'Manifest' Creator Jeff Rake Reveals Plan B for the Show, Gives Fans Hope for Closure

Manifest was shockingly cancelled after three seasons at NBC and fans were rightfully so upset by the decision. The third season finale included cliffhangers that will not be wrapped up due to the cancellation.

Now, the show’s creator is revealing the Plan B for the show after streamers chose not to save the show for a fourth season. The Plan B? A feature film or movie finale to wrap up the show’s story in a two-hour timeframe.

The show’s creator, Jeff Rake, told EW, “Twenty days after we’ve premiered on Netflix, I’ve kind of moved away from the plan of finding a home for seasons 4, 5, and 6 of Manifest, even though I’ve always talked about Manifest being a six-season show. Back in the day, I laid out a six-season roadmap for NBC, and I’m halfway through. I had giant cliffhangers in the season 3 finale, so I had every intention to have three more seasons to slow-burn the back half of the story.”

He continued, “I’m reading the writing on the wall that we may not find a home for three more seasons of the show, so I moved to plan B: Some platform would bankroll a feature or a movie finale, like we saw with Timeless, Firefly, and Deadwood. I just need a modest budget to tell the story. I am personally sketching out how to consolidate the back half of the series into a much more streamlined, cut-to-the-chase two-hour finale that would distill all of the hanging chads of the series. That’s where my head is at. There is a huge appetite for people wanting to know what’s that end of the story, what happened to the passengers, what ultimately happened to that airplane.”
