Great news for the fans of the Sci-fi mystery series Manifest, because it is now a Netflix original for its fourth and final season after the cancellation by NBC.
Netflix has also confirmed that the upcoming season will have 20 episodes, which is more than any season of Manifest had, while it was on NBC. How the series will be released has not been confirmed yet because most series with 16 to 20 episodes get released in two parts on Netflix.
Manifest tells the story of a group of passengers from a fictional flight Montego Air 828, who experience severe turbulence while taking the flight from Jamaica to New York City, but when they land, they find out that five and a half years have passed and they have a special ability to the see the glimpses of future events.
Bela Bajaria, the head of globe TV, Netflix said this on the renewal of the series:
“Since its premiere on Netflix in June, Manifest has proven very popular with our members. 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.”
Manifest started its journey on NBC in September 2018 and stayed there for its three-season run, but after that, the network suddenly canceled the series leaving so many unanswered questions, which sent fans of the series to turn to Netflix to save the series and luckily that’s what’s happening.
Rake, the creator of the series said this on the renewal news:
“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.”
The cast for Manifest Season 4 has not been confirmed yet, but until now the series starred Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J. R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, Parveen Kaur, Matt Long, and Holly Taylor.
All three seasons of Manifest are available to stream on Netflix.
