"The Chosen" has found a new home as filming for the hit Bible series' fourth season is underway.
Lionsgate, the Canadian-American film studio, has acquired worldwide distribution rights to all seasons of the Christian series, created by writer, director and producer Dallas Jenkins.
"Lionsgate is perfect for us," said the show-runner in a statement shared with CBN's Faithwire. "They're strong and experienced in the areas we're not, but they also understand what's unique about us and will protect that. We'll continue to do what we do best unabated, and they'll expand our efforts with their tremendous distribution team."
Jim Packer, president of worldwide television distribution for Lionsgate, said it is "no surprise that an artfully crafted story about such an important historical figure, unlike anything done before, would be in great demand."
"The multi-season approach has allowed 'The Chosen' to consistently build its audience and generate a unique level of engagement," he added. "We're excited by the opportunity to elevate this incredible property to the next level of worldwide recognition and popularity."
As a property of Angel Studios, the series' original distributor, "The Chosen" saw great success.
