Created by Michael Petroni, the Netflix controversial drama about a man claiming to be the Second Coming of Christ debuted to mixed reviews on New Year's Day.

AceShowbiz - Netflix bosses have cancelled controversial drama "Messiah" after just one season.

The show, about a man who claims to be the Second Coming of Christ, debuted on New Year's Day, January 01 to mixed reviews and now series co-star Wil Traval has revealed the programme is dead via Instagram.

"It's a very sad day today," he wrote. "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."

Created by Michael Petroni and produced by "The Bible"'s Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, the drama also featured Tomer Sisley and Michelle Monaghan, who portrayed a tough CIA officer investigating Mehdi Dehbi's character in a bid to expose him as a con artist.

Two days before "Messiah" was set to debut on Netflix, officials at the Royal Film Commission of Jordan requested the drama wasn't shown there. Ironically, "Messiah" was partially shot in the Kingdom.
