NBC has declined to renew the missing plane thriller Manifest for a fourth season.
The series has been #1 on Netflix in the U.S. for the past three days.
On Tuesday, the cast’s options were set to expire, and NBC decided to cancel just hours before.
With NBC’s refusal to produce Season 4, series creator and screenwriter Jeff Rake promised to look for a new home for ‘Manifest’.
My dear Manifesters,— Jeff Rake (@jeff_rake) June 15, 2021
I’m devastated by NBC’s decision to cancel us. That we’ve been shut down in the middle is a gut punch to say the least. Hoping to find a new home. You the fans deserve an ending to your story. Thanks for the love shown to me, cast, and crew. #savemanifest
The season (or series) finale left many questions open. This should incite a massive fan battle, probably with Netflix, to rescue the series.
Just as Netflix saved ‘Lucifer’, it might be a good decision for the platform to rescue the series, which has a solid fan base.
‘Manifest’ Season 3 Ratings are very good
The series was conceived by Jeff Rake and was sold to NBC with a six-season plan that has been mapped out.
Produced by Warner Bros. Television and Universal Television, the TV show stars Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, and Athena Karkanis.
J.R. Ramirez. Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, Parveen Kaur, Matt Long, and Holly Taylor complete the cast.
The third season of Manifest averaged a 0.47 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.07 million viewers in the live+same day ratings. Compared to season two, that’s down by 31% in the demo and down by 21% in viewership. The finale aired last week.
The first to report the news of the cancellation was Deadline Hollywood.
