Netflix have cancelled Messiah after one season.

Wil Traval, who played Will Mathers in the series, and Michelle Monaghan, who played Eva Geller, confirmed the news on their respective Instagram accounts.

Monaghan said that it was with "a heavy heart" that she was sharing that they wouldn't be back for a second season.

"I have so much gratitude to everyone who tuned in, supported and whose global perspectives were broadened from watching our show. To have worked with such a dedicated, talented, kind cast and crew, to have traveled to some of the most beautiful and sacred places in the world and to have met people near and far, was a once in a lifetime experience," she said.

"Thank you to our creator Michael Petroni, @netflix and to the rest of our Messiah team."

Messiah followed CIA officer Eva Geller who, after uncovering information about a man (Mehdi Dehbi) gaining international attention through acts of public disruption, begins an investigation into his origins.

As he continues to cultivate followers who allege he's performing miracles, the global media become increasingly beguiled by this charismatic figure. Geller must race to unravel the mystery of whether he really is a divine entity or a deceptive con artist capable of dismantling the world’s geopolitical order.

As the story unfolds, multiple perspectives are interwoven including that of an Israeli intelligence officer (Tomer Sisley), a Texas preacher (John Ortiz) and his daughter (Stefania LaVie Owen), a Palestinian refugee (Sayyid El Alami) and the journalist (Jane Adams) who covers the story.

The series - which debuted back in January - also starred Melinda Page Hamilton, Wil Traval, Fares Landoulsi, Dermot Mulroney and Beau Bridges.
