The first two episodes of Season 3 opened in theaters in November and grossed more than $8 million. That success was a factor in the decision to release the last two episodes in theaters.

“Because of the success of Episodes 1 and 2, because of the success of the Christmas special last year, theaters are saying, ‘We want ‘The Chosen’ in our theater,’” he said in the video livestream. “The theaters are demanding it, and you (fans) are demanding it ... and the episodes (scope of the story) demand it.”

“The Chosen” is television series that tells about the life of Jesus Christ. The final two episodes will include scenes depicting Jesus and the feeding of the 5,000. Jenkins also promised “crowd-erupt moments” and “a little bit of a twist” coming in the story.

“These episodes are big,” he said. “If you can see it in theaters, do it.”
