The Chosen One parents guide: Is it safe for kids to watch?
The Chosen One has been given a TV-MA age rating. That means the series is intended for mature audiences and unsuitable for children under the age of 17. Netflix gave this series a TV-MA for content like suicide and strong language.
Mature content could contain graphic violence, sexual content, strong language, and other adult themes. In the case of The Chosen One, it’s been given a mature rating due to language and the fact that suicide is either discussed or portrayed, per the episode information section on the streaming service.
We recommend keeping this fantasy series away from your kids and young teens, at least until you check it out yourself first.
The Chosen One is now streaming on Netflix.
