Thanks to the #SaveManifest movement on social media, Manifest might not be gone forever after all.
Since Manifest was canceled on NBC earlier this summer ahead of season 4, hardcore fans of the show have been doing all they can to get the network to reconsider and/or convince Netflix to pick up the series. Apart from tweeting endlessly with the hashtag #SaveManifest and signing petitions, some fans flocked to Netflix to rewatch the series to show how much they care. These fans, combined with growing intrigue around the plane drama, resulted in Manifest claiming the number-one spot on Netflix's list of most-watched shows for weeks.
Seeing the popularity of Manifest on Netflix, Deadline reported in July that Netflix and NBC are now back to having "conversations" with Manifest's studio Warner Bros TV about how to perhaps resurrect the series for a fourth season. Thrilled to hear this latest development, Melissa tweeted out a link from The Hollywood Reporter announcing the big news and fans went ballistic in the best way.
"I have been waiting for this#SaveManifest," one fan tweeted in reply. " ITS GONNA HAPPEN SOON! I KNOW IT #savemanifest #ManifestersNeverLose," another exclaimed. "Yesss We are beyond ready to see you all back on our screen!," a different fan added.
To be crystal clear, it's not 100% confirmed that Manifest is coming back. All we know for now is that, according to Deadline, both NBC and Netflix are weighing their options when it comes to a fourth season. Of course, we'll let you know as soon as possible if there are more exciting developments to share.
In the meantime, all we can do is follow the lead of Manifest showrunner Jeff Rake. On July 14, Jeff tweeted out to fans: "I’m not giving up. Keep the faith. #SaveManifest."
Keep the faith, indeed!
