Messiah Season 2: Why Netflix Has Cancelled the Show? What Is The Reason Behind It? All Updates Here That You Want To Know!

Netflix has opted to cancel Messiah’s production after season one due to its religious controversies. The CIA thriller stars Michelle Monaghan as Agent Eva Geller, who is faced with investigating a mysterious man popularly known as Al-Masih. Al-Masil (Mehdi Dehbi ) proclaimed he was sent to earth by higher powers to save mankind. These plots to control mankind began to draw international organizations’ interest when his followers began to cause chaos as a result of their belief. Agent Eva is then faced with the task of discovering if he is as divine as he says or just another con artist trying to gain the attention of the world.

Messiah Season 2 Cancelled: What are the reasons behind cancelling it?

The news of this production’s cancellation was made public by a cast Wil Traval who revealed on his Instagram handle.

This is an indication that Messiah was not concluded in the first season; neither was its production held back but was canceled. It features an international cast and shot in multiple locations around the world. Aside from the religious controversies associated with the cancellation, the film’s multi-location setting would be very challenging and almost impossible to pull off due to this pandemic. The Messiah trailer faced a lot of negative reactions over the character Al-Masih. 

The name Al-Masih is closely connected to Al-Masih ad-Dajjal, an evil figure in Islamic eschatology. He was known as a false Messiah, a liar, and a deceiver. This point alone made this movie seem like a direct target towards Islam. Although the Netflix representative, in her speech to the press, claimed Messiah was and still is totally born out of imagination and creativity, this proof makes it a little hard to believe. This name caused a lot of negative reactions, which prompted a petition for a name change with over 4,000 signatures in agreement. The request by the Royal film commission of Jordan to not air the movie in Muslim countries two days before debut only increased the uproar of many religious bodies.

However, this movie production’s cancellation is indeed very heartbreaking to fans who were anxiously anticipating a next season bomb. There have been some petitions going on due to this news on Twitter and we are hoping for positive returns.
