If you would like to check it out, there are a couple ways you can do that. VidAngel is the distribution company, so if you have a subscription you should already have access. VidAngel is offering a free trial for a limited time. For mobile devices (phone, tablet, etc.), there is an app called “The Chosen,” so you can watch it directly on your phone if you like. The eight episodes of Season One are temporarily available on YouTube. Also, if you have a smart TV you can search for “The Chosen” and stream it to a larger screen. And if you just want to watch the first episode right now, click on the link below.
The Chosen is not being produced by a big Hollywood Studio, so they are financing it through crowd-funding. If they can raise enough money they plan to make seven seasons, which will take the story all the way through the crucifixion and resurrection. If that happens, this will be the first ever multi-season TV show about the life of Christ.
My family and I are currently watching it together on family movie nights. Because it closely follows the Gospel narrative some scenes may be a bit intense for younger viewers. I encourage you to check it out, and if you like it and want to see more, consider a donation to support the filming of future episodes. Enjoy the show!
