Well the season finale is done so now we wait to see if NBC will renew it. TV Ratings Thursday, June 10: ‘Rebel’ Cancelled at ABC, No Season 2 | TVLine
What, wait another 18 months for the next season to start ?

The delay between the 1st year and the 2nd was painfully long, so long they lost a LOT of people that were interested in it.

If it does come back in a decent amount of time, I'll continue to watch ...

At least they did more with the Plane this past year than the 1st.

Then again, it might be the END of the show.

I tired to watch this show again this year and lost interest all over again. I think they will cancel it from NBC and or move it to Peacock.

At the end of the series finale, who stabbed Grace in the belly? Also, did Cal reappear 5 1/2 years older talking to his dying mom?

.... a bit confused at the season finale ending ......

From watching around the time of Grace's death , I'm gonna say it was the Angelina, seeing it looks like she took the baby with her.
Her entire play was to get the baby the whole time .... her Guardian Angel, as she called her.

This became all the more obvious when she was found hanging out with the "Other " group of 828'ers ...

Yes it was an older Cal speaking to his mom.

I just read that Manifest was canceled so the rest will remain a mystery.

Glad I never invested more than a season and a few eposide this year . I knew it would eventually be cancelled. All Sci Fi shows on network tv usually end up that way . Especially NBC who takes popular shows off for months of a time then runs another season and move it from night to night till the public gives up on it.

All shows are Eventually Cancelled.
The fact that NBC decided to go a year + between episodes ... its amazing that as many as there were, were still watching.

Yes that is true. The difference is WHEN they get cancelled. Most Sci fi tv shows don't live to make season 5 or to even wrap up the show if it is cancelled. Timeless was a great Sci fi show that NBC killed after 2 years but at least they let us get a satisfying ending in a two hour movie. Networks have NO patience for Sci fi shows. CW ( former WB) is the only channel I see that has mainly sci fi and fantasy shows in prime time. But that channel has few viewers.

X-Files went 11 seasons.

There are some that make it, most don't, but some do ...

If your specifically speaking of NBC, your right.

I read that they (NBC) thought this show would go at least 6 seasons. The people that watch this show are really up in arms wanting to know why they canceled it.
I wonder what piece of junk they have to put on when they decide that this show was actually going to come back ...

NBC Killed this themselves.
They have no one to blame but themselves.

I agree -- it will probably be junk. But I'll bet it will be something cheaper to produce. Its all about advertising dollars vs. production cost.

Also, I think Manifest hurt itself by being a series that you had to watch almost every preceding show to know what the heck was going on. That made it hard to attract new viewers.

Some of the longest running TV series were easy to watch if you missed several episodes. Almost each one had a story and a conclusion within a single show.

And (of course) they lost many long term viewers with the ridiculous gaps between 'seasons'. 12 episodes and then wait a year or so doesn't work.

There two types of shows ....
Ones with a conclusion are good and what most go with, however, the Series version like this one allows you to build the people more in depth.

That said, I think we all agree that they went Plenty in depth with them here.
