Oh, no! NBC has pulled the plug on Manifest after three seasons. Showrunner Jeff Rake is very disappointed and hopes to find a new home for his show.
Manifest is a series founded by Jeff Rake, sold by NBC with a six-season plan. That plan, as well as the three years that the fans have faithfully followed the events of this series, will fall into the water if the second platform does not interfere and does not save the day.
Season three averaged just over three million viewers a week. Out of the 14 dramas that NBC aired this TV season, it ranked no. 7 in the demo (besting, among others, the renewed New Amsterdam and The Blacklist) and 10th in total audience.
Jeff Rake is devastated but full of hope
“My dear Manifesters, I’m devastated by NBC’s decision to cancel us,” Rake shared late Monday night. “That we’ve been shut down in the middle [of a planned six-season run] 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”
This news is really sad and unhappy, especially when we remember how the third season ends. It ends with the great artistic death of I cliffhanger. Also, the mystery of what happens to that plane that flies through time is still unsolved. All of these things are very intriguing, so we truly hope to be able to watch the show again soon.
Manifest, which premiered in 2018, focuses on the Montego Air Flight 828, which landed safely after a turbulent flight. The crew and passengers were gratefully relieved, but in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends and family mourned them and moved on. As their new reality becomes clearer, a deeper mystery is revealed. Some of the returned passengers soon realize that they could be destined for something much bigger and deeper.
The series is really interesting and brings something different. It’s a shame it was canceled, but we patiently hope to watch it on another platform.
