Since getting the axe by NBC, Manifest has made quite the impact on Netflix. Unfortunately, the supernatural drama’s tenure in the Top 10 ranking wasn’t enough to net the fan-favorite series a new home on the streaming giant.

Because of the shocking cancellation and Netflix’s pass on saving the series, Manifest has been relegated to ending prematurely. But creator Jeff Rake isn’t ready to give up on fulfilling his mission to bring the diehard fans the full story.

It’s a comfort to fans new and old that Rake’s commitment to the series hasn’t waned in the face of cancellation. If anything, the overwhelming wave of refreshed passion and fandom behind the show has only reinvigorated efforts to bring back the Josh Dallas-led ensemble series.

Although Manifesters should certainly manage their expectations for now, the latest words from the show’s boss should be of some comfort. So, what does the future hold for Manifest? Read on to check out what Rake had to say about efforts to #SaveManifest.

Will there be another season of Manifest?

Rake tweeted to the adoring Manifesters on June 27, “We’re trying to find a way to conclude the series.” He thanked the fans for their support and offered them the caveat that finding a new landing pad for the missing plane drama could take weeks, months or years.

The series had been intended to run for six seasons, which left the story incomplete right at its halfway point. That’s why the confusing cancellation and troubling failure to be saved stung extra hard for its devoted viewers.

Currently, it’s unclear whether Rake intends to bring the series back for new seasons, a limited series or some sort of wrap-up movie. But whatever and however the show’s fearless leader brings the story to the finish line, the fans will be ready with open watch lists.

Where to watch Manifest season 3

While we wait for any news whatsoever on the future of Manifest, most fans who have just recently boarded the series on Netflix are naturally searching for the next chapter of the ever-evolving story. Season 3 won’t be on Netflix in July, but there’s plenty of other ways to watch the latest episodes.

Right now, Manifest season 3 can be watched on Hulu, and Peacock. Of course, if you’re not subscribed to those platforms or prefer Netflix, we’re expecting the now-final season to become available on the streaming giant later this summer or, at the very least, sometime this year.
