Netflix in Talks to Continue Manifest Following NBC Cancellation

Following the recent cancellation of the sci-fi drama Manifest at NBC, Deadline brings word that Netflix is currently in talks with Manifest studio Warner Bros. TV to pick up the series. The streamer reportedly became the best possible destination for the canceled series after the first two seasons debuted on Netflix last week and climbed to the top spot in the U.S. The streamer is “evaluating the viability and financials” of possibly continuing the series. Creator Jeff Rake, who has a six-season plan for the show, remains hopeful about finding a new home for Manifest.
