Manifest was canceled by NBC back in June. However, the show continued to top the most-watched programs. In late August, Netflix announced that Manifest would be coming back for a final season. And, Matt Long has confirmed that he will be back for Manifest‘s final season.
Long has stated that “I don’t know what’s coming. I just hope that Zeke plays a really big part in it, and I’m just really excited and can’t wait to see what it is. We’ve got a few months before we start up, so we’re all really thrilled.”
“I will be back for some of it, and we are just trying to work out the maximum amount that we can,” Long continued. “I love the characters so much, but as you know, the show was canceled. The other show is a pilot. We don’t know what’s happening with it yet. It’s also a really awesome project. So, we’re just trying to work out schedules and everybody wants the best thing for everyone. So fingers crossed that it all works out for the best.”
“Since its premiere on Netflix in June, Manifest has proven very popular with our members,” said Netflix’s head of global television Bela Bajaria. “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.”
