Nashville, TN (December 22, 2022)
From the global phenomenon The Chosen, a special Christmas episode is airing on The CW this Friday, December 23 at 8pm ET.
“I’m thrilled The CW is airing this Christmas episode, it’s a great introduction to The Chosen to anyone who hasn’t seen it yet. The perspective we show of this story honors the gospel narrative while also exploring the cultural, historical, and personal context that hasn’t been portrayed before,” says Dallas Jenkins, creator of The Chosen.
The special Christmas episode of The Chosen portrays the birth of Christ from the perspective of Mary and Joseph. The story goes back and forth between their journey to Bethlehem and 10 years after the death of Christ, where an older Mary shares the story with Mary Magdalene.
The episode will be followed by an incredible performance of “Joy to the World (Joyful Joyful)” by Christian music artist Phil Wickham on the set featuring Jordan Feliz, Bryan & Katie Torwalt, Maverick City, and The Bonner Family.
