Messiah has been canceled after a single season.
Netflix has decided not to bring back the drama series for a second season, Deadline reports.
Star Wil Traval reacted to the news on Instagram on Thursday (March 26).
“It’s a very sad day today,” he wrote. “I have just received news from Netflix that there will be no season 2 of #messiah I wanted to say to all the fans thank you for your support and love. I wish things were different.”
Messiah focused on “the lines among religion, faith and politics. When a CIA officer investigates a man — referred to by some as Al-Masih (Mehdi Dehbi) — attracting international attention and followers through acts of public disruption, she embarks on a global, high-stakes mission to uncover whether he is a divine entity or a deceptive con artist.”
Sources told the outlet that due to the show’s large international cast and the fact that it’s shot in various locations around the globe, production would be difficult anytime soon due to the current health crisis.
The series also faced some controversy for various reasons, such as the name al-Masih and a scene that took place on Jerusalem’s sacred Temple Mount.
Messiah also starred Tomer Sisley, Michelle Monaghan, John Ortiz, Melinda Page Hamilton, Stefania LaVie Owen, Jane Adams, Sayyid El Alami, and Fares Landoulsi.
