Milo Ventimiglia's Chosen Renewed For Season 2
Chosen has been chosen for a second season at Crackle. The multi-platform entertainment network debuted Milo Ventimiglia's suspenseful new series earlier this year. The first season followed Ventimiglia's character Ian, a husband, father and attorney who receives a mysterious box with a photo of a person in it and instructions to kill that stranger at some point within the next three days. His life is soon turned upside down as he's caught in a violent and mysterious web as he tries to survive and keep his family safe.
Crackle announced this week that they've greenlit a second season of the series. The first season brought in 2.4 million streams in under ten weeks over various viewing platforms.
“‘Chosen’ confirms our belief that there is a strong appetite for compelling, high-quality original series in the digital space,” said Eric Berger, Executive Vice President, Digital Networks for Sony Pictures Television. “Whether it was online, on mobile or through a connected TV device, our audience spent a significant amount of time with the show, following it through to its conclusion. We are excited to announce that we are moving forward with a second season.”
Chosen is created by Ben Ketai and Ryan Lewis, with star Milo Ventimiglia executive producing. The first season was great, wasting no time bringing us into the story and then quickly escalating, building momentum as Ventimiglia's character found himself unwillingly caught up in a dangerous, life-threatening situation. It's definitely good news to hear that there's a new season on the way. Crackle says production will get started on Season 2 this summer, but there's no word on when they expect to release it or how many episodes it will include.
Here's the first episode of Season 1, and you can watch the rest at Crackle's website. They'll be available to view there until mid-May 2013.
