Manifest is an American supernatural drama-based TV series. It is created by Jeff Rake. It is produced by Cathy Frank, Laura Putney, Margaret Easley, Harvey Waldman, and Marta Gene Camps its production companies are Compari Entertainment, Jeff Rake Productions, Universal Television, and Warner Bros. Television Distribution. It consists of 3 seasons with 42 episodes. Its first season was released on 24th September 2018, the second season was released on 6th January 2020, and the third one was released on 1st April 2021. It was released on NBC Network and Netflix.
The 3rd season of Manifest was left open-ended. In the last season, fans have witnessed the death of one of the main characters of the series. The audiences have also witnessed the mysterious appearance of Cal at his real age. Many were left in shock due to the ending that saw the reappearance of the pilot of flight 828 inside the plane they have in EUREKA, yet the pilot then disappeared with the aircraft after shouting ‘Help’ to the scientist studying the case. This cliff-hanger ending led many fans to clamor for season four, but the end to the series means that it will not arrive.
It is one of the popular shows on Netflix. Despite being the fact that it is very popular but Manifest will not continue after it was ditched by the US broadcaster NBC. It was heard that the first two seasons have not been added for a long time to Netflix’s catalog in the United States.
After the three seasons, fans still have not found that how manifest comes to its conclusion, those who are behind the shows that it would end but as the series was halfway. There had been negotiations for a few days about extending the contracts, but at last, the final decision has been made to bring the show to a close.
According to Deadline, Warner Bros Television, the studio behind Manifest has faced a lot of difficulties in keeping the crew and cast on board, as their contracts are set to expire this June if there was no renewal. It also faced issues regarding the signings that have been already made in previously produced episodes.
Creator Jeff Rake has thought of Manifest as a six-season show as it looked to gradually unravel what happened when the plane crashes in series one. But now the fans of the manifest will have to satisfy them with three seasons that have been shown and hold on to this.
“Thank you, our fans. You became the Manifesters at Comic-Con 2018,” Rake’s tweet read.
“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.”
Manifest has given a lot of prominence in Netflix’s catalog, but it was not enough to save the show. It was like Jupiter’s Legacy, the same story happens to this show also, despite having topped in dozen’s of markets around the world.
