“Messiah” has been canceled at Netflix after one season.
The series, starring Mehdi Dehbi, followed a CIA officer who investigates a charismatic figure whose followers believe he can perform miracles; he may be a divine entity or a dangerous con artist.
Wil Traval, who co-starred on the series, announced the news via Instagram and noted that he is devastated by the news.
It’s a very sad day today. 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. #noseasontwo #messiahnetflix #cancelled #devestated #tellthemno #netflix

According to Deadline, the show’s demise may have been triggered by the Coronavirus.
According to sources, Messiah, which features a large international cast and is filmed in multiple locations around the world, is the type of production that would be extremely difficult to pull off any time soon as most of the world continues to be gripped by the global coronavirus pandemic.
I’m most disappointed that I will never get an answer to the season one cliffhanger!
