The passengers and crew of Montego Air Flight 828 are getting the ending they deserve, thanks to Netflix.

The streaming service picked up two seasons out of three of the canceled NBC series ManifestManifest in June, and it’s been explosively popular there. (The third season has since been added.) So now, on the symbolically meaningful day of Aug. 28 (8/28, aka Montego Air Flight 828), Netflix has confirmed its plans to give the series a “super-sized” fourth and final season.

“What started years ago as a flight of fancy deep in my imagination has evolved into the jet engine journey of a lifetime. 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,” series creator Jeff Rake said in a statement accompanying Netflix’s announcement.

He added: “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.”

The fourth season of Manifest, which Netflix explicitly refers to as the “final” season, is going to be a big one, with 20 episodes in total. (That’s a lot these days, especially for a show with hour-long episodes.) We’ve heard that the 20 episodes will also be broken up into multiple releases, as Netflix has done before with shows like The Get DownThe Get Down and Masters of the Universe: RevelationMasters of the Universe: Revelation.

For those who haven’t hopped on board before, Manifest is a supernatural drama series about the aforementioned flight 828, which takes off from Jamaica one day en route to New York… but doesn’t land until five and a half years later. As the people from the missing-then-found flight return to society, the mystery of what actually happened to them only deepens.

Netflix subscribers hungrily descended on Manifest when the show’s first two seasons arrived for streaming in June. It debuted in the service’s daily “Top 10” at #2 before quickly jumping to #1, and then it hung on in that spot for 27 straight days. That run was enough to make Manifest the second-most enduring “Top 10” view at #1, in a tie with Tiger King, according to TV Line. Only Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia lasted longer, at 29 days.
