If you’re anything like us, you’re still flying high on cloud nine since Netflix announced Manifest was saved for a fourth and final season. Nothing can beat the satisfaction of fighting for a canceled series to be saved and then watching Manifest season 4 come to fruition.

Since getting the axe from NBC after three seasons, Manifest enjoyed quite the cinderella story as it defied the odds and became the biggest series on Netflix once the first two seasons started streaming. Those billions of viewing minutes were just too powerful for Netflix to ignore.

Even though Manifest season 4 has been confirmed to hit Netflix sometime next year with 20 closure-filled episodes, there are still plenty of details to figure out before we can start binge-watching the last chapter of the mysterious Flight 828 story on Netflix.

Namely, much of the Manifest cast still needs to ink new deals to return for the final 20 episodes, but that shouldn’t cause concern among the devoted Manifesters. Don’t worry, we’re keeping track of all the main cast members who have boarded and still need to board season 4.

Manifest season 4 cast

When the news broke that Netflix had rescued Manifest, Deadline was the first to report that the series leads Josh Dallas and Melissa Roxburgh had secured new deals (as well as pay raises) to headline the final season on Netflix.

While chatting with Entertainment Weekly about Netflix saving Manifest, creator Jeff Rake expressed his hopefulness that everyone would reprise their roles.

"“We haven’t finished those conversations yet. I am hopeful that everybody is back. As you and I are talking right now, negotiations continue. I’m cautiously optimistic that all of our favorite characters will be returning to the story.”"

In the same Deadline report, J. R. Ramirez looks to be locked in to return as Michaela’s ex Jared, while Parveen Kaur (Saanvi), Luna Blaise (Olive), Jack Messina (Cal) and Matt Long (Zeke) remain in talks for new deals as series regulars.

It’s worth noting that Matt Long has joined the NBC pilot Getaway as a series regular, but his one-year deal on the potential series isn’t expected to impact his work on the final season of Manifest as long as both shows can work out scheduling.

Recurring players such as Daryl Edwards, Holly Taylor, Ellen Tamaki and others should also make return appearances in season 4, but we may or may not see Athena Karkanis back as Grace pending the aftermath of the shocking season 3 finale ending. But we should also see a different version of a certain character back in the final season. (No spoilers!)
