Viewers will get a conclusion on everything behind Flight 828.
Shadow and Act has confirmed that Netflix has scooped up the drama series that was canceled by NBC. The show, which aired on Netflix after wrapping its seasons on linear television, will have a fourth season on the streaming giant and it will be its final one.
The final season will have 20 episodes, which Netflix calls “supersized” and will “bring the story of the passengers of Flight 828 to its conclusion.” We’re hearing that the episodes will not drop at once and will be delivered in “parts” as Netflix does with a lot of its original shows.
The official description: When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years — and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible in this emotionally rich, unexpected journey into a world grounded in hope, heart, and destiny.
“What started years ago as a flight of fancy deep in my imagination has evolved into the jet engine journey of a lifetime,” said creator and showrunner Jeff Rake. “Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisioned the worldwide outpouring of love and support for this story, its characters, and the team who work so hard to bring it all to life. That we will be able to reward the fans with the ending they deserve moves me to no end. On behalf of the cast, the crew, the writers, directors, and producers, thank you to Netflix, to Warner Bros., and of course to the fans. You did this.”
Bela Bajaria, Netflix’s Head of Global TV, said, “Since its premiere on Netflix in June, Manifest has proven very popular with our members. Jeff Rake and his team have crafted a beguiling mystery that has viewers around the world on the edge of their seats and believing again in second chances, and we’re thrilled that they will bring fans some closure with this final super-sized season.”
The cast members, led by Josh Dallas and Melissa Roxburgh, are expected to return.
