Manifest Season 4: Will There Be Another Season for the Mysteries of Flight 828?

Since the third season of Manifest ended in June 2021, viewers have been left with a lot of mysteries as well as some very deep-thorned drama in the series finale. However, immediately after the third season finished, NBC confirmed that the show would not be renewed for a Manifest season 4.

The show’s die-hard admirers were so outraged that they started an internet poll to put it again. Whenever the network revealed that Manifest Season 4 had been renewed as a final season, something that rarely occurs in TV series happened.

The film Manifest chronicles the story of Flight 828, a commercial airliner that mysteriously vanished a few hours into its voyage and then returned more than five hours later with all its crew and passengers, who had also been assumed dead. The leap in time is reflected by mild disturbance for everyone on the plane.

Everyone immediately notices that a lot has altered even though they’ve been gone as soon as we return to their normal lifestyles. Even worse, the crew and passengers who have recovered continue to understand voices in their thoughts and have visions of the future of events that have not yet occurred.

So, what can we expect from this unexpected show?

The show hosted a presentation at San Diego Comic-Con in San Diego, California on July 21, 2018. Stars Melissa Roxburgh and Josh Dallas, as well as executive producer Jeff Rake, were in attendance.

The very first nine minutes of the very first episode were aired on different digital sources on August 28, 2018. On September 10, 2018, the series was featured in the 12th Annual PaleyFest Fall Tv Previews, which included a sneak peek of the show.

Netflix confirmed in August 2021 that now the Manifest season 4 aka the final season of the series will be broadcast on their platform, owing to its outstanding results on Netflix plus fans’ internet petitions to save the series. Season 4 will have 20 episodes, but they will not be released altogether on the same streaming platform.

It would instead be divided into multiple parts. Jeff Rake is looking for November 2022 as the publication date, so nothing is set in stone yet. The Manifest season 4 “hiatus is almost over,” Luna Blaise tweeted on May 23, implying that we’ll be seeing at least a small part of season 4 this year.

Manifest Season 4: What’s the Storyline of the Series?

Manifest’s season 3 finale has multiple cliffhangers that will have a major impact on the storyline in the final season.

The first one was Jared’s knowledge of Saanvi including her role in the death of Sarah’s mother, The Major. After killing Eden, Angelina was seen fleeing with Grace. Randall and Eagan both were arrested and brought away at the same time. Cal, meanwhile, vanished without a trace after hitting the tail of Flight 828.

There was also Captain Daly’s abrupt arrival and disappearance. “Whether that’s purgatory, whether that be the netherworld, these are notions that Ben and the others will find it hard to understand,” showrunner Jeff Rake told TV Insider while questioned regarding Captain Daly.

He goes on to say, “Let’s put it this way: for the past five and a half years, Captain Daly seems to have been precisely where the passenger as a whole has been. Captain Daly has already been exactly wherever Cal would be from the conclusion on Episode 312 where he vanishes through the very end of the previous season finale when he reappears. When we return in season four, I’ll let Cal speak about what that place is.”

The fourth season will delve into the implications of all of these tales, as well as much more. Despite not getting the six seasons that he had hoped for, Rake is pleased with where the program is at.

He goes on to tell EW, “The endgame won’t change at all. I am absolutely confident that 20 episodes give me enough time to tell the entirety of the story as I always intended to.”

“I told Jeff from the beginning, before I even signed on, that I didn’t want to know,” Josh Dallas earlier informed Collider about the story’s development as the series went on. “I didn’t want to know what the riddle was just because I wanted to figure it out with Ben and the rest of the audience as we went.”

“Because we’re a few episodes forward in the series, I’m a bit ahead of you, but I’m still learning it as I get each screenplay, which really is part of the fun. I don’t think it’s always necessary, but I didn’t want to know anything for this project, and I didn’t want to know anything for myself. Along with the rest of you, I’m going to receive the WTF and OMG moments.”

Who Will Be Seen in the Series Again?

The series’ protagonists Melissa Roxburgh, who portrays Michaela Stone, plus Josh Dallas, who represents Ben Stone, have signed new contracts for the final season, with J.R. Ramirez likely to join them.

Matt Long, who plays Zeke Landon, is still negotiating a contract with Parveen Kaur, Jack Messina, as well as Luna Blaise, who portrays Olive Stone. Long’s status on the series is now uncertain due to a probable scheduling conflict with his work on the NBC thriller Getaway.

Perry Strong plays Captain Kevin Fahey, Breton Tyner-Bryan in the role of an unnamed cop, Sabastian Betts as the 828 Officer, Aaron Smallwood Jr. in the role of Registry Uniformed Officer, plus NaTonia Monét in the role of Detective Price are among the newcomers.


As the season is yet to be released, we don’t have any information about the trailer of Manifest Season 4, but the creators has dropped a first-look video of the final season. So let’s enjoy that.
