Word is out that Netflix has cancelled Messiah after its first season. Actor Wil Traval, who plays Will on the show, took to his social media accounts to break the news to his followers.

The thriller premiered on New Years Day with a 10-episode run that ultimately drew little buzz and garnered a mixed reception. With so many originals in its slate, Netflix seems to have a higher performance bar these days that shows must hit in order to secure a renewal.

Messiah follows CIA officer Eva Geller, who begins investigating a charismatic man who is attracting international attention due to his followers believing that he can perform miracles. As she is drawn into the mystery surrounding this newly-emerged figure, it takes her on a global mission to uncover whether he is truly a divine entity or merely a deceptive con artist.
