Manifest will not return after Netflix passes on revival
The news is sure to come as a major blow to fans who will now never see a resolution to its central mystery.
Sci-fi drama Manifest has officially been cancelled after Netflix passed on picking it up for a fourth season.
It was first dropped by US network NBC earlier this month due to falling ratings, but its production team had been in discussions with the streaming giant about a possible revival.
Now Netflix has announced that they’ve declined this offer due to the amount of digital rights they’d have to navigate and some cast options having expired.
The platform has previously swooped in to save several other popular shows from cancellation like supernatural crime drama Lucifer.
Created by Jeff Rake, Manifest follows the passengers and crew of Montego Air Flight 828 who upon landing in New York discover that they’ve been missing for five years.
As they attempt to resume their lives and reconnect with loved ones, they begin to hear strange voices and experience visions which predict the future.
Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, Parveen Kaur, Matt Long and Holly Taylor all star.
Several cast and crew members took to social media to say their goodbye to fans and thank them for their dedication.

Thank YOU, our fans. You became the Manifesters at Comic-Con 2018. Ever since, you’ve watched religiously, parsed every word, cried a lot, laughed a little, puzzle-solved, and never, ever, wavered in your support. I’ll never forget it. 🙏❤️
The first two seasons of Manifest are available to stream in their entirety with a NOW Entertainment membership.
