Ever since the lead characters boarded the plane in the pilot episode of Manifest, they and the audience have been on a roller coaster ride. This mysterious show is about a group of passengers who managed to travel five years into the future without realizing anything. They land in a future where all their friends and family assumed they were dead, and moved on with their lives. Such an enigmatic plot kept the fans on their toes. Everyone got invested in unravelling the mystery of this time travel. But a bigger twist was awaiting the viewers. After three successful seasons, the series abruptly got cancelled without solving anything.
Fortunately, we have a streaming platform like Netflix that has revived several shows like Lucifer in the past. It has decided to give Manifest a chance to wrap up everything in 20 episodes.
Jeff Rake Says They Will Make The Show That “everyone fell in love with,”
Even though the show was previously planned for six seasons, creator Jeff Rake assures that he wouldn’t deviate from the original script. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Rake said “The endgame won’t change at all. For those who’ve been tracking this story through June and July, they’ll remember that I was hopeful in the early weeks after the cancellation that someone would step up and allow us to make something as modest as a two-hour movie.”It would have been extremely challenging to answer all the questions, especially following the Season 3 cliffhanger. But, now the show is getting 20 hours, instead of two, to give us the closure we deserve. “When I’ve talked in the past about having a roadmap all the way to the end of series, that didn’t mean that I had a roadmap for literally every single episode,” said the creator. “I have a roadmap with a series of twists and turns and flags in the sand that we would ultimately hit in order to tell the core stories within our mythology and within our relationship drama. So it will not be a particularly difficult exercise to overlay that same exact roadmap onto 20 episodes. It will be quite organic.”
Netflix or NBC, it’s good news for fans who can finally get all the questions answered on the supernatural show.
