Goshen, Utah – The hit streaming series “The Chosen” is making a bold move with Season 4, opting for a full theatrical release in movie theaters. Creator, director, and co-screenwriter Dallas Jenkins believes that significant biblical events depicted in this season, such as the death of John the Baptist and the raising of Lazarus from the dead, are best experienced in theaters with a crowd and on the big screen.
The decision to release the entire new season in theaters for two-week runs comes in the wake of successful past “Chosen” releases. It is a testament to the dedication of the show’s fans, who have shown their willingness to pay admission to be part of the series’ early congregation. The episodes will later move to streaming platforms like Amazon Prime and Netflix after the theatrical run.
Previous theatrical runs for two Christmas specials and Season 3 episodes netted an impressive $40 million at the box office, making “The Chosen” a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry.
As Season 4 unfolds, fans can expect a deep dive into well-known Bible stories, including the depiction of Salome’s dance in front of her stepfather King Herod, known as the Dance of the Seven Veils, which led to the death of John the Baptist. Through plausible scenarios and untold details from the Bible, the show explores the dance preparation in a way that honors the story while providing fresh perspectives to viewers.
In terms of character development, Season 4 brings emotional and surprising deaths, introducing new dimensions to the narrative. These unexpected twists and turns aim to captivate audiences and provide a deeper understanding of the characters and their relationships within the series.
