Still upset over NBC canceling the supernatural drama Manifest? Well, there may be some hope for fans of the series.
Creator and executive producer Jeff Rake has allegedly sketched out a formal ending—but not in the form of your traditional TV show. Instead, Jeff wants to take the series to the big screen to give it the proper ending he thinks the story deserves.
Television ratings for the show ultimately led to its demise, but on Netflix, viewers soon became captivated with the show's story. Once NBC announced its official cancelation, both fans and cast members from the show pleaded for Netflix to pick up Manifest.
"Manifesters! Your support is awe-inspiring. We’re trying to find a way to conclude the series. Could take a week, a month, a year. But we’re not giving up. You deserve an end to the story. Keep the conversation alive. If it works out, it’s because of YOU. #SaveManifest," Jeff wrote on Twitter.

Our hopes were dashed though once Netflix announced its decision to pass on picking up the show. The executive producer hasn't given up hope on the show yet. Instead, he's been at work creating a feature-length Manifest film. Now he just needs a platform to air or stream it.
As a new fan base for the show emerges on Netflix, Jeff is hopeful for the future of the show. In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly, he acknowledged that he's aware the show may not get the ending it deserves, but as of now, he isn't giving up anytime soon.
"I want to channel all of my energy toward the future, toward the positive, toward a path that would allow us to finish the story," he told the outlet. "As I told our fans on social media, it may take a long time to figure that path out. It could be a year, and full disclosure, it may never happen! But I'm not going to stop trying."
