As an American supernatural drama TV series produced by Jeff Rake, ‘Manifest’ premiered on September 24, 2018, on NBC. With its unique and exciting storyline, 'Manifest' centers around siblings Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) and Ben (Josh Dallas), passengers and crew members of a commercial airline “Flight 828”. After takeoff, the airplane experiences some turbulence, disappears and reappears five and a half years later.
What happened to them? Where was the plane all the time? How are they all connected? What about the Callings? And who was responsible for all of this? Watching Manifest will undoubtedly make you question a lot of things.
After airing for three seasons on NBC, the show was canceled in June 2021. It was unclear whether a finale would be possible or not, leaving fans hanging. It was not until a year later that Netflix announced that the series would be renewed for a fourth and final season.
As soon as the three seasons were released on Netflix, ‘Manifest’ broke streaming records in the US and other countries around the world.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the program was seen by 25 million Netflix accounts in the United States and Canada in its first month. Even after dropping out of the top spot, Manifest continues to dominate the Netflix charts. In August 2022, ‘Manifest’ surpassed its streaming-ratings records for six weeks straight, with more than a billion views weekly. A month later, ‘Manifest’ has become the third program in Netflix history to remain in the Top 10 for 100 consecutive days.
Honestly? I couldn't stop binge-watching. Aside from the talented actors, the story is just outstanding! The plot, the events, and the imagination are incredible. At the end of each episode, there was a hook, something to look for in the next one. There was a lot of buzz about 'Manifest' and it's still standing strong!
It didn't take Netflix long to share a sneak peek at the trailer to keep fans excited and eager to see what awaits them in the 4th season.
The most-awaited trailer for Netflix's fourth season was released on the 28th of August (8/28) 2022, marking what can be seen as a symbolic day for "Flight 828". It was a marketing strategy that paid off and signaled the commitment and devotion of the streaming service to make ‘Manifest’ a top priority.
