Will There Be Another Season of NBC’s ‘Manifest’? Season 4 Release Date: Will There Be Another Season of NBC’s ‘Manifest’?
On June 10, Manifest will premiere its two-part season finale, which is sure to be full of twists and turns in the story of what happened to Flight 828. The future of the NBC show, like that aircraft at the outset of the broadcast, is very much up in the air.
Many of NBC’s shows, including The Blacklist, the three Chicago series, and Young Rock, have been renewed for the 2021-2022 television season. Manifest, on the other hand, is not yet one of them.
Here’s what we know about the mystery drama’s chances of receiving a fourth season.
Is there going to be a second season of Manifest?
The last time NBC discussed the show’s future was at the end of May.
“We would love for the program to continue on NBC,” Warner Bros. Television Group chief Channing Dungey told Deadline.
We’re still in talks with NBC, and we’re crossing our fingers.”
Susan Rovner, the show’s most powerful ally, is on its side. When she was at Warner Bros., the TV executive sold the show to NBC, and as the new chairman of entertainment content at NBCUniversal, she will now make the decision concerning the show’s future.

Manifest, according to TV Line’s 2021 renewal guide, “may go either way.” According to Deadline, the program may be renewed for a fourth season with some “flexible deal-making and concessions.”
In terms of ratings, the show is right in the middle of the NBC rankings. Among the demographic of people aged 18-to-49, which is key to advertisers, Manifest is ninth of the network’s 19 scripted shows. In the overall ratings, the show fares less well at 11 out of 19.
Across Season 3, the show lost around 20 percent of its overall audience, and 29 percent of its audience among the 18-to-49 demographic. However, it performed better than freshman comedies Young Rock and Kenan, both of which got renewedâ€”though they are much cheaper to produce than the high-concept mystery of Manifest.
Previously, showrunner Jeff Rake has said he has a six-season plan for the show.
During a 2020 Television Critics Association panel, he said: “I pitched it, as someone who didn’t have. This is a brief summary.
