‘The Chosen’ Season 4 Picked Up By The CW

It’s official. The CW has picked up the fourth season of biblical drama series The Chosen.

The CW has been The Chosen‘s U.S. broadcast home since the network picked up the first three seasons one year ago, so it was expected that the fourth season would air on CW as well.

Streaming dates were announced last month, with the first episode of Season 4 premiering last night on The Chosen app. The second episode will be available Thursday, June 6 at 8:30 p.m. ET, with subsequent episodes released on Sundays at 7 p.m. ET and Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. ET over four weeks. The digital release was delayed pending resolution of a lawsuit between Angel Studios and series producer The Chosen LLC. Angel Studios has said it plans to appeal an arbitrator’s ruling that ended its relationship with the production company.

The Chosen also is available on BYUtv, the sole streaming service and broadcast network streaming season 4 of the series 24 hours after The Chosen app, beginning tonight, Monday, June 3 at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT and linear broadcasts airing each succeeding Sunday at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT.

Created, written, directed and produced by Dallas Jenkins, The Chosen is a groundbreaking historical drama based on the life of Jesus, seen through the eyes of those who knew him.

Season 4 is billed as clashing kingdoms. Rival rulers. The enemies of Jesus close in while His followers struggle to keep up, leaving Him to carry the burden alone. Threatened by the reality of Jesus’ growing influence, religious leaders do the unthinkable—ally with their Roman oppressors. As the seeds of betrayal are planted and opposition to Jesus’ message turns violent, He’s left with no alternative but demand his followers rise up.
