Messiah Season 2: The Plot

The plot of the story revolves around the fictional storyline which portrays the concept of what if Jesus returns. Messiah, as the name suggests, is considered the guardian of people and followers. The lead character of the series is portrayed as an incarnation of God who sparks an element of trust and faith in his followers by showing his miraculous powers.

The series focuses on the reaction of the modern world to a divine man from the Middle East. It is apparent in the series that a CIA carries on the investigation of a divine figure who is assumed to have some divine powers. His followers believe in his miracles and claim him to be the return of Isa (Jesus).

The show starts with the yellow-clad preacher who leads his followers but later on gets arrested by the Isreal Police. Jailed Al-Masih is interrogated by the police officer, Dahan who refuses to reveal his identity to Masih but Dahan was soon left dumbstruck when Al-Masih spelled his name and identity.

With Al Masih’s escape from the sight, the Israeli Police starts a further investigation with the help of the CIA. Following this, Al- Masih gets gun-fired by the authorities in a city plaza in Jerusalem, which accidentally hits a boy but the boy rises with the miraculous powers of Al-Masih. Meanwhile, Al-Masih gets abducted by Dahan and The White House decides to leak Al-Masih’s real name to the press which disappointed the followers of Al-Masih.

Undoubtedly, the series focuses on finding the truth behind the hidden identity of Al-Masih, who claims to be an incarnation of God. Eva Geller shows a fair deal of suspicion and starts the investigation to determine the truth. Throughout the show, Al-Masih survives an arrest, a would-be plane crash in which Al-Masih and Dahan were claimed to rise from dead as narrated by a shepherd near the crash site.

Messiah Season 2: Crew and Other Updates

The trailer of the Messiah series was out last year and the airing of the show on Netflix went live in January 2020. With a running time of 38-55 minutes, the show is produced by Michael Petroni, Mark Burnett, Andrew Deane, Brandon Guercio, and David Nicksay. Season one of the series consisted of ten episodes with the lead stars like Mehdi Dehbi, Tomer Sisley, Michelle Monaghan, John Ortiz, and Wil Travel.

Despite being a narrative of the miraculous and extraordinary powers of God’s messenger, the show received a mix of appreciation as well as criticism from the Muslim community. In 2019, The Royal Film Commission of Jordan had urged Netflix to disallow the streaming of the series as it was found to be hurtful to the religious sentiments of the Muslims.

The unique plotline of the show created a lot of buzz but ended with the dismay of its huge fan base. The untimely demise of the show by Netflix has left the audience with an option to just wait for the good things to happen.
