Netflix has axed its provocative drama Messiah. 

Series star Wil Traval revealed the news that the streaming giant has opted not to renew the series on Instagram Thursday.

“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.”

The series followed a CIA officer Eva Geller (Michelle Monaghan) investigates a man — referred to by some as Al-Masih (Mehdi Dehbi) — attracting international attention and followers through acts of public disruption. Messiah also starred Tomer Sisley, John Ortiz, Stefania LaVie Owen, Sayyid El Alami, Jane Adams, Melinda Page Hamilton, Traval, Fares Landoulsi, Dermot Mulroney, and Beau Bridges.
