Where is flight 828? On Netflix! The deal is done. “Manifest” will have a fourth season on the streaming platform. The cliffhanger will be resolved. NBC looks pretty lame for cancelling the show in the first place.
I’m proud to say this column had the original scoop that “Manifest” was not dead and would return in some form. What a mess! NBC cancelled “Manifest” because Dick Wolf promised them another hour of “Law & Order” branded TV. Then Wolf forgot to develop a show. By that time, “Manifest” was already a hit n Netflix. And that’s where the deal was made.
