The Chosen Season 3 episode 1 was planned to release in the final quarter of 2022 but it seems that the holy drama television series will return on a later date in 2023. Its story will follow the teachings from Jesus of Nazareth and miracles witnessed by the disciples as Matthew.
Season 1 and 2 of The Chosen have been met with critical acclaim for its beautiful story and accurate portrayal of Jesus Christ’s life. More than 150 million people have watched the series by the time Season 2 ended in June 2021.
Anyone can follow Jesus Christ but becoming like him in real life is nearly impossible today. The Chosen is a historical drama series directed and written by Dallas Jenkins based on the life of Jesus and the stories associated with him in Jerusalem and other regions where he traveled along with disciples.
When will Season 3 of The Chosen come out?
Neither DJ has revealed anything nor the VidAngel Studios website has mentioned any official airing date for The Chosen Season 3 Episode 1. Fans are waiting for the upcoming season like a lamb but producers aren’t revealing anything about official release date.
What they are doing is talking about behind the scenes moments. That is why some fans are losing interest in the series. They need to speed up the production process as the eight week filming has been completed and awaits editing.
Since post production period will take almost 4-5 months, we can expect The Chosen Season 3 to be released around February 2023. It will also have a total of eight holy episodes with an average runtime of 45 minutes. All episodes will be available for VidAngel subscribers and the Chosen app users.
Even though, they have planned an episode for Christmas but no official release date is given for the grand arrival. We genuinely love The chosen and will update this information when new announcements will be made from the side of original creators.
The pilot episode was released in Dec 2017. Then, first season of The Chosen came out in April 2019 while the second season started premiering in April 2021. Season 3 will probably follow the same pattern and return soon as the production is ongoing.
DJ is trying to release The Chosen Season 3 with the newest episodes as soon as possible but his health issues are coming under his way. The Chosen Season 3 will continue to explore more stories from the gospels and provide insight into Jesus Christ’s life and ministry. The all-star cast is expected to return for the third season.
Is Season 3 of the Chosen confirmed?
The renewal was announced in Dec 2021 and the principal filming began in the first week of May and wrapped up recently in July 2022. Since post production period will take some time, we can expect the show to return sometime in 2023.
The series is really popular among Jesus lovers because of its true depiction and realistic approach to the bible stories.
The third season is expected to follow the same pattern as the previous two seasons, with an average of eight episodes. Season 3 will pick up where Season 2 left off, with Jesus Christ’s disciples trying to figure out what to do next after he is apprehended by the Romans.
The Chosen Season 3 Episode 1 Recap
A small four minute scene was shown in the recent livestream of The Chosen. That was a rough cut from the opening of season 3. It shows flashback scenes where Matthew is shown talking to his father, Alphaeus.
This also answers to our question why Matthew’s father disowned him. It was because Matthew was supporting the tax collectors and helping enemies to slay his own people. He was building huge wealth for himself without caring for his people.
That’s why people despised him and his father decided to disown him because Matthew has bring shame to the family.

The Chosen Season 3 Plot
The ending of The Chosen Season 2 concludes with the preparation of Sermon and disciples arguing each other on the disappearance of Jesus. A high ranking Sanhedrin member was completely stunned on seeing the Shmuel’s report of Jesus while thousands of people arrive at the sermon to play their part.
In the chosen season 3, Pharisees and Quintus will try to assassinate one of the closest disciple of Christ and slowly find Jesus as the main threat to the fall of Roman government. However, the disciples come under their way and will rebel against the actions of roman emperors.
On the other hand, John will be seen entering Jerusalem and get arrested for raising his voice against the wrong deeds of evil King but he will be executed ruthlessly by Herod. However, he will not be spared after that and God will punish him and take revenge of his lovely disciple, John The Baptist.
