Subscribers are threatening to quit Netflix after the streaming service provider debuted the trailer of an upcoming show titled 'Messiah' on Thursday.
Messiah is the story of a case assigned to a CIA operative, Eve Geller, played by Michelle Monaghan. A Syrian man has grabbed eyeballs and headlines around the world by claiming that he is the promised Messiah. Geller has been tasked by the agency to crack the case and figure out whether the man is a con artist hell-bent on disturbing the status quo or if he really is what he claims to be.

Mehdi Dehbi from 'London is Falling' plays the character of the Messiah. He has plenty of miracles up his sleeves which win him a legion of followers across the globe. However, many Netflix users across the world have voiced their unhappiness over the plot of the show. While some are afraid and think it is indicative of the times to come, others claim that the show 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 based its plot around.
The show debuts on Netflix on January 1, 2020. It has generated a lot of curiosity around the globe ever since its trailer debuted on social media.
