The Chosen is the historical drama that Dallas Jenkins has co-penned, directed as well as created that is based on the life of Jesus. The creators wanted to present the life story of God in a different manner than it was before, so it opted for an episode based story with many seasons.
The makers have opted for a unique method to fund the series- by crowdfunding, where viewers can watch it for free and pay the amount they wish to contribute to the making of the new seasons. This has made it one of the most successful crowdfunded series by earning around $40 million to date.
Where To Watch The Chosen Online?
The first two seasons of the series revolving around the life of Jesus through the eyes of the ones whom he touched can be watched for free on an application named The Chosen TV.
Other than this, both the seasons can also be streamed on DirecTV, while the first season can be enjoyed on a number of other platforms like fuboTV, Vudu, Plex, Peacock, Peacock Premium, Kanopy, Tubi TV, Pure Flix and Crackle. Unfortunately, the show isn’t available on Netflix for streaming as of now.
If you wish to buy the episodes for just season one, then you can opt for services like Google Play Movies and Amazon Prime Video, while both the season’s episodes can be purchased from iTunes and Vudu. With Christmas just around the corner, it is just the perfect time to start binge-watching the show and enjoy the holiday season.
What Is The Chosen About?
The series covers the life of Jesus from a different perspective. Not only does it enlighten one on the journey of our holy spirit but also tell it through the eyes of the individuals who met him to make it more personal and intimate.
This has enabled the story to be worth binge-watching. The first season focuses on Jesus and his disciples, while the second instalment tells about the ministry of Jesus and how it got recognised by people in large numbers.
