Netflix thriller 'Messiah' will be your new TV obsession

Netflix thriller 'Messiah' will be your new TV obsession

January can be a pretty bleak month as we swap turkey dinners for a diet of beans on toast - but it also gives us a fantastic excuse to stay in with a stream of new TV to watch.

With that in mind, Netflix is already teasing its January offerings and one series that has piqued our interest is nail-biting thriller Messiah, which is coming to the streaming service on January 1st, 2020.

The high-octane show, which stars Michelle Monaghan as CIA officer Eva Geller, has been dubbed a "provocative and suspenseful thriller that explores the power of influence and belief in the social media age".

The series follows Monaghan's character Geller who uncovers information about a man, played by Mehdi Dehbi, gaining international attention through acts of public disruption.

Growing suspicious, she 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.
