Manifest, an American series of supernatural drama television shows, is trying to launch the fourth episode in the unlikely event that the ongoing negotiations between Netflix and NBC about “saving the canceled NBC drama” prove fruitful. Deadline reports that Manifest’s producers are desperately in need of a deal to sign with cast members whose contracts ended in June. This news comes months following a cliffhanger ending to season 3. Despite the popularity of the series streaming on Netflix and its first two seasons rising to number one in Nielsen ratings, the series was canceled in June 2021.
Manifest Season 4 On The Cards Amid Negotiations?
This isn’t Netflix’s first attempt at this. Three years ago, the streaming giant renewed Fox’s Lucifer (also a WBTV production) for a fourth and fifth season. Netflix will have to find a home for Manifest, which is a problem since Lucifer already had worldwide rights and worldwide rights.
Manifest also claimed the top spot on Netflix’s popularity poll for nearly a year. Since then, talks about a possible NBC/Nickel save have been going on. Netflix has taken on the sole responsibility of saving NBC.
Creator Jeff Rake Devastated As The Series Grounded
The creator Jeff Rake expressed his shock at NBC’s decision that the show was canceled. “NBC’s decision [to cancel us ….is a shocker to me.] It’s a complete gut punch. Looking forward to finding a new home. Your fans deserve an ending.”
He stated that they were trying again to bring back Manifest seasons 4 and that it could take weeks, months, or even a full year to accomplish this. He continued, “But…we’re not giving in.”
The show is about the passengers and crew on a commercial airliner, who suddenly appear after being missing for more than five seasons. It stars Melissa Roxburgh with Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis. Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, and Holly Taylor.
