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?
Please save Manifest! NBC must be nuts dumping Manifest, when they have other shows with very lower ratings, like Good Girls. Netflix, please pick up Manifest and please don’t screw with the formula, it’s really good the way it is. Thank!
Please bring back Manifest. It was the only show of its kind on tv. I hope Netflex will pick it up snd keep it suitable for the entire family to watch.
I would love for Manifest to continue. Great show. But I thought that about Designated Survivor, too, and when Netflix picked it up they ruined it with f-bombs and sex scenes. If they left Manifest so that you could still watch it with most of your family, that would be amazing.
I watch this show on a Romanian channel named FilmNow and all two seasons seen until now is amazing, I hope that the series not will be cancelled!
Please save Manifest!
If you want to see season 3 it’s on peacock and Hulu… I love the show
I was a Manifest fan from day one. I never missed an episode and because I miss it so much I started watching it again from day one on Netflix. I love it even more now watching it a second time. Please do not cancel this show.
Please bring back season 4 on Netflix. If they aren’t going to bring it to NBC they should bring it on Netflix. I’ll watch it on Netflix for sure it’s my favorite show for sure.
Who are the Negative Nellies who keep down voting for this show to be renewed. If you don’t like the show go elsewhere and let us who do cheer for this show. Your behavior is very yucky!
If Netflix does take the show I will definitely get the streaming service!!
