Share This article

Season 4 of the hit series The Chosen hits the big screen Thursday. For the first time, the entire season will roll out in theaters over the next few weeks.

The first 3 episodes of the new season will be in theaters starting Thursday, followed by episodes 4 through 6 on February 15th. Finally, episodes 7 and 8 will roll out on February 29th.

CBN News' Efrem Graham traveled to Los Angeles to sit down with some of the cast, and (SPOILER ALERT) one cast member broke some news about a major unexpected twist in her storyline. And Dallas Jenkins, the mastermind behind the masterpiece on the life of Jesus and his chosen followers, told us what the new season is about.

"A good perspective in this season to notice is that Jesus is weary and heavy laden, and he needs rest. We see Him throughout the season – sometimes he gets comforted by someone else. As we get closer and closer to Holy Week, we see in scripture that Jesus gets more frustrated. He got more broken-hearted. He wept over the city of Jerusalem. He was frustrated at the religious leaders because they were not getting his message. And then yes got frustrated with those chosen to follow Him," Jenkins explained.

The first two episodes of Season 4 of The Chosen premiered two weeks ago at the historic Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, California. Speaking to a packed audience, Jenkins announced that cast member Shahar Isaac, who plays the Apostle Peter, could not be at the premiere because he was in Israel as a member of its military, according to Newsweek

On a lighter note, Jenkins joked that the reason The Chosen shoots most scenes in Texas is because Texans believe Jesus lived there. 

Unlike traditional Hollywood premieres, the cast walked across a teal-colored carpet, not the usual red. "Teal is the color of our show, man. It's the color of light, it's the color of water, it's the color of the sky. So we just thought, 'Let's be on brand.' We've always done things a little bit outside the box," he told the outlet.

Actor Jonathan Roumie, who portrays Jesus in The Chosen, wrote in a post to the social media platform X: "Epic Season 4 Premiere of @thechosentv last night. I'm telling y'all…stock up on Kleenex NOW. Such a beautiful family to be on this journey with!"

Roma Downey also attended the premiere.  

"I had the pleasure of attending the premiere of season 4 of 'The Chosen' tonight congrats to Dallas, Jonathan and all the cast and crew. Be sure to check it out !! #thechosen.

Harvest Fellowship Pastor Greg Laurie and his wife Cathe also attended the premiere. 

"Great to see so many friends at  @thechosentv premier in LA! Paras Patel (who plays Matthew) Jon Erwin, @RealRomaDowney, @Joel_Courtney (Who played me in @JesusRevMovie) his wife, @mia_scholink, and others!"

The official X account for The Chosen posted a short video of Roumie listing the reasons why fans should see the series in theaters. 

As CBN News has reported, the Season Four synopsis reads:

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.
