The popular crowd-funded historical drama series The Chosen (not to be confused with Netflix Original series The Chosen One despite their similar premises) has been added to Netflix! Set during the first century, The Chosen centers on the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Jonathan Roumie stars in the lead role of Jesus.

Not only do episodes air for free on the show’s official website and app, it has also been translated into hundreds of languages and licensed to various streaming services around the world. Some special episodes have even received theatrical releases. It has been renewed through season 7.
