How to Watch “Manifest” Season 3
- When: The current (third) season of “Manifest” is available all summer long
- TV: Peacock
- Stream: Watch with a 7-Day Free Trial of Peacock
The show’s first two seasons have been a hit on Netflix, landing a number one spot on the platform. However, the program’s mainstream TV audience has been dropping precipitously since its 2018 debut, quite possibly highlighting the declining viewership of broadcast TV as viewers migrate en masse to the convenience of their preferred streaming outlets.
This has resulted in NBC unceremoniously canceling the show at the cliffhanger conclusion of its third season, despite its streaming success. The development has left fans breathless and wondering if and when they will ever see a proper conclusion to the drama.
Creator Jeff Rake said that he has a six-season arc conceptualized for “Manifest” and is “devastated” by the show’s abrupt cancellation. Rake hopes to find a new home for the program’s planned future seasons and is likely counting on fan support to keep the pressure on.
After landing from a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers of Montego Air Flight 828 discover five years have passed in what seemed like a few hours. 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.
Fans looking on Netflix for season 3 of “Manifest” will come up empty-handed. The third and, at least for now, “final” season of the show is only available on NBC’s Peacock. While some episodes can be watched for free, in order to see the entire season play out you’ll need a subscription to Peacock Premium.
One would assume that NBC would read the tea leaves and simply place the show on Peacock as a program exclusive to the platform. Fans of the program would be happy to look forward to future installments, and it would provide Peacock with the kind of compelling, original content that it is looking to host, especially after its anemic debut offerings and dearth of content in the wake of last year’s postponement of the 2020 Olympic Games.
Peacock is a subscription video streaming service from NBCUniversal that gives access to up to 15,000 hours of content including original shows, blockbuster movies, and classic television series.
Just like other streaming services, Peacock will have their own original series including reboots of Save By The Bell, Punky Brewster, and Battlestar Galactica. They also have shows like Rutherford Falls (Ed Helms), Dr. Death (Alec Baldwin), and a behind-the-scenes docs-series about Saturday Night Live.
The company has acquired the rights to many classic shows like the entire Dick Wolf library including Law & Order and Chicago Fire, Parks and Recreation, and The Office.
The service will also feature blockbusters and critically-acclaimed films from Universal Pictures, Focus Features, DreamWorks Animation, Illumination and content acquired from Hollywood’s biggest studios.
Time will tell if fans of “Manifest” will ever be granted a proper conclusion to their favorite show or will simply be left behind to wonder as the series suffers the same fate as the passengers of Montego Air Flight 828.
