Is it renewed for the Second Season?
Messiah was decent and could have been renewed for the second season if it wasn’t a part of controversies. Soon after its release, the series got a negative response from the Muslim community. It was appealed by the audience not to take the series forward because of the controversial content in the series. Therefore, on March 26, Netflix canceled the series after one season. As of now, there are no new updates of the Messiah, and it is believed to have met the end at such a short span on Netflix. However, that doesn’t mean this would be the end of the series. There is still hope for the show to be picked by Fox or ABC. This has happened a lot of times when the series is put an end by one streaming service and picked and continued by another. So, Messiah fans hang on. You never know what tomorrow has for you.
