The CW network has announced that it will be the new home for ‘The Chosen’, a series based on the life and teachings of Jesus. The series was created, directed, and produced by Dallas Jenkins and provides an intimate look at Jesus’ revolutionary life and teachings, set against the backdrop of Jewish oppression in first-century Israel.

The series, which is planned to run for seven seasons, has so far produced three seasons with a fourth currently in production. Jonathan Roumie plays the role of Jesus, and Yasmine al-Bustami, known from NCIS: Hawai’i, co-stars as Rahmah, a vintner who becomes one of the women helping Jesus’ ministry.

The CW plans to air the first three seasons consecutively, starting on Sunday, July 16 at 8/7c, with the Season 3 finale airing on Christmas Eve. As a result, the previously planned ‘I Am’ documentary series will be postponed to Q1 2024.
