Following NBC’s decision to cancel its mystery thriller “Manifest” after three seasons earlier this week, Netflix has now reportedly emerged as the main potential new home for the series.
The first two seasons of the missing plane drama debuted on Netflix last Thursday and has since climbed to number one in the U.S. it has held for a week now.
Thanks in part to this performance metric, Deadline reports that conversations between Warner Bros. Television and Netflix are underway with the streamer assessing the viability and finances of a possible pickup.
Netflix has had some success with covers of canceled broadcast network series such as ABC’s “Designated Survivor”, A&E “Longmire”, AMC’s “The Killing” and the most famous “Lucifer”. By FOX, also produced by Warner Bros. Television.
“Manifest” creator Jeff Rake has previously talked about a six-season plan for “Manifest” and has been hoping the show finds a new home. Same thing with the actors who would all be willing to continue the series.
