Biblical stories, the idea of doomsday, the genesis and how we originate, and the idea of how Jesus is a messenger, blended with the relatable fictional aspect, are what help people educate and learn about religion more closely.

Speculations around the show:
Once the show started shooting officially, there were many videos that came about the filming process and how, because it is a crowd funded show, they have even leased out the space, which they use as the set, now for other people to use it as well, which was not the case before.
There are a lot of speculations around Lionsgate acquiring the show, to which the maker said that the show is very good and has chances to be scaled at a global level. Therefore, Lionsgate is the perfect tool for them as they have the strength and experience in the areas where the direction can be lacking. But they have also respected the idea and the identity of the show to curtail the uniqueness and have ensured they will protect that.
When speaking to the Lionsgate president, he also hinted that the more he started to understand the show, the more he was intrigued and interested that it comes to the best platform, and theirs was the one because of the viewership it offers. The opportunity provided here would elevate this incredible intellectual property.
So that it acquires worldwide recognition and popularity. Today it has 110 million viewers from 175 countries. The plan is to make the show in 600 languages, as this comes from a nonprofit sector. It needs to expand to everyone. So yes, the show will be coming out officially by Lionsgate, which means the budget is higher. There can be a newer cast included, and it can have a greater camera presence as well.
