Manifest’ started airing back in 2018 on NBC. The series was the 9th top-rated show on NBC. However, after NBC ordered season 2 and season 3 of the show, viewership dropped. NBC ended up canceling the show on June 10th, 2021. As soon as the show was canceled, Netflix acquired the license to ‘Manifest’.
‘Manifest’ follows the story of a plane “Flight 828” that disappeared and reappeared after five years. The passengers were presumed dead. However, upon landing after five years, things were not the same for 191 passengers that were onboard that flight. The passengers started to experience voices and visions of events yet to occur. Jeff Rake said:
There is something very meta about the show’s death and rebirth, given that that’s the story of the series itself,
There are three seasons of ‘Manifest’ on Netflix. The show is renewed for a fourth season. Netflix ‘Manifest’ Season 4 started filming in November 2021.
Manifest Season 4 Release Date
Manifest Season 4 is set two years after the murder of Grace. There were rumors all over the internet that there will be a special announcement regarding the trailer and release date of Manifest Season 4 on 28th August. The teaser along with the release date was released a while ago. Manifest Season 4 is divided into two parts. Part 1 will air on November 4, 2022. According to Netflix’s official synopsis:
Two years after the brutal murder of Grace turned their lives upside down, the Stone family is in shambles as a devastated Ben continues to mourn his wife and search for his kidnapped daughter, Eden. Consumed by his grief, Ben has stepped down from his role as co-captain of the lifeboat, leaving Michaela to captain it alone, a near impossible feat with the passengers’ every move now being monitored by a government registry. As the Death Date draws closer and the passengers grow desperate for a path to survival, a mysterious passenger arrives with a package for Cal that changes everything they know about Flight 828 and will prove to be the key to unlocking the secret of the Callings in this compelling, mind-bending, and deeply emotional journey.
Josh Dallas, who plays Ben, said “Things are gonna be a little….different”. Manifest Season 3 ended on a cliffhanger. Grace was murdered by Angelina, a fellow 828 passenger. Cal vanished after touching the tailfin of flight 828. He reappeared five years older at the end of the season. The death date of passengers of Flight 828 will be a lot closer in the upcoming season. The show is going to conclude as Manifest Season 4 is going to be final.
As the show was canceled by NBC, the cast was no longer bound to return to the show for the last season. However, most of the cast members have already signed up to return for the fourth season. Josh Dallas, J.R. Ramirez, and Melissa Roxburgh will be returning to reprise their role. Daryl Edwards will also return to play Vance’s role. Kyle Boyd will also be joining Manifest Season 4. Parveen Kaur, Luna Blaise, and Holly Taylor also signed up to return.
According to Deadline, Jack Messina, who portrayed Cal, will no longer be returning to the show.
