Sometimes the course of stories changes, as was the case with Manifest. The NBC series, which is banked by Stephen King, was canceled after its third season in 2021. Beyond the fact that it had many fans and that it had been well received critically, the decision was to discontinue it. Nevertheless, With its arrival on Netflix, the fate of this fiction, like that of the passengers on flight 828 in which the plot revolves, changed and had a new opportunity. The streaming platform helped to pick up the story and give it a less open closure. The actors of the original cast were contacted again and they renewed to do a new and final season.. Something that was highly celebrated on social networks since the end had not lived up to expectations and had left many questions in the followers of the series.
These could be answered with the new chapters that are available from today on Netflix. Although it is difficult to imagine a rational answer about what happened to the plane (and its passengers), which disappeared after a lightning strike and reappeared 5 years later as if by magic. In addition to the strangeness of the case, people who had been left for dead come back with the same age at the time they took the flight. With this beginning that poses a space-time dilemma, the series adds a new fantastic seasoning: the calls, as the protagonists call them. Those who rose from the ashes not only have to reinsert themselves into a society to which they no longer belong, but also have hallucinations that connect them and, in some way, guide them to save other passengers.
Between the comings and goings of Ben (Josh Dallas), Cal (Ty Doran, in his adult version), Olive (Luna Blaise) and Michaela Stone (Melissa Roxburgh), the series shows different aspects of the passengers who, first unknowingly , They are connected. The calls guide them to a specific date: June 2, 2024, when, they discover, all those who disappeared will die unless they manage to keep the lifeboat afloat. With some mystical elements, others from ancient history and many concatenated clues, this story is that of a group of people who pass daily tests to avoid the dreaded day of death.
NBC had closed the story, which had been very well received both in the United States and in some countries of Latin America (among them: Mexico, Colombia, Argentina Y Chili), as it began: with the plane of flight 828, with its pilot, who had gone through a storm in search of the truth, disappearing again. This time from the laboratory where the Government was trying to understand what had happened and was experimenting with omega sapphire and passengers. The divine, the holy grail, the calls, the mystical… everything entered a black hole. Not only were there no answers, but Cal, after disappearing again, returned 5 years older and arrived just to see how the girl he was “meant” to help, Angelina, had stabbed and killed Grace, his mother, and had kidnapped her 1-year-old sister, Eden.
Many fans of the series found parallels between manifesto Y lostAre the passengers dead? That answer would have to be given by this fourth season that premiered the first 10 episodes this Friday and that, in 2023, will premiere the other 10 with which it will close, this time definitively, the story.
