Netflix has officially picked up and renewed “Manifest” for Season 4, which will also be its final season. The series was canceled by NBC after Season 3 in June this year.
Netflix also announced the fourth and final season to be its longest season ever with 20 episodes. Fans and the stars of the series, who began the #savemanifest campaign on Twitter are rejoicing with joy and thanking Netflix for this decision.
In the two-hour Season 3 finale, one of the main characters in the series, Grace was killed off. Ben (Josh Dallas) and Grace's son Cal (Jack Messina) returned but have mysteriously aged, and in the last seconds of the finale, Gupta witnessed the entire 828 flight emerge abruptly at Eureka, with its pilot inside, before vanishing just as quickly for a classic cliffhanger finish.
Susan Rovner created Manifest at Warner Bros TV before selling it to NBC and artistically guiding it at the studio until she joined NBCUniversal as programming president last year and made the final decision on the show's future at the broadcast network.

The season 3 finale was low viewership among adults 18-49, series low with 0.4 ratings while the second hour logged a new L+SD viewership low mark (2.6 million). As compared to season 3, the season 2 finale drew solid numbers, earning a 0.8 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic and 4.58 million viewers, with the series averaging a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.7 million viewers after seven days of delayed viewing, according to Nielsen.
The show’s cast includes Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, Parveen Kaur, and Matt Long. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television, Universal Television, Compari Entertainment, and Jeff Rake Production.
Inspired by the mystery of Malaysia Airlines Journey 370, “Manifest” revolves around the crew and passengers of Montego Air Flight 828, who landed safely after a tumultuous but regular flight, and the crew and passengers were relieved. But the world had aged five years in those few hours, and their friends, relatives, and colleagues, having mourned their loss, had given up hope and gone on. They've all been given a second chance after being faced with the impossible. However, as their new realities become obvious, a deeper mystery emerges, and some of the returned passengers realize they may be destined for something greater than they ever imagined.
Below are some of the reactions from the fans.
