Netflix is reportedly in the final stages of locking in a deal with Warner Bros TV for ordering Season 4 of the missing plane drama Manifest. Warner Bros TV has reportedly begun negotiations with the cast members and offering “if-come” contracts to writers contingent on the deal with Netflix.
Manifest has been a top performer on Netflix ever since the streamer got rights to Seasons 1 and 2. After the show got canceled, multiple contenders were vying for a chance to get the series for Season 4, including NBCUniversal making a push for either one of the open slots on NBC or streaming on Peacock. Now it sounds as though Netflix is the only contender, and that negotiations are nearing the final stages.
Manifest was one of the top 10 rankings on Netflix when it was canceled, and outraged fans took to Twitter pushing the #SaveManifest hashtag campaign which proved effective after all. Netflix originally passed on the opportunity to bring Season 4 exclusively to streaming, but now it looks like the show will land at the streamer in the end if all goes well.
