“All things work together for good” is a statement often quoted by characters from the canceled NBC series, Manifest. This has proven itself to be true after Netflix saved the canceled series. Netflix, ironically announcing on August 28 that the series will be back for its fourth and final season. If you’re a fan of Manifest, you’d recognize the significance of the announcement occurring on 8.28.
It was reported that the NBC series, which first aired back in September 2018, would be canceled after the air of season 3. The announcement came from the network back in May 2021. Shortly after that, Netflix picked up the series and began to steam the series starting June of this year. As viewership began to rise, a campaign was created to save the canceled series titled #SaveManifest. Luckily for fans, the campaign was widely acknowledged by Netflix, as the streaming service is moving forward with a fourth and final season.
Creator of the series Jeff Rake had this to say, “What started years ago as a flight of fancy deep in my imagination has evolved into the jet engine journey of a lifetime. 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.”
Manifest is described as,
When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. But in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years — and after mourning their loss, their friends, families, and colleagues had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds, and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible.
Thanks to this save, fans everywhere will be able to have closure as the series ends. The last season will be 20 episodes long, longer than any of the three previous seasons. This will provide fans with a condensed view of what the creator initially had in mind. The details about when the series will begin production are not yet available.
