Manifest was cancelled by NBC earlier this week, but the series could still be saved by a streaming service. Netflix is seen as a possibility because of how well the mystery drama has performed since seasons one and two began streaming on the service last week. Manifest has topped Netflix’s Top 10 list since its release.
When the cancellation news was announced, the cast, creator, and the writer’s room staff all took to social media to start a #savemanifest campaign. Deadline has now revealed that Netflix and Warner Bros TV are in talks to save the drama which stars Josh Dallas, Melissa Roxburgh, JR Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, Parveen Kaur, and Matt Long.
The drama follows the survivors of a plane that goes missing for five years and then miraculously returns. Jeff Rake, the creator of the series, has always been clear that he has a six-season plan for the series, and he is hopeful that Netflix will allow him to follow through on that vision. The streaming service has saved another cancelled Warner Bros TV series, Lucifer, so that adds to the hope.
Check out the tweets the cast and creator of the series have been sending out since the cancellation news broke.

What do you think? Would you watch new seasons of Manifest if they landed on Netflix? Are you hoping for a fourth season?
