Netflix Revives Manifest for Fourth and Final Season After NBC Cancellation

PEOPLE 29 August, 2021 - 08:21am

After being cancelled by NBC earlier this year, missing plane drama Manifest will live another day at Netflix, where many viewers initially discovered the series. The news that the show’s fourth and final season was heading to Netflix was announced by the streamer on August 28. As fans know, the date was a reference to the show’s Flight 828, which disappeared for more than five years. Only hours passed for the show’s 191 passengers, who found themselves caught up in a twisted supernatural conspiracy as they attempted to reclaim their lives. 

“Couldn't let a day as significant as today go uncelebrated,” the official Netflix account tweeted at 8:28 AM PST. “Manifest will officially return for a super-sized fourth and final season, only on Netflix!”

According to Deadline, stars Josh Dallas and Melissa Roxburgh are already set to return for the 20-episode season, which will be broken up into at least two parts. Of the good news, Dallas tweeted, “it’s all connected!!!”

Fans, many of whom engaged with the show’s #SaveManifest campaign, also expressed their excitement over the news on Twitter.

“Thank you @Netflix for giving us one more season of #Manifest,” one wrote. “I can't wait to see it!!”

Another added, “THANK YOU @netflix for picking up @NBCManifest!!! A fourth season is what we all need after that ending.”

Manifest’s renewal has been a long time coming. In June, creator Jeff Rake expressed his gratitude towards fans as he hoped to give them closure on the series.

“Manifesters! Your support is awe-inspiring. We’re trying to find a way to conclude the series. Could take a week, a month, a year. But we’re not giving up. You deserve an end to the story,” he tweeted at the time. “Keep the conversation alive. If it works out, it’s because of YOU.”

Netflix Picks Up NBC-Cancelled “Manifest” for 20 New Episodes and a Resolution of Cliffhanger

Showbiz411 29 August, 2021 - 08:21am

Where is flight 828? On Netflix! The deal is done. “Manifest” will have a fourth season on the streaming platform. The cliffhanger will be resolved. NBC looks pretty lame for cancelling the show in the first place.

I’m proud to say this column had the original scoop that “Manifest” was not dead and would return in some form. What a mess! NBC cancelled “Manifest” because Dick Wolf promised them another hour of “Law & Order” branded TV. Then Wolf forgot to develop a show. By that time, “Manifest” was already a hit n Netflix. And that’s where the deal was made.

Manifest: Season Four; Netflix Saves Cancelled NBC Series For Final Season

TV Series Finale 28 August, 2021 - 04:44pm

Fans of the Manifest TV series are going to get some answers. Netflix has revived the cancelled series for a fourth and final season. It’s worth noting that the show was saved on August 28th since the show revolves around passengers of Flight 828.

An action-drama series, the Manifest TV show stars Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, Parveen Kaur, Matt Long, and Holly Taylor. After a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers of Flight 828 disembarked to find the world had aged more than five years. Their friends, families, and colleagues had given up hope of ever seeing them again. In season three, faced with the impossible, the passengers’ dreams of a second chance at life evaporated as they encountered imminent dangers surrounding them, both tangible and unexplained.

Manifest ran on NBC for three seasons and drew middling to low ratings. The peacock network pulled the plug in June and Warner Bros. TV tried to find the series a new home but those efforts were fruitless. The show’s fans refused to give up however and Manifest became a top performer for Netflix. The numbers were so good that the streamer decided to give the series another look, despite the fact that the cast’s contracts had all expired (a common roadblock when trying to revive a series).

Today, the streamer officially ordered a fourth and final season of 20 episodes. That will be the series’ largest season episode order to date but it’s unknown if Netflix will release season four in two or more parts.

According to Deadline, Dallas, Roxburgh, and Ramirez have closed deals for the final season while Kaur, Blaise, Messina, and Long are believed to be in negotiations. Long is a series regular on NBC’s drama pilot Getaway but, should that show get a series order, it’s understood that he could still return for more of Manifest.

“Since its premiere on Netflix in June, Manifest has proven very popular with our members. [Series creator] Jeff Rake and his team have crafted a beguiling mystery that has viewers around the world on the edge of their seats and believing again in second chances, and we’re thrilled that they will bring fans some closure with this final super-sized season,” said Bela Bajaria, head of globe TV, Netflix.

Rake wrote, “What started years ago as a flight of fancy deep in my imagination has evolved into the jet engine journey of a lifetime. Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisioned the worldwide outpouring of love and support for this story, its characters, and the team who work so hard to bring it all to life. That we will be able to reward the fans with the ending they deserve moves me to no end. On behalf of the cast, the crew, the writers, directors, and producers, thank you to Netflix, to Warner Bros., and of course to the fans. You did this.”

Couldn't let a day as significant as today go uncelebrated.
