Happy Manifest Day — Manifest has officially resurrected.
Much like the passengers of Flight 828, the plane drama has been saved by Netflix for a fourth and final supersized season.
The upcoming season will feature a whopping 20 episodes, and will likely be split into parts.
“Couldn’t let a day as significant as today go uncelebrated. Manifest will officially return for a super-sized fourth and final season, only on Netflix,” the official Twitter page posted.

The exciting news was announced on August 28, 8/28, better known as Manifest Day.
“What started years ago as a flight of fancy deep in my imagination has evolved into the jet engine journey of a lifetime,” showrunner Jeff Rake said in a statement. “Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisioned the worldwide outpouring of love and support for this story, its characters, and the team who work so hard to bring it all to life. That we will be able to reward the fans with the ending they deserve moves me to no end. On behalf of the cast, the crew, the writers, directors, and producers, thank you to Netflix, to Warner Bros., and of course to the fans. You did this.”

NBC initially grounded the supernatural drama over the summer following an intense season three finale that left fans with several jaw-dropping cliffhangers.
We even put together a list of questions that we need answered immediately!
Fans campaigned heavily on social media to save the series, but neither NBC nor Netflix budged, with the latter passing on the drama even after its first two seasons hit and stay at the top spot for several weeks.
However, fans weren’t backing down, and even some big celebrities began tweeting about their obsession with the show.
Netflix eventually realized that they were making a huge mistake by not picking up the series, and the rest, well, that’s history.
We’re thrilled the series is getting a second chance at life, just like the passengers.
Now… we’re going to binge-watch the first three seasons until season 4 is ready for takeoff!
WATCH: Netflix Gives Fans Sneak Peek at ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4
What goes bump in the night?
The stranger kids make it a mission to find out in the most recent sneak peek for Stranger Things.
The trailer, which premiered as part of Netflix’s “Tudum,” opens up with a family of four moving into a spacious, luxurious house.
The kids begin to notice strange occurrences before they wind up lying lifeless on the floor.
Flash-forward to the 1980s when the kids (now teens), along with Steve, arrive at the abandoned clues to find answers.
The clip also includes a grandfather clock in the attic exploding as it strikes midnight. Based on the debris floating around it, it might just be the portal to the Upside Down.
Season 4 is set to premiere in 2022 due to COVID-19 delays.
‘Controlling Britney Spears’ Documentary Premieres on FX and Hulu Tonight
“Controlling Britney Spears,” a surprise sequel to the Emmy-nominated documentary Framing Britney Spears, premieres tonight on Hulu and FX at 10/9c.
The sequel will feature the accounts as told by insiders with intimate knowledge of Spears’ daily life under the conservatorship. Additionally, it will include a detailed confidential report previously published by The New York Times, that disclosed Spears talking to a court investigator in which she described the conservatorship as “an oppressive and controlling tool against her.”
According to TVLine, in the exclusive New York Times investigation, “a portrait emerges of an intense surveillance apparatus that monitored every move she made.”
Producer Liz Day said, “Britney’s situation raises a lot of important questions about the conservatorship system at large and whether it is working properly. We felt that it was in the public interest to examine that.”
Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, became the solitary conservator over her estate in 2008. Through this, he gained control over the most important aspects of her life including financial and medical decisions.
13 years later, now 39 years old, Spears is in a legal battle trying to end the conservatorship altogether to regain control over her life. The next court hearing is set for Wednesday, September 29.
Fans can watch the documentary on FX or Hulu starting at 10 p.m.
The sequel comes just days before Netflix’s documentary titled Britney vs. Spears premieres on September 28.
The Unofficial ‘Hocus Pocus’ Cookbook Will Put a Spell on You This Halloween
I smell… a cook booo-ooo-ookk!
Hocus Pocus is a staple Halloween movie. Despite premiering nearly 30 years ago, it continues to be the go-to choice every Halloween.
It’s so iconic, in fact, that Freeform is airing it a whopping 14 times throughout the month of October as part of its annual “31 Nights of Halloween” schedule!
You’ll obviously need treats and potions to keep yourself and your loved ones satiated during the viewing party, which is where The Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook: Bewitchingly Delicious Recipes for Fans of the Halloween Classic comes into play.
The spooky cookbook, written by Bridget Thoreson, features all the best and mysterious recipes from the 1993 film.
There’s something for everyone as some fan-favorite dishes include: Baked Witch Casserole; Mischief Night Pasta; Bones of 100 Chickens; Life Potion Soup; Dead Man’s Toes; Airhead Virgin Mocktail; and much more!
“I hope you enjoy this homage to Hocus Pocus as much as you enjoy the film itself,” author Bridget Thoreson said in the press release. “While blondies are no substitute for Bette and no cocktail is quite as funny as hearing a young girl humiliate her older brother by saying ‘Yabos,’ I hope you’ll find the recipes and references fun, delicious, and delightfully spooky, and you’ll rewatch the film again and again accompanied by the goodies in this booo-ooooo-ooook.”
The cookbook is the perfect gift for all ages, and a must-have for every fan, especially the OG ones.
