This happens every summer: your flight is canceled and you run out of vacation. But it looks like the ‘Manifest’ plane could re-start its engines. The series created by Jeff Rake could be renewed for a fourth season a month after its cancellation according to Deadline.
NBC would be reviewing the possibilities of renewal with Warner Bros. TV, the producer of ‘Manifest’, a series that it canceled just a month ago along with other fictions such as ‘Good girls’, despite stable audiences and its success on Netflix. The streaming platform did not want to rescue her either, although ‘Manifest’ was being a success in its American catalog.
What has changed? According to Deadline, The cancellation of ‘Good Girls’ and the fact that the spin-off of ‘Law and Order’ titled ‘For the Defense’ will not be produced have finally caused NBC to have the budget to consider other options, in addition to holes in your grill.
Meanwhile, the first two seasons of ‘Manifest’ continue to be a hit on Netflix in the US, and fans continue to insist on networks with the hashtag #SaveManifest. Therefore, Netflix would have resumed the conversations to see that the series continues in its top 10 after this time.
Problems with international rights
One of the several factors that could complicate this renewal, in addition to the contracts already completed for the distribution, is the international distribution rights. NBC and Netflix would be considering a joint renewal, but the streaming platform usually wants worldwide rights to their titles, and Warner Bros. TV has been selling ‘Manifest’ market to market. In Spain, for example, you can see all three seasons on HBO Spain.
In its favor is that Netflix and Warner Bros. TV have already reached a similar agreement with ‘Lucifer’, fixing the problems of international distribution.
