“We have three … pillars, and one is to ensure that all seven seasons get made,” Jantz said. “No. 2 is the translation piece, [to] translate every episode of every season into 600 languages, which is a huge task—never been done before [on] that scale.”

He said the third effort is strategic partners with global ministries to take “The Chosen” to the “farthest places of the world.” Jantz said he has been excited to see the amazing ways the show has impacted hearts and minds across the globe.

“We’re excited about … Bible engagement,” he said, noting many people are so intrigued by what they see in “The Chosen” they open up their Bibles to read what’s in Scripture. “YouVersion is finding a real uptick in their Bible engagement by showing ‘The Chosen’ on their apps.”

The show, Jantz said, has become a vehicle to point curious people toward God’s Word.

As CBN News previously reported, “The Chosen” creator Dallas Jenkins recently released a Facebook video with a shocking title: “I’ve got bad news about season 4’s release.”

That proclamation gave a clue into some of what could be expected from Jenkins’ more than 16-minute “family chat,” as he dubbed it—a candid conversation about why season four of “The Chosen” was released in theaters, the monumental cost of producing the series and upcoming plans for the show.
