Is Manifest Season 5 in the works? Find out.
Part 1 of Manifest season 4 streamed on Netflix on November 4, 2022, and now fans are already concerned about the future of the show, given its history. If you have seen Manifest season 4, part 1, then you know that it leaves the viewers even more befuddled than before. With so many questions left unanswered, fans have been wondering if certain decisions will be revisited in the future like they were done in the past.
We do know that there will be a part 2 containing the remaining ten episodes that might answer the questions and clear the brain fog. For those unversed, season 4 is the final season of Manifest that was ordered by Netflix and will reportedly constitute 20 episodes. Part 1 released on November 4, whereas part 2 will be released in 2023. The official release date has not been out yet.
For those unversed, the official synopsis of Manifest reads (courtesy of IMDb):
“A commercial airliner suddenly reappears after being missing for five years. As those aboard reintegrate into society, they experience guiding voices and visions of events yet to occur, and soon a deeper mystery unfolds.”
Will there be a Manifest Season 5?
Taking into consideration the history of Netflix and Manifest, we can never set in stone the future of the show. However, as of now, Manifest was renewed for a fourth season which is reportedly the final season. You might take into account the case of Lucifer, which was renewed for a final season only to be renewed for another season, but according to Netflix Life, the chances of Manifest renewing for another season are low.
The creator of the series, Jeff Rake, had originally planned for six seasons to tell his story. However, when the show was canceled by NBC and Netflix renewed the fourth season, which was decided to be the final season, his blueprint was undoubtedly changed.
As a result, Rake condensed the story, so he ended up telling the story and staying authentic to it. So, either way, Manifest Season 5 won’t be happening because the season is already the condensed form of the whole.
Manifest Season 5 Release Date
As aforementioned, there’s no official update on Manifest Season 5, so there’s no release date as well. We won’t be making any predictions since the chances of Manifest Season 5 happening are very slim.
How has the journey of Manifest been so far?
The pilot episode of Manifest was where the journey of the show took off, featuring the Flight 828 take-off on NBC. Ranked as the 9th top-rated show on NBC that season, the series was successful in gaining traction with the masses. Eventually, NBC ordered a second and a third season, but unfortunately, the viewership plummeted over time.
NBC had to cancel the show after the Manifest season 3 finale since it was not receiving the expected critical acclaim. However, to give the show one last effort, Warner Brothers Television licensed seasons 1-2 to Netflix on June 10, 2021.
With the arrival of Manifest seasons on Netflix, we all know the fate of the show. It was ranked in Netflix’s top 10s, which meant that the show deserved a second chance. On August 28, 2021, a deal was finalized for a super-sized final season of Manifest.
When it comes to the deal, Netflix made sure that they received the global rights and that the core cast should come back since a majority of cast contracts had expired during that point
