Manifest Season 4 – Why the Creators Cancelled the show?
After the show creators announced the cancellation of Season 4, everyone wants to know why it happened? When the news broke on the internet, fans couldn’t find anything worse than that. Season 3 ended on a cliffhanger and it made the audience realize that there will be season 4.
Now the season 4 is officially canceled, making the audience sick to know what will be the future of the series. According to the sources, the show was already finding trouble deciding whether to renew the series for season 4. But it later came out to be officially canceled.
Despite getting amazing ratings and viewership and even scored the #1 position in Netflix for the most-watched show, it didn’t renew.
The reason for the cancellation of Manifest season 4 is not yet announced clearly but we can see the downfall in the average ratings and the viewership of the show. When the show was first released, it was viewed with an average of 7 Million views. When season 3 was released, the average viewership decreased to 3.1 Million. But still, the ratings are quite enough for the creators to release another season. Jeff Rake tweeted for the fans saying,
My dear Manifesters,
I’m devastated by NBC’s decision to cancel us. 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. #savemanifest

Manifest Season 4 – What is the future of this series?
After the series got canceled, there are still hopes left for the viewers. Season 4 ended on Cliffhanger and there are still many things that are uncovered in the show. Whoever watches the show, will definitely find that there are many of the little things needed to be covered up. Like, the suspense of Flight 828 and its 191 passengers.
Moreover, NBC has already decided to cancel the show and Netflix is also not taking much interest in its production. But some fans are still there for the show to release its season.
There is a possibility of releasing a movie or a book. This was officially revealed by Jaki in his Instagram post. The post says, “I would love to finish the story and look, I’m going to take some time,”
“I’m going to hold out hope that maybe somebody will step up and help us finish that story – whether that means more episodes, whether that means a final kind of movie like they did with the show Firefly, or a lot of people have asked me ‘write the book’ and you know, that’s a cool concept but [it’s a major endeavor] and I’m going to think about it.
Manifest Season 4 – Will there be a Movie?
The creators of the show have shown their interest in completing the show in a good ending that will make the people satisfy at least. Jake has already told the fans about the possibility of a book or a movie.
Jeff Rake said in a post, “At some point in time, I will figure out how to finish the story in a way that honors the story we’ve told so far because so much love and care and precision and money and blood, sweat and tears went into these first three seasons [that] for me to summarily blurt out the rest of the story in an article or in a series of tweets… it’s not happening.
He continued, “It would be a let-down just because it’s not just that people want to know the ending but it’s that people want to experience the ending.
“To just lay out some story beats summarily could never hold a candle to what that experience would have been like if we had the resources to, again not to necessarily shoot three more seasons of a television show but even if I could figure out how to get the financing to do some abbreviated movie for television; the compressed version of the end of the story.”
He explained that their team was looking for a satisfactory ending. In the end, he left the audience hanging by saying, “Hopefully some savvy executive out there at some platform will decide it’s worth finishing the story and I’m going to give it some time to see if that happy result can occur.”
