Season 3 of The Chosen kicks off in theaters on November 18th with the first two episodes dropping that day. The trailer for Season 3 hit the #1 trending spot on YouTube and had close to 1 million views in less than two days.
Here are ten things you’ll want to know about The Chosen Season 3.
Where Will Season 3 Begin?
Dallas Jenkins, director of The Chosen, gave us the answer in the Season 3 trailer description. He said, “Season Three picks up where Season Two left off (you should watch that season if you haven’t-—I promise Season Three will make more sense), with Jesus delivering the most famous sermon in history. What follows are the consequences of living out his teachings.”
Season 3’s Theme
The theme for Season 3 is from Matthew 11:28: “Come to me, you who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.”
Buying Tickets for the Premiere
The Chosen Season 3 begins in theaters November 18th and you can buy group tickets here now or individual tickets on this page starting 10/25. You can also visit TheChosenTickets.com, FathomEvents.com, and wherever tickets are sold.
What is Dallas Jenkins’ Goal for Season 3?
Jenkins says he wants his show to continue to honor God, per the Deseret News. “When I sit in front of the blank page for Season 3 … the blank page just wants me to make sure I continue the work I’ve been doing to honor God and the scriptures.”
A Little Bit More Darkness
“There’s going to be just a little bit more darkness in this season,” Brandon Potter, who plays Quintus in The Chosen, told The Stream’s Nancy Flory in a recent interview. “And obviously that means the hope burns brighter. … I’m proud of the things that we brought in that regard, that we get to tell as sort of a more nuanced story with a little bit more friction, a little bit more pushback, the stakes are a little bit higher.”
The Storyline of Judas
In an interview with the Deseret News, Jenkins was asked about the role that Judas will play in Season 3. He said:
“The Judas storyline is a tricky one. Not only do we need to make it compelling for the audience when they already know the tragic end, we need to answer a few questions that aren’t in the Bible.”
Disciples Going Two-by-Two
Jesus sends his disciples out two-by-two in this season and one of the interesting parts of Season 3 will be the pairings the writers decide on and how that will create intrigue in the script. If Peter and Matthew are together, that should make for some fireworks!
The Greatest Challenge
The filming of the feeding of the 5,000 according to the Dallas Jenkins, was the “hardest thing I’ve ever done” as a director. We got a brief glimpse at the result of that filming during the last episode of Season 2, and it sounds like we’ll see that again in the opening scenes of Season 3.
The Raising Of Lazarus
In the trailer for Season 3, there is a scene that shows Jesus approaching a tomb. More than likely, Season 3 will share the account of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead which should be incredible!
An Elevation in the Role of Women
In an interview on CBN News, Elizabeth Tabish addressed the fact that in Season 3 there would be an elevation in the role of women in the storyline. “Jesus elevated women, period. It’s rooted in what he did. Care, respect, and love for women.”
