THE CHOSEN stood at No. 6 on the list of most popular series on Amazon Prime, leading such titles as No. 7 JACK RYAN, No. 8 THE BOYS, No. 9 SUITS, and No. 10 HARRY WILD,” Christian Headlines reported.

Maintaining a spot in Prime’s top 10 is “no small feat: Amazon Prime Video is the second largest streaming service in the United States, with 200 million customers, and has a larger library of titles than anyone, including Netflix,” Christian Headlines added.

THE CHOSEN is in its third season and will soon enter its fourth early next year, with three more seasons in queue after that. The show boasts over 600 million views across Amazon Prime, Netflix, Peacock and the CW network.

Movieguide® reported on why THE CHOSEN director Dallas Jenkins believes the show is a success:

“The thing that makes it different…you see Jesus laughing with his friends, you see him dancing with his friends at a wedding.  You see the disciples and even the enemies of Jesus as real human beings with lives and struggles and questions and doubts, dealing with the same issues that we’re dealing with today,” he said.

When asked what about the show connects with viewers, Jenkins responded, “I think the biggest thing is…the humanity of it, I think I hear that term more than anything, it’s like ‘wow these people feel real.’”

Viewers’ interest piqued in THE CHOSEN’s first episode’s TV debut. At 520,000 views, “the first episode’s viewership was pegged as ‘a far mightier audience’ than the 200,000 viewers who viewed RIVERDALE and the 400,000 people who watched NANCY DREW. Viewership for THE CHOSEN was also considerably greater than what GOTHAM KNIGHTS (235,000) and SUPERMAN AND LOIS (174,000) drew on the CW the previous Sunday during the same time slots,” The Christian Post reported.

The show is so popular that it even held its own first-ever fan conference last weekend. The event celebrated the show and allowed visitors to meet the cast and crew.

“Hosted by the show’s creator Dallas Jenkins, this weekend’s ChosenCon affair—its formal name is the Chosen Insiders Conference 2023—will celebrate the show’s success by hosting some 3,500 attendees to its in-person festivities, along with many more virtual attendees logging on to take in its offerings from around the world,” WFAA wrote.

THE CHOSEN Season 4 is slated for an in-theater release on February 1, 2024.

Movieguide® reported:

“For the first time ever, the full season of a streaming-TV show will be released exclusively in theaters, distributed by Fathom Events,” a press release about the show stated…

“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…”

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.
