Manifest Season 4: Renewed or cancelled?

Initially, it was officially announced that the NBC show Manifest was cancelled and wouldn’t be renewed by Netflix. The news about the show’s cancellation brought many enthusiastic fans demanding the fourth season, and the hard work seems to have eventually paid off. 

After the series’ third season aired, Manifest was pretty much done for good after NBC cancelled the series and Netflix decided to drop the show; a new report from Deadline surfaced soon after, giving fans the ultimate hope. According to outlets sources, NBC has started discussing with the show’s studio Warner Bros for the series’ possible renewal for a fourth season.

Commenting on the situation, in a tweet, Jeff Rake, the show’s creator, said: “I’m not giving up. Keep the faith. #SaveManifest.” 

However, in June 2020, Deadline broke the bad news, which shattered the hopes of many fans.

Seemingly, NBC decided not to move forward with the show’s renewal, meaning there will not be a fourth season of the mystery drama, Manifest. After talks about finally having a possible renewal by numerous outlets report, the news was a shocker to many of us. Fans have also expressed their disappointments on many social media platforms after the announcement regarding the show’s cancelation. Some outrage fans tweeted, “Why was Manifest cancelled? @netflix, I’m hoping you save this series!! It has trend #1 on your platform!!. Another fan tweeted, “It’s so ridiculous they actually cancelled Manifest after those cliffhangers. #SaveManifest.”

In response to the fans, the show’s creator Jeff Rake tweeted, “My dear Manifesters, 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 know the fans deserve an ending to your story. Thanks for the love shown to me, cast, and crew. #savemanifest.” 

What Was The Reason Behind The Cancelation Of Manifest Season 4?

There’s no information regarding why NBC decided to cancel the show even though the sci-fi/mystery series was a big hit in the US; until or unless the reps from NBC or Netflix choose to break the silence and speak on that matter, we can’t precisely point out why it went wrong. But most probably, cancelation or renewal decisions are usually ruled out according to the audience performances and ratings. If we look at the show’s ratings and figures, the first season of the series had an audience viewership of 6.5 million and 3.1 million in the third season, respectively. 

Even though the outcome of the talks by NBC and Netflix for the possible renewal of the show ended up in disappointment, Jeff Rake plans to bring out a two-hour movie to bring a satisfying ending to the rest of the Manifest series sixth season.

In June, Rake tweeted, “Your support is awe-inspiring.” Mainly referring to Manifesters (Fans). “We’re trying to find a way to conclude the series. It could take a week, a month, a year. But we’re not giving up. You deserve an end to the story.”

Will Manifest Season 4 Happen?

It looks like the series is getting a season 4 despite the show runners who previously announced that the  series was canceled. After several attempts by fans and starting an online petition, the series is now getting a fourth season and is set to return on August 28, 2022.
