After a whirlwind third season for the NBC drama Manifest, its most loyal fans are worried and wondering about the fate of Manifest season 4 and if it could happen on Netflix.
The series follows the chilling events surrounding a plane that’s gone missing for over five years, though for its passengers, it’s as though no time has passed at all. For three seasons, Manifest has weaved a tangled web of mysteries and captivating stories about its characters.
Manifest stars Josh Dallas, Melissa Roxburgh, Athena Karkanis, J. R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, Parveen Kaur, Matt Long and Holly Taylor and has amassed a loyal fandom of viewers hanging on to every turbulent twist and turn.
But will Manifest season 4 happen on NBC or Netflix? Has the series been renewed or canceled? Since the series started streaming on Netflix, we’re more curious than ever about the fate of Flight 828. Here’s what we know so far about Manifest’s next season.
Has Manifest been renewed?
As of the season 3 finale of Manifest on June 10, NBC has not announced a renewal for the supernatural sci-fi drama series. Although the network has handed out renewals and cancellations for a number of its shows, a handful of favorites (like Good Girls) have been left to wait.
Is there going to be a season 4 of Manifest?
Currently, Manifest season 4 is not off the table. Even though ratings have declined since its breakout first season, the thrilling drama remains a fan-favorite for the network and could prove itself a viable player on streaming should new fans hop aboard.
Manifest also seems to have the support of its distributor, Warner Bros. TV, as chairman Channing Dungey said they hope the series will continue on NBC. Also a bonus for Manifest, the series boasts the highest ratings among NBC’s bubble shows, in spite of its year-to-year decrease.
Will Manifest season 4 happen on Netflix?
Of course, one of the biggest questions from fans surrounding the future of the series is where it could land if not at NBC. While Peacock grabbed struggling NBC comedy A.P. Bio prior to its launch, the newbie streamer has yet to dabble in saving series that have been outright canceled.
Since Manifest began streaming its first two seasons on Netflix ahead of the season 3 finale, the likelihood that the streaming giant could swoop in to rescue the missing-plane mystery series looks better than ever. The series has already cracked the top 5 on Netflix, and if enough fans rally behind Manifest, season 4 could happen on the streamer.
However, there are currently no plans for Netflix to pickup the series. It’s also important to recognize that it’s been a few years since Netflix saved a series and has focused more on developing its own brand of original content. A number of fallen fan-favorites are clamoring for saving from Netflix, like fellow NBC cast-off Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. It’s unlikely that the streaming service would throw a line to more than one show.
Manifest season 4 release date
Whether Manifest season 4 happens on Netflix or returns to its home on NBC, don’t expect the new season to premiere in 2021. The third season finished its run in June 2021, allotting for a hiatus between the potential next season.
Since its second season bowed in January, Manifest has become a midseason pinch hitter, with season 3 debuting in April. Should the series stick the landing for a fourth season, anticipate the new episodes to begin unraveling more mysteries by spring 2022.
