Manifesto can be resurrected for a fourth season

Just over a month after NBC canceled Manifesto and Netflix revived the show, a fourth season may be underway.

The series, starring Melissa Roxburgh and Josh Dallas, was canceled on June 14, just four days after the season 3 finale aired, and Netflix revived the show just a week later.

Now, the roles have seemingly turned in Manifest’s favor, with both NBC AND Netflix both in talks with Manifest producer Warner Bros. television, via Deadline.

NBC’s renewed interest in the show comes as fans launched a #SaveManifest campaign on social media, as well as the network faced a sudden shortfall in their lineup.

The network’s planned season 5 renewal of their hit drama series Good Girls was canceled at the last minute due to cast issues, with the network officially revealing on June 25 that the show will not be back.

Their planned Law & Order spin-off Law & Order: For the Defense was also pulled from the fall schedule last week, with the show not progressing at all.

With these two new holes in their schedules (and funds cleared in their budgets), NBC is believed to have reinstated the renewal talks.

Of the network’s four “bubble” shows — along with Good Girls, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, and Debris, all of which were canceled — Manifest had by far the highest ratings, especially in total viewership.

At the same time, the viewership of the first two seasons on Netflix has skyrocketed, with the show topping the streaming service’s daily top 10 for a month, while also topping the Nielsen streaming ratings.

Still, nothing is official yet and complications could arise for Netflix, which typically acquires worldwide rights to their shows, and Manifest has already sold internationally, market by market.

It’s worth noting that Warner Bros. TV has managed to avoid these issues to bring Lucifer back to life on Fox’s Netflix, so it’s said there’s a ‘path’ to a deal.

Manifesto was created by Jeff Rake (The Mysteries of Laura), after a five-year missing plane that suddenly returns with all passengers intact.

Rake has said he has a six-year plan for the show, which was cut short when NBC canceled the show midway through.

The creator has been keeping fans up to date with cryptic updates, the latest of which indicated that the fan-led #SaveManifest would be directly responsible for a fourth season.

Rake tweeted: “I’m not giving up. Keep faith #SaveManifest’ on July 14 and on Tuesday, when the first reports of Manifest’s return surfaced, he said: ‘A lot of speculation. No comment. Unlike, when the impossible happens and the dead rise again, it’s because of YOU. #SaveManifest’
