The Chosen Season 4 is streaming now, but it’s not as simple as logging on and watching the whole thing — so here’s a rundown of how to watch it and when all of the episodes will drop.

The Chosen, developed by Dallas Jenkins, is one of the most-watched shows of the past five years, believed to have been viewed (at least in part) by more than 500 million people.

The Chosen cast has been led by Jonathan Roumie for its whole run, with each season chronicling the life and ministry of the Messiah and the people (and disciples) who fall into his orbit, either witnessing his miracles, experiencing them first-hand, or listening to his teachings.

Despite Season 4 being well-received by fans in theatres, it has run into significant difficulties — here’s what we know about its streaming release ahead of The Chosen Season 5.

How to watch The Chosen Season 4

The Chosen Season 4 started streaming on the show’s official app and website on June 2, 2024.

The fourth season had been delayed after its theatrical run as a result of “legal issues” between the series and Angel Studios, its former partner — but as promised by Dallas Jenkins, its streaming release has finally begun.

New episodes of The Chosen are released on Thursday and Sunday via The Chosen app. The app is the new official streaming home, so don’t expect it to show up on Angel Studios’ app.

The first four episodes of The Chosen Season 4 were previously available to stream for church screenings but not for individual use.

The Chosen Season 4 streaming release schedule

All eight episodes of The Chosen Season 4 will be released between June 2-27, 2024. We’ve broken down the full schedule below:

  • Episode 1: Promises (Sunday, June 2, 2024) – “An intoxicating dance leads Herod to put an end to John the Baptizer, but no one can stop what — or Who — he’s ushered in.”
  • Episode 2: Confessions (Thursday, June 6, 2024) – “Jesus founds his church on unholy ground and Simon goes public with Jesus’ true identity, getting a new name in the process. But can the new ‘Peter’ forgive old wrongs?
  • Episode 3: Moon to Blood (Sunday, June 9, 2024) – “When Jesus heals a blind man on the Sabbath, religious leaders confront him, drawing a riotous crowd. Gaius defies a direct order leading Quintus to take matters — and someone’s life — into his own hands.”
  • Episode 4: Calm Before (Thursday, June 13, 2024) – “Beginning with a funeral procession, time marches rapidly toward the final days of Jesus’ ministry. While the disciples seek status for themselves, a Roman ruler comes with a humble request.”
  • Episode 5: Sitting, Serving, Scheming (Sunday, June 16, 2024) – “Roman soldiers demand the disciples carry their armor, but Jesus goes one step farther. Frustrated by the direction of Jesus’ ministry, Judas visits an old friend for advice.”
  • Episode 6: Dedication (Thursday, June 20, 2024) – “Jesus and the disciples celebrate Hanukkah. Matthew confronts Judas about irregularities, and the festival turns into a fight, then flight. The disciples escape with their lives, but learn a friend hasn’t been so lucky.”
  • Episode 7: The Last Sign (Sunday, June 23, 2024) – “Jesus brings Lazarus back to life — and sets off the chain of events that will lead to His own death.”
  • Episode 8: Humble (Thursday, June 27, 2024) – “Jesus refuses to look and act like the Messiah everyone expects — arriving like a lamb instead of a lion and riding a donkey instead of a war horse.”

Why you should buy The Chosen Season 4 on Blu-ray

If you order The Chosen Season 4 on Blu-ray or DVD, you’ll be able to watch the whole season before those on streaming.

According to Jenkins, “If you pre-ordered the DVD, the moment we get the announcement, we’re gonna be able to ship it to you.”

The Chosen Season 4 Blu-Ray is available to buy now, and it should be shipping to customers imminently (if not already). ““You’ll get to watch all eight episodes if you’re old school. Maybe you’re a little technologically behind and you’ve still got a DVD player, but in this case the last shall be first and you’ll be able to watch all eight episodes at once if you want,” Jenkins added.

Will The Chosen Season 4 be shown on TV?

The Chosen Season 4 will air on The CW, beginning on September 1, 2024, with a two-hour premiere.

The CW makes sense, as it was the broadcast home of the previous seasons. The CW announced the pick-up on June 3, along with renewal orders for All-American and Penn & Teller: Fool Us.

In an earlier statement, CW entertainment president Brad Schwartz said: “The Chosen is based on the biggest IP of all time and is truly a one-of-a-kind series that tells this historically significant story in a captivating, dramatic, and premium way.

“This show has already connected deeply with viewers around the world, and The CW will expand its audience even further.”

Jenkins added: “The CW has always been bold and unique, which is perfect for us. Plus, Brad Schwartz made it clear a while ago he loves and respects The Chosen, so we know it’ll be in great hands.”
