THE CHOSEN Reaches Over 100 Million Viewers as Season 4 Filming Begins
By Movieguide® Contributor
The cast and crew of THE CHOSEN gathered in Midlothian, Texas, this week to begin filming season 4 as the show recently reached a major milestone.
“We’re back,” the series official Instagram posted with a picture of a clapperboard used on set.
Season 4 is the second season to be filmed on the show’s new 900-acre home. The property includes a 30,000-square-foot soundstage and a replica first-century village, allowing the cast to feel like they are really living in biblical times.
“It feels like you’re really in Capernaum, 2,000 years ago,” Noah James, who portrays Andrew, said. “It’s unbelievable… You feel like you can really seep yourself in the time and feel the authenticity.”
The show has found incredible success in its first three seasons, reaching an estimated 108 million people worldwide, according to the Angel Studios website. Their goal is to reach 1 billion people by the end of the seven planned seasons.
Season 4 of THE CHOSEN will include eight episodes and will continue to follow Jesus and the disciples as their story unfolds. The season is slated to release sometime in 2024.
Movieguide® previously reported on THE CHOSEN’s success:
The first two episodes of the third season of THE CHOSEN were released in theaters this Thanksgiving, outperforming big Hollywood movies at the box office.
For the second straight week, THE CHOSEN’s episodes made it into the Top 10 list of high-earning movies at the box office.
On week two, THE CHOSEN made No. 9 on the box office ranking list, with $1.6 million in gross ticket sales. Their week one ranking was No. 3, with $8.7 million in ticket sales.
For comparison, SHE SAID, a movie about the journalists who broke the story about Harvey Weinstein’s pattern of sexual abuse, came in at No. 10 on its second week, making $1.1 million.
Many are pointing out that THE CHOSEN’s box office success is sending a message to Hollywood about the kind of content that sells tickets.
