‘Manifest’ Nears Netflix Revival; Cast & Writer Negotiations For 4th Season Underway
Manifest fans have been through a whirlwind of emotions as NBC unexpectedly canceled the series after its third season finale. It seemed like the show was doomed after no one else would pick it up, but then, it looked as if the series had a chance at surviving. After a couple of months of back and forth, the show seems to be getting closer to its fourth season on Netflix.
Sources have told Deadline that Warner Bros. TV and Netflix are nearing the end of their negotiations about the fourth season. According to sources, NBC and Peacock are no longer involved in negotiations.
Netflix is a subscription video streaming service that includes on-demand access to 3,000+ movies, 2,000+ TV Shows, and Netflix Originals like Stranger Things, Squid Game, The Crown, Tiger King, and Bridgerton. They are constantly adding new shows and movies. Some of their Academy Award-winning exclusives include Roma, Marriage Story, Mank, and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.
Netflix offers three plans — on 1 device in SD with their “Basic” ($8.99) plan, on 2 devices in HD with their “Standard” ($13.99) plan, and 4 devices in up to 4K on their “Premium” ($17.99) plan.
Netflix spends more money on content than any other streaming service meaning that you get more value for the monthly fee.
The sources said that Warner Bros. TV is also in negotiations with the cast and is making “if-come” offers to writers. Some of the writers are new and others have been a part of Manifest in the past. This is a good sign that negotiations are going well and that Warner Bros. TV expects the series to be revived.
For now, there are few details about Manifest’s resurrection on Netflix, but this is all good news for the show’s fans.
In response to the cancelation, fans took to social media using the hashtag #SaveManifest in hopes of bringing the show back to complete its planned six-season run. Viewers also streamed the show on Netflix, hoping to keep it in the number one spot on the streaming service.
Though NBC canceled Manifest and cited low viewership, it appears to have a very loyal fanbase. Viewers are willing to do anything to get the missing answers about Montego Air Flight 828.
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.
