No surprise Ted Sarandos saved this present like he was was Captain Sully and Netflix was the Hudson.
“Manifest” Season 4 wasn’t gonna occur — however then got here the streaming numbers.
Netflix launched reruns of “Manifest” Seasons 1 and a pair of on June 10, 2021; 4 days later, NBC canceled its “Misplaced”-like missing-airplane sequence. On June 24, 2021, Netflix launched its weekly World High 10 TV and Movie lists. Guess which sequence claimed two of the High 5 slots?
Season 1 ranked third on the streamer’s inaugural weekly rating; “Manifest” Season 2 was fifth. The primary season would go on to seem on Netflix’s High 10 English-language TV sequence checklist 18 extra instances — the one different present to drag that off is a little bit ditty known as “Stranger Issues 4.” (The exhibits to return closest to 19 appearances, “Ozark” Season 4 and restricted sequence “Maid,” every appeared 13 instances on the checklist.)
“Manifest” was a High 5 broadcast leisure sequence in its first season; past prime-time soccer, solely “This Is Us” drew larger Nielsen rankings amongst adults 18-49 on NBC that yr. The next season, it dropped out of the High 20; Season 3 didn’t make the High 50. Season 2 appeared eight instances on the weekly High 10. “Manifest” touched down fairly properly on Netflix — pun meant.
NBC’s third season started its Netflix reruns August 21, 2021; per week later, the service introduced it could stream an all-original fourth season. The NBC sequence was now a Netflix sequence. (The manufacturing corporations stay the identical: It’s a Warner Bros. present co-produced with Common Tv.) “Manifest” Season 4 will premiere its first 10 episodes on the streamer November 4, with the again half to premiere at a later date.
Had Netflix rolled out its World High 10 two weeks — and even one week — earlier, “Manifest” Season 1 would possible be the season of tv with probably the most appearances on its English-language TV checklist to this point. That wouldn’t make it extra fashionable than “Stranger Issues 4,” nonetheless.

The fourth season of “Stranger Issues” is Netflix’s most-watched English-language TV present, with greater than 1.35 billion hours seen over the primary 28 days of every episode’s availability. That’s Netflix’s self-appointed cutoff for rating its sequence and movies on an all-time foundation.
In that respect, “Manifest” Season 1 doesn’t make Netflix’s all-time English-language High 10 — it’s most likely not even shut. (Netflix doesn’t share hours streamed past what’s made accessible on its High 10 website.)
That’s no shock. Since solely Netflix originals can seize first-run viewers, no non-Netflix unique sequence make the all-time checklist. (“Lucifer” Season 5 ranks sixth all-time on the English-language checklist. The previous Fox present was saved by Netflix after three seasons on broadcast — similar to “Manifest.”)
Prior seasons of “Manifest” and “Stranger Issues” may have extra alternatives to return to the weekly English-language TV High 10. Fashionable exhibits on Netflix are inclined to take pleasure in a surge of catch-up viewing forward of their season premieres.
Three foreign-language sequence have appeared on their very own devoted weekly checklist greater than “Manifest” Season 1 and “Stranger Issues 4” did on the English-language aspect. (“Squid Sport” isn’t the longest-spanning sequence; it’s simply burned the brightest.)
“Yo soy Betty, la fea: Season 1” made the weekly non-English-language High 10 checklist 30 instances, which is 5 extra weeks than fellow Colombian telenovela “Café con aroma de mujer: Season 1,” and 10 greater than “Squid Sport.” Nonetheless, the South-Korean smash hit is Netflix’s most-watched present ever in any language, with an unbelievable 1.65 billion hours seen over its first 28 days.
“Manifest” Season 4 gained’t problem that extremely coveted report, but it surely might create some turbulence (sorry, couldn’t resist yet one more) on the English-language checklist. See the present High 10 all-time under.
