Fortunately for worried fans, Manifest received some of the strongest ratings in the group. Although Season 3 saw a drop in the overall viewership numbers — the Season 1 premiere drew in more than 10 million people, a rare feat with which Season 3 could hardly keep pace — the majority of the episodes attracted more than 3 million viewers on average just the same. 

The Season 3 premiere of Manifest drew in around 4 million viewers, according to TV Series Finale. The consequent episodes saw a slight decrease, attracting roughly around 2.9 million on average. Meanwhile, the most popular episode to date in Season 4 of Good Girls was watched by around 1.7 million viewers.

'Manifest' was sold to NBC with a six-season plan.

Developed by Warner Bros. TV and Uni TV, Manifest was first sold to NBC with a six-season plan.

Manifest fans have already started using the #RenewManifest hashtag on Twitter in the hope of making the six-season plan a reality. 

As long as it's not officially canceled, there's still hope for more Manifest
