Netflix has confirmed that they are working with Warner Brothers TV to create a fourth season for “Manifest” – the hit sci-fi show that originally aired on NBC. The series tells the story of a plane that mysteriously lands five years after take-off with the passengers having to adjust to their new lives after being missing for all that time. The show launched on NBC in America in 2018 and ran for 3 seasons before being cancelled – NBC chose not to renew it, even for their Peacock streaming service. Since the show was added to Netflix in the US and Canada back in June this year it has been a regular in the Top 10 lists and season 3 was added earlier this week to Netflix in America. The new series will be the final series and will consist of 20 episodes – likely to be split into two parts.
One big question on people’s minds is “will it be another Lucifer?” By that we mean will the new season be on Netflix but not the original 3? As confirmed by our friends over at What’s On Netflix, the global rights for the original 3 seasons have also gone to Netflix. So once any licenses with current streaming services expire it will head to Netflix globally. In the UK the show is currently available on Sky’s NOW streaming service until November 7th where after it will likely ‘land’ straight on Netflix UK.
Couldn't let a day as significant as today go uncelebrated.
