The CW will air new episodes of The Chosen Season 3, making its premiere broadcast television debut.
The Chosen has garnered attention within Christian communities, possibly stemming from a shortage of high-quality Christian entertainment alternatives.
The pilot was released in 2017 but began its first season in 2019. The series has now released 24 episodes following the life and ministry of Jesus, focusing on the people who encountered and followed him in 1st-century Judaea and Galilee.
While the series has faced some critiques regarding its production and casting, it has been commended for its authenticity and influence on faith-oriented content.
The Chosen Season 3 CW Premiere Date
The Chosen Season 3 is set to premiere on The CW on Sunday, November 5 at 8:00 p.m. with Episode 301, followed by Episode 302 on November 12 at a time yet to be announced.
This marks the Season 3 broadcast television debut, as The Chosen had previously been exclusively accessible on streaming until The CW acquired the broadcasting rights in June 2023.
The 90-minute broadcast-TV premiere of The Chosen averaged 520,000 viewers on The CW, which is a significantly larger audience compared to shows like Riverdale, Nancy Drew, and The Rising, per TV Line.
The Chosen recently revealed the release plan for its fourth season, with the first three episodes premiering in theaters in North America from February 1 to February 14, 2024. The remaining Season 4 episodes will follow throughout February.
