The Big Picture When Manifest was rescued by Netflix back in 2021 after being cancelled by NBC, fans of the drama series couldn't be happier. The show was granted a final super-sized 20-episode final season, split up into two parts. It's hard enough for shows to land on a good ending. There are plenty of beloved shows in the past that have completely screwed things up in the eleventh hour, but the supernatural drama series had a lot on its plate.

Release Date September 24, 2018 Cast Joshua Dallas , Athena Karkanis , Matt Long , Melissa Roxburgh , Luna Blaise Main Genre Sci-Fi Seasons 4 Network NBC , Netflix What Happens in the 'Manifest' Series Finale? The finale starts strong and as wild as ever, with the passengers meeting at the fissure site to face their death date. Convenient reasons drive the non-passengers, Olive , Jared , and Drea , away and back to town, where their realities are about to be erased from existence.

The 'Manifest' Finale Relies on a Tired Trope This ending is just "it was all a dream," but a shared one. At first, this ending seems like it works for the show, but that's only if you don't think about it too hard. Other shows have tried this before, and for the most part, it doesn't work — Life on Mars, Roseanne, and Lost, to name a few.

There's also something to say about Manifest's decision to show happiness when the character's trauma is essentially erased. A much more interesting story to tell is the characters finding joy despite their trauma, and maybe even because of it. Olive is one of the characters that this finale does dirty the most. After her character wasn't always treated the best, a bright spot in her development was her relationship with TJ , whom she met in Season 2.
