But it seems A LOT of people aren’t happy with the show’s premise.
There are two main reasons for the backlash – with some fans thinking it is either too real by predicting what is to come in the future, while others are slamming it for being “disrespectful”.
One Twitter user commented: “Who is with me in vowing to cancel our subscriptions and never watch Netflix again if they allow this Messiah show to drop?”
Whilst another fan tweeted: “@MessiahNetflix pull the series or I’ll get all my subs to cancel your subscription. Do the right thing. You can DM me to consult on the series to incorporate proper research. Thanks.”
