Have You Not Understood the Netflix Messiah? (Season 2 Canceled, btw)
There will be no resurrecting the Netflix Messiah for a season 2. The series has been canceled, announced on March 26, 2020 by one of the cast members, Wil Traval, on his Instagram account.
While there has been no official statement from the network as to why, a source told The Hollywood Reporter that the company didn’t feel confident about producing another season of the show, which features an international cast and filmed in several countries, given the current state of the world as it faces the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the show had received a great deal of backlash from some religious groups and just two days before it was released The Royal Film Commission of Jordan requested it not be shown in the predominantly Muslim country.
But, have the series' viewers fully understood what was presented in Series 1? Join me as I attempt to discern the message that Al-Masih, the Netflix Messiah, was really trying to deliver.
