a Netflix is interested in manifesto Because the series is a huge success in the United States (there, it is they who have the rights to show it in streaming). The attraction has been the most viewed on the platform since June, holding an incredibly first place in the ratings for 27 days in a row.

Series creator Jeff Rake worked out a plot to end in season six. He, along with Warner executives, knocked on the doors of other US networks, channels and streams looking for anyone interested in keeping the series alive. Netflix seems to be the only and last option. Obviously, it has everything to do with work.

It is regular on Netflix to retrieve series that have been canceled from US TV networks. The most successful case is Lucifer, which went streaming after being cut from Fox programming. Designated Survivor (2016-2019), ex-ABC, is another positive example of recovery.
