Last year, days after a two-part cliffhanger aired, Manifest was suddenly canceled by NBC. But the series about the passengers of Montego Air Flight 828, was thrown a lifeline by passionate fans who created a #SaveManifest campaign. Netflix heard the call for help and picked up the series for 20 episodes last year.
The mystery thriller will get now get the opportunity to wrap up the story.
“What started years ago as a flight of fancy deep in my imagination has evolved into the jet engine journey of a lifetime,” Manifest creator Jeff Rake said in a statement last year. “Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisioned the worldwide outpouring of love and support for this story, its characters, and the team who work so hard to bring it all to life. That we will be able to reward the fans with the ending they deserve moves me to no end. On behalf of the cast, the crew, the writers, directors, and producers, thank you to Netflix, to Warner Bros., and of course to the fans. You did this.”
