Netflix has a large number of viewers across the globe that is why we can see so much diversity in its content. In this topic, we will be talking about the Messiah Season 2. After the release of the first season, the trailer has been controversial, and Netflix has to cancel its second season.
But what was the actual reason behind it? As we all know, Messiah was released on January 1, 2020, and before its release, it became a sensation since many people considered it to be a super hit show.
On the other hand, it has raised many questions as a huge debate started after this show was aired last year. The backlash and negative response became the reason behind its cancellation.
Despite having an international cast and high-profile names, it was a complete disaster, but many people still don’t know the reason behind the negative responses and backlash.
Messiah Season 2 Release Date
Based on The Hollywood Reporter, the company did not feel confident about releasing another show season. Although, given the current state of the world, it still managed to feature international casts and is filmed in several countries. At this moment, it should be released on December 21, 2021; however, it was cancelled, and it is awaiting a response if it will show on the big screen.
What is Messiah Season 2 All About
With just 10 episodes, the first season ended with a cliffhanger. The show starts with a preacher in Damascus who provides that defeat of ISIS. After the loss, this preacher led hundreds of his followers straight to the Israel Bada. He was captured and jailed by the Israeli police. Upon his first investigation by the security agency of Israel, the preacher introduced himself as Al-Masih. He said that he is delivering a message from his father by revealing those things which the agent should only know. The next day, he escapes from the Israel jail and ends up in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, where he provides the end of this world.
Later, this man ends up in Texas, USA, and saves the daughter of a local pastor. This incident was filmed and became widely viral on social media. After that, the authorities have been concerned with the popularity and agenda, which people think is the second coming of Christ.
On the other hand, this person is being chased by a CIA Agent, Eve Geller, who wants to find the truth behind this story. Soon, he was captured by the American authorities and finally had Eva’s chance to interrogate this person. While their session was ongoing, she was shocked as this man revealed all her past accidents and trauma, knowing they had met for the first time. He is released and becomes even famous after walking on water in Washington.
The show has to introduce us to the lines among faith, religion, and politics. Although the storyline deals with unanswered questions, we are still waiting for the release to happen in the future.
