Manifest fans are in need of some good news, and it looks like Netflix may be the ones to deliver it, after all.

The NBC drama, which followed passengers who were aboard a missing plane for five years, was cancelled after three seasons earlier this year. Reports of a revival at Netflix shortly followed, but hopes of a fourth season at the streaming service were shot down.

Now, however, it appears things have changed. According to Deadline, Manifest's producing studio Warner Bros TV is in late-stage talks with Netflix about an order for season four.

Is a second (or third) chance on the cards for the passengers of Montego Air Flight 828? We'll have to wait and see what happens.

This isn't the first time Manifest and Netflix have been in talks together – just a few days after news of the show's axe broke, it was confirmed that the platform had passed on a revival.

Creator Jeff Rake paid tribute to fans of the series in response. "Thank YOU, our fans," he said in a statement.

"You became the Manifesters at Comic-Con 2018. Ever since, you've watched religiously, parsed every word, cried a lot, laughed a little, puzzle-solved, and never, ever, wavered in your support. I'll never forget it."

Of course, there's every chance that Manifest is given a future in a different format, with Rake recently floating the idea of a possible movie or even book picking up where the story left off in season three's cliffhanger finale.

"I would love to finish the story and look, I'm going to take some time," he said back in June. "I'm going to hold out hope that maybe somebody will step up and help us finish that story.

"Whether that means more episodes, whether that means a final kind of movie like they did with the show Firefly, or a lot of people have asked me 'write the book' and you know, that's a cool concept... I'm going to think about it."

Manifest aired on NBC in the US. Sky One and NOW air the show in the UK.
