‘Manifest’ Season 4: Release Date, Cast, Plot & Everything

-

Manifest is officially on for its fourth and final season after Netflix saved it from NBC’s cancelation. Let’s tell you all you need to know about it.

Since Manifest wrapped up its third season in June 2021, the show left viewers with questions and some nail-biting drama in the season finale. But shortly after season three ended, NBC announced that they wouldn’t be renewing the series for a fourth season. The uproar by the show’s die-hard fans led them to start an online petition to bring it back. And something that rarely happens to TV shows happened to Manifest when the network announced that they renewed it for one last season.

In a nutshell, Manifest tells the story of a commercial airliner, Flight 828, which went missing a few hours into its journey and reappeared with all the crew and passengers more than five later after they were presumed dead. For all the people in the aircraft, the jump in time was represented by some turbulence. As soon as they step back into their regular lives, they all realize that a lot has changed since they’ve been gone. What makes things even weirder is that the returned passengers and crew begin to hear voices in the head and have premonitions about events that haven’t even happened.

Through its three seasons, Manifest managed to keep its audiences hooked on to its show with all the drama, twists, and turns. And now that the fourth season is officially on its way, let’s find out everything about it.

Season 4 Plot:

The season 3 finale of Manifest had several cliffhangers that will have a significant impact on the storyline in the final season.

First was Jared (J.R. Ramirez) knowing about Saanvi (Parveen Kaur) and her involvement in the death of The Major (Elizabeth Marvel), Sarah’s (Lauren Norvelle) mother. We also saw Angelina (Holly Taylor) run off with Grace (Athena Karkanis) after killing Eden. At the same time, both Randall (Christopher Piccione) and Eagan (Ali Lopez-Sohail) were arrested and taken away. Meanwhile, Cal (Jack Messina) disappeared into thin air after touching Flight 828’s tail.

There was also the sudden reappearance and disappearance of Captain Daly (Frank Deal). When asked about Captain Daly, show creator Jeff Rake told TV Insider, “Whether it’s purgatory, whether it’s the netherworld, these are terms and concepts that Ben and others will struggle to understand.” He continues, “Let’s put it this way: Captain Daly has been exactly where the passengers as a group were for those five and a half years. Captain Daly has been exactly where Cal was from the end of Episode 312 when he disappears to when he returns right there at the very end of the season finale. What that place is, I’m going let Cal speak to that when we come back in season four.”

The final season will explore the ramifications of all these stories and much more. Rake still feels good about where the show stands, despite not securing the six seasons he originally envisioned. “The endgame won’t change at all,” he goes on to tell EW. “I am absolutely confident that 20 episodes give me enough time to tell the entirety of the story as I always intended to.”

Cast: 

Series leads Melissa Roxburgh, who plays Michaela Stone, and Josh Dallas, who plays Ben Stone, have closed deals for the final season and are expected to be joined by J.R. Ramirez. Parveen Kaur, Jack Messina, and Luna Blaise, who plays Olive Stone, are still in contract negotiations, and Matt Long, who plays Zeke Landon. Long’s future on the show is currently up in the air because of a potential schedule clash as he is currently working on NBC drama Getaway. “I will be back for some of it. We’re just trying to find out the maximum I can do,” Long said.

He continued, “I love the character in the show so much, but as you know when the show was canceled, I booked another show. It was a pilot. We don’t know what’s happening with it yet. It’s also a really awesome project. So we’re just trying to work out schedules. Everybody wants the best thing for everyone, so fingers crossed it all works out for the best.”

Expected Release:

Thanks to its stellar performance on Netflix and the fans’ online petitions to save the show, Netflix announced back in August 2021 that the fourth and final season of Manifest will stream on their platform. The fourth season will consist of 20 episodes but will not be dropped on the streaming service all at once. Instead, it will be split into two or more parts. As far as the release date goes, Jeff Rake is aiming for November 2022, but nothing is official yet.
