The Chosen is an interesting series as some of its episodes actually had theatrical releases first. And when it comes to The Chosen season 4, the full season got that treatment! Now if you're ready to stream the new season of the series about the life of Jesus of Nazareth, the fourth installment is officially streaming on Peacock as of July 1. All 8 episodes have been added to the streamer.

According to Forbes, work on the fifth season has already started in Utah. But before we get excited about the next chapter, let's look at season 4 that's now on Peacock. We shared the official synopsis per the news outlet below:

"Clashing kingdoms. Rival rulers. The enemies of Jesus close in while His followers struggle to keep up, leaving him to carry the burden alone. Threatened by the reality of Jesus’ growing influence, religious leaders do the unthinkable—ally with their Roman oppressors. As the seeds of betrayal are planted and opposition to Jesus’ message turns violent, he’s left with no alternative but demand his followers rise up."

The Hungry Games: Alaska's Big Bear Challenge

Streaming Thursday, July 11

Well, if you like The Hunger Games franchise I guess this is a realistic and natural take on the movie. At least that's what I see when watching the trailer (below) and seeing the title of The Hungry Games: Alaskas Big Bear Challenge! I'm actually intrigued about this one, and will definitely be checking out this unique docuseries.

During the three, hour-long episodes, we'll see brown bears in Alaska's Katami National Park "compete" as they prepare for winter hibernation. This includes getting 3 million calories and gaining up to 200 pounds. And they have 150 days to do it! New Zealand actor and comedian Rhys Darby will be narrating the series. And you can already get a feel for his light-heartedness with his voiceover in the trailer above. Are you ready to see who comes out the victor, so to speak?
