In the cruelest of ironies, the Netflix series with the highest completion rate was canceled on network TV before being saved by the streamer

Netflix won't save its own canceled shows, but it will show lenience to somebody else's.

As has been made abundantly clear, Netflix has no interest in salvaging its own canceled shows from the scrapheap, but it is willing to take a chance on somebody else’s, with Manifest proving to be as much of a beneficiary as Lucifer once the streaming service decided to come calling.

Having rewarded patient fans with a bumper fourth and final season, the fantasy drama was allowed to draw to a conclusion that left the majority of fans – which includes legendary author Stephen King – satisfied with how the story was wrapped up.

It would also appear that subscribers remained dedicated to Manifest from beginning to end, after new data named it as one of the platform’s in-house originals with the highest completion rate. According to PlumResearch (via What’s on Netflix), 73.1 percent of viewers who watched the first episode of the fourth season remained true to the cause until the final installment, putting it level with Ginny & Georgia at the head of the pack.

The completion rate is one of the many metrics Netflix uses to determine which projects sink or swim, so it’s cruelly ironic that the one leading the charge wasn’t just canceled by NBC before being rescued from oblivion, but it was also the final run of episodes that didn’t leave the door open for a return or continuation of any kind.

Your favorites might be biting the dust at an alarmingly rapid rate, so maybe stick with it until the finale if you want to do your part in ensuring something you’ve grown attached to lives to fight another day.
