Of the spate of Netflix’s first series that have made their way to the stage recently, few can claim to boast a premise as fascinating as Messiah, in which a CIA officer played by Michelle Monaghan investigates a modern-day Christ-like figure — intending to decode if he is credible or a con-man.
If you are among these have binged the opening season and to have been taken in by that premise that is tantalizing, you may be asking yourself when and if you can expect to see more. Here’s what we know so far…
When is Messiah season 2 on Netflix?
We’ve got no confirmation on whether or not a second season will be ordered by Netflix, as things stand. However, this is not necessarily causing to fret — it is common practice for the service to wait around a month to declare renewals, so expect more news.
It would be inclined to air at some point in 2021 — possibly a summer or autumn date, if there was a year, confirmed, then dependent on the production schedule for period one. Of course, should any more conclusive information come our way, we will post it right here.
What happened in Messiah season 1?
As mentioned above, the central conceit of the opening show was the event of Al-Masih (who also goes by the name Payam Golshiri) a mysterious figure who claims to be the second coming of Christ.
Unsurprisingly given the show’s modern-day setting, there is a fair deal of suspicion about if Al-Masih is that he says he’s — and so CIA representative Eva Geller begins an investigation to determine if he is Christ or a conman, perhaps even the embodiment of the Antichrist.
Throughout the time we see Al-Masih miraculously survive a plane crash that is would-be-deadly and seemingly reestablish his passenger Aviram Dahan, then watch one of the disciples escape death following a suicide bombing.
The first season didn’t quite offer any conclusive information as to the exact character of Al Masih — and it is still just as likely that he is great as he is wicked — but we do know for sure that he has of supernatural powers.
We also know he has some type of connection with Oscar Wallace, a cyber-terrorist and Williams College professor, which he has put great trust in a woman named Rebecca — that creates a message that”Al-Masih is the eye…the eye of this storm”
What might happen in Messiah season 2?
At this phase, it’s anybody’s guess — but in the very least we can expect a potential second season to continue to learn more about the chance of Al-Masih being the next coming or even a malevolent being… and maybe even supplying an answer one way or the other!
Who is in the cast of Messiah season 2?
We can expect nearly all the year one cast to reprise their roles in case of a second season — so we should see more of Michelle Monaghan (True Detective), Mehdi Dehbi (London Has Got ), Tomer Sisley (We are the Millers) and John Ortiz (Fast and Furious).
