After two successful seasons released last year, will the Brazilian thriller return for more?
The Chosen One (O Escolhido) is one of Netflix's addition to its growing list of international original titles.
The heart-stopping Brazilian thriller features deadly viruses, young doctors, and a secluded community led by a cult.
After two successful episodes launched last year, is the giant streamer renewing the show for another season?
Here's what we know so far.
There is still no announcement regarding The Chosen One (O Escolhido)'s renewal status as of this writing. The Brazilian thriller has released two seasons, each with six intense episodes on the streaming platform.
The show premiered on Netflix on June 28, 2019. Season 2 immediately followed and was released on December 6 of the same year
The Chosen One (O Escolhido) is yet to get renewed for season 3. The show only has six episodes, though, and we're hoping this means shorter production once the show gets the go signal.
There was only six months interval between season 1 and season 2's release date. Although we're assuming that season 3 production would follow the same timeline, we are never crossing out possible delays due to the Coronavirus pandemic should the show get renewed soon.
The Chosen One (O Escolhido) follows three young doctors tasked to vaccinate an entire community against a mutated Zika Virus. The mutated virus has become so deadly it poses a threat of killing the small village's whole population if the people don't get vaccinated in time.
What was supposed to be a simple task turned out to be a deadly assignment. Brainwashed by a mysterious cult leader known as The Chosen One, the villagers refused to get vaccinated. The doctors found themselves untangling the mysteries of the secret community while trying to survive the unfathomable wrath of the people who believe in the power of faith and not of science.
The series gets more intense as season 2 progresses. The cult leader gets increasingly merciless. Towards the end, The Chosen One suffered a significant blow after the villagers' lies get exposed more than ever.
If the show gets renewed for season 3, we're expecting more pulse-racing episodes as we continue to chronicle the fate of the central characters.
Nothing is confirmed yet, but we're likely to see major cast members reprise their roles.
The series' all Brazilian cast include Paloma Bernardi, Pedro Caetano, and Gutto Szuster as the young doctors Lúcia Santeiro, Damião Almeida, and Enzo Vergani respectively.
Renan Tenca, who plays the enigmatic cult leader, also known as ‘The Chosen One,’ is also expected to return for another face-off.
The Chosen One (O Escolhido) is yet to get the green signal for season 3.
We will keep checking for updates for you.
