TV Line:

Manifest‘s destiny is up in the air again.

Just weeks after NBC cancelled the sci-fi drama after three seasons, TVLine can confirm that the network has restarted talks with Warner Bros. Television about a possible Season 4.

As an added twist, Deadline reports that Netflix is also taking part in the renewal talks, signaling a possible mutually beneficial arrangement between NBC and the streamer.

Reps for NBC, Netflix and Warner Bros. Television declined to comment. Speculation about Manifest‘s potential un-cancellation was first floated by Showbiz411.

The news — which is no doubt giving Timeless fans a serious case of dé·jà vu — comes as Manifest has been burning up Netflix’s consumer-facing “Top 10” widget in the wake of its mid-June cancellation at NBC.

Me, too. I don’t watch it but I don’t get why a popular show like this gets canceled

Money. The show may be popular, but it doesn't get the audience the nets and sponsors  want.

I think the preferred group is 18-49 years.

According to The wrap, Manifest scored 47 out of 200 shows in that demographic. The ratings went down each season

Shows like this just don't seem to grab and hold a sufficient audience to last. In today's world X-Files, Fringe and perhaps LOST would not make it. The Nets want a show to hit the ground running and increase its audience very season.

that's why I think it will end up at a streaming service or non-network cable channel
