There will be no season two of Messiah on Netflix.
Series star Wil Traval shared the news on Instagram, writing, “It’s a very sad day today. 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.”
According to Variety, Netflix did not feel confident producing a show that required so many international locations given the current state of things with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The series followed CIA officer Eva Geller, who uncovers information about a man gaining international attention through acts of public disruption. As he continues to cultivate followers who allege he’s performing miracles, the global media become increasingly beguiled by this charismatic figure.
The faith based drama was executive produced by husband and wife duo Roma Downey and Mark Burnett.
