It’s been a roller rollercoaster of a week for NBC’s Manifest.
First, the program hit Netflix for the very first time and rapidly increased to the top of the streaming service’s self-reported charts. (As of press time, it’s the No. 1 series on the website.) Then, NBC ended on the program entirely, cancelling it after 3 seasons.
After days of inviting brand-new fans to the program through tweet, developer Jeff Rake spoke out on the distressing statement.
“My dear Manifesters, I’m devastated by NBC’s decision to cancel us,” he composed, with the hashtag #SaveManifest. “That we’ve been shut down in the middle is a gut punch to say the least. Hoping to find a new home. You the fans deserve an ending to your story. Thanks for the love shown to me, cast, and crew.”
The news is specifically regrettable thinking about how the season 3 ending ended with a significant character death and a big cliffhanger (and no option to the seasons-long secret about what is really occurring with this time-traveling airplane), however there’s constantly hope that another house can be discovered for the drama.
