Messiah has been cancelled by Netflix

Posted Filed under

One season of the religious thriller series was enough for the world’s number one streaming service…

Messiah has been cancelled at Netflix in another case of “one and done” at the streaming giant. The news was revealed by cast member Wil Traval on his personal Instagram account.

“It’s a very sad day today,” Traval posted. “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.”

Michael Petroni’s series followed the appearance of a man who appears to be the second coming, and so is closely monitored by the CIA to see if his supernatural powers are part of a larger con.

Messiah suffered heavily upon its Netflix debut after its big twist was spoiled online, and it did not appear to fare well on the service.

Stars Tomer Sisley, Michelle Monaghan, John Ortiz, Melinda Page Hamilton, Stefania LaVie Owen, Jane Adams, Sayyid El Alami and Fares Landoulsi will now be pursuing other projects.

So far in 2020, Netflix has also cancelled AJ And The Queen, Spinning Out, Soundtrack, Marianne, Mortel and Osmosis after releasing just a single season of each.

More if we get it.
