‘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’. The show has been on the Top 10 list of Netflix for quite some time now. Jeff Rake said about the show:
There is something very meta about the show’s death and rebirth, given that that’s the story of the series itself,
‘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 in that flight. The passengers started to experience voices and visions of events yet to occur.
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
As mentioned above, Manifest Season 4 started filming in November 2021. The filming is still ongoing. So we can’t expect the fourth season any time soon. Most likely it will release at the end of the year. Manifest Season 4 will consist of 20 episodes. The upcoming season will be divided into two parts. Moreover, this season will be the last of Manifest. Netflix was offered three options to conclude the show, “A two-hour movie, a six-episode limited series or full season.”
I’m hopeful that cameras are rolling in November or December latest. We’re going to work as fast as we can while still keeping an eye on quality control, because we want to get episodes to everyone as soon as possible. We also want them to be excellent. It might take a minute for a brand-new batch of episodes to show up in people’s homes, but it’s going to be worth the wait.
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.
Josh Dallas, who plays Ben, said “Things are gonna be a little….different”. Rake said about the upcoming season:
The endgame won’t change at all…I am absolutely confident that 20 episodes gives me enough time to tell the entirety of the story as I always intended to.
Creator Rake was asked about Ben’s character in season 4. He said:
A Season 4 of Manifest for Ben is absolutely centered around processing, digesting, coming to emotional terms with such an unspeakable loss, and then trying to find a way to seek vengeance, to kind of justify the act in terms of finding some meaning out of it.
Moreover, as the show is going to conclude in those 20 episodes. A time-jump is going to happen in Manifest Season 4. That means the “death date” of the passengers is a lot closer in the upcoming season.
Who is going to die in Manifest Season 4?
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 so we can expect that someone is going to die. Zeke survived his death date. However, things are not the same for passengers as those were for Zeke.
In season 3, cal disappeared after touching the recovered tail-fin of the plane. However, he reappeared at the end of the season ‘all-grownup’. Moreover, at the end of the season. We saw Angelina murder Grace. However, we can expect a twist, and Grace might be alive. Vance was also presumed to be dead but turns out he faked his own death.
Is ben going to die in season 4, or is it Cal? or maybe everyone who is alive will be able to avoid the death date. Manifest Season 4 will uncover all the questions we have in our mind right now.
