Is there anything Manifest can’t do? These days, it’s seeming more and more unlikely that the former NBC series and future Netflix original series can’t overcome any turbulence thrown its way. After all, it came back from the dead just like the plane full of passenger in its story.

It’s no secret that after getting canceled by NBC, Manifest rose to unlikely popularity as the first two season started streaming on Netflix. Before long, the in-limbo series was a top 10 heavy hitter, battling it out with huge Netflix originals like Virgin River.

All of those new fans discovering the show on Netflix, and the loud chorus of loyal fans supporting their favorite show online, helped Netflix swoop in and save the show for a fourth and final season. Obviously, it’s no wonder they did with everything Manifest achieved.

As Forbes reports, Manifest becomes just the third series to hit the milestone of spending 100 days or more in the top 10 ranking on Netflix. Shockingly enough, it’s now technically the first Netflix original series to cross that threshold, earning much deserved bragging rights.

The other two series to spend 100 days or more in the Netflix top 10 are the animated children’s program Cocomelon and the fan-favorite NBC comedy series The Office, which now streams on Peacock. Cocomelon has spent 387 days in the top 10, while The Office spent 182 days.

Just outside of these three shows, the summer hit Outer Banks hits just below 100 days with 93 days spent in the top 10, while The CW’s All American has amassed 89 days. Because the Lucifans are wondering, Lucifer has only spent 66 days in the top 10 so far.

Clearly, it’s a rarity for a series to hit a stride of 100 days or more on the Netflix top 10, and it doesn’t take away from any show’s value or success. Some of the biggest, most popular shows aren’t even in Forbes’ list of 20 shows, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t undeniable favorites.

To add further bragging rights onto Manifest’s latest history-making moves at Netflix, according to Forbes, the series has spent the most days at No. 1 in the top 10 with a whopping total of 31 days. Other shows include Ginny & Georgia (29 days), Tiger King (27 days), Virgin River (24 days) and The Queen’s Gambit (23 days).
