Unfortunately, there is no season 2 for Messiah. The actor Wil Travail who plays Will Mathers confirmed this news via his Instagram handle.
He wrote, “It’s a very sad day today. I have just received news from Netflix that there will be no season 2 of Messiah”.
Makers are sad too. They said they planned the second season when they were filming the first season. They had the Storyline and plot of the second season in their mind. They were hoping to get a second season but sadly they won’t have it. The audience who liked it got a little disappointed with Netflix’s decision. But we have to accept it anyhow.

Why Netflix Cancelled The Show?
The show is canceled on 26 March 2020 by Netflix because a huge amount of audience had the problem with its narratives and said that series contains some anti-Islamic sentiment. They said Al-Masih is the name for anti-messiah who is not Messiah but an evil person. Messiah now facing the charges against series for its controversial narratives.
Netflix addressed it’s audience regarding Messiah controversies and gave a statement that “Messiah is a work of fiction. It’s not based on any one’s character, figure, or religion. All Netflix shows feature ratings and information to help members make their own decisions about what’s right for them and their families”.
