Season 3 of ‘The Chosen will be available for free on the BYUtv app and BYUtv.org beginning on Sunday, December 11. The first episode will be accessible on Sunday, and fresh episodes will be released every Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. The third episode will air on Christmas Day.
The first two episodes were broadcast in cinemas last month and grossed more than $14 million before airing on BYUtv.
“The Chosen” director and creator Dallas Jenkins said last month on Facebook, “Season 3 starts up where Season 2 left off… with Jesus giving history’s most famous discourse. What follows are the ramifications of his teachings. Because of this discourse, the number of followers (and opponents of) Jesus grows tremendously. This leads to turmoil, upheaval, and, yes, doubt, and we don’t sugarcoat any of it in this season. I tell you that you will be asked some difficult questions that you have no doubt encountered yourself. But… He provides rest.”
Jenkins also said that the actors and crew were not spared from the significant emotional elements of the sermons included in Season 3. Jenkins said that “the production of Season 3 for definitely left us tired and heavy-laden” due to supply chain concerns influencing construction and COVID delays.
Fans, on the other hand, are looking forward to the new episodes and the emotional themes that this new season will deliver.
“Growing up in a Christian family, I have seen numerous programs about Jesus but this one… this one has impacted me like nothing else,” LaDonna Burke said on YouTube. It’s opened my eyes and given me a fresh perspective on the four gospels.”
“This program is transforming my life—and it is just the beginning,” Alec Carr wrote. Thank you. Every episode has made me weep, and I’m not sure whether they’re joyful or sad tears. However, I believe it is just a sense of hope. Hope for something better than myself and everyone else. It’s an inexplicable sensation, yet I don’t want to live without it.”
“I am an agnostic who enjoys this program!” said Ian Chandler. It reveals how concerned Jesus was with the individuals he interacted with. He is not robotic, as in many previous versions. He feels quite humane here. Sure, I’m suspicious of its supernatural elements, but the character development, cinematography, acting, and tone more than make up for it! “Here’s to an incredible, theatrical season 3!”
