There is something on the wing of the plane! For the science fiction airplane mystery series Manifesto, the creepy creature is NBC’s decision not to renew for a fourth season. The series joins Debris and Zoey’s Extraordinary Reading List in the pile of rejections that accumulates outside the NBC offices.
Creator Jeff Rake initially sold Manifesto to NBC with a six-season plan already conceptualized. Another network has yet to break in to save the day and bring his plans to life, but according to Deadline, Manifesto could possibly venture onto Netflix after landing in # 1 after debuting on the streaming platform last week. The series produced by Warner Bros. TV and Universal TV fared much better than its four “bubble” counterparts, with ratings higher than Debris and Zoey’s Extraordinary Reading List. The latest series that stands out from these shows is Good girls, without any decision having yet been taken on their renewal.
“I am devastated by NBC’s decision to cancel us. That we were closed in the middle is a punch to say the least ”, Rake share on twitter. “Hoping to find a new home. You, the fans, deserve an end to your story. Thank you for the love shown to me, to the cast and crew. “
Manifesto premiered in September 2018, with Athena Karkanis (Saw IV), Josh Dallas (Thor), Jack Messina, Melissa Roxburgh, JR Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Parveen Kaur and Matt Long. The series focuses on the passengers of Montego Air flight 828, who, after an eventful flight, land only to meet again in five years. As they grapple with their new reality, revelations about their escape begin to unfold. The two-hour season 3 finale aired on NBC last week, ending with classic cliffhangers. The main characters have been killed, some have undergone unexpected changes, and a new mystery surrounding doomed flight 828 has left viewers with many more questions.
