‘Messiah’ tells the story of a man who emerges in Syria and grabs eyeballs across the globe.
He claims to be the messiah–the son of God–and has plenty of miracles up his sleeve to back his claims.
Played by ‘London is falling’ actor Mehdi Dehbi, the messiah is investigated by a CIA agent played by Michelle Monaghan, named Eve Geller.
Geller must find out whether there is any truth to the man’s claims, who is gaining a legion of followers around the globe, or whether he’s just a con artist who has an ulterior agenda.
While some are afraid and think the show is indicative of the times to come, others claim that ‘Messiah’ is outright disrespectful towards their religious beliefs.
Islam, Christianity and other religions across the world have predicted the arrival of the Antichrist, something the show seems to have caught on and base its plot around.
The show to debut on Netflix on January 1, 2020.
It has generated a lot of curiosity around the globe ever since its trailer surfaced on social media.
The show has created by Michael Petroni (The Book Thief) and directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta).
