Going into the fourth and final season of Manifest on Netflix, fans will have a laundry list of questions, especially after THAT season 3 finale. Most of the questions for Manifest season 4 have to do with what happened to Flight 828, but Manifesters also want to know if Athena Karkanis will be back as Grace Stone.

Unfortunately, good news about Athena Karkanis’ presence in Manifest season 4 has yet to be announced, but fans can rest easy knowing most of the main cast will be back for the 20 final episodes of the new Netflix original series.

Josh Dallas, Melissa Roxburgh and J.R. Ramirez have been locked since the series was saved on 828 day, and fellow series regulars Parveen Kaur, Luna Blaise and Holly Taylor have each closed new deals to return for season 4. Likewise, Daryl Edwards and Ty Doran have been promoted to the main cast.

The most glaring absences from the season 4 main cast so far are Matt Long and Athena Karkanis, but we know what the deal is with Long. So, can we expect to see Karkanis back in her role as Grace? Here’s what we know so far. (Warning: Spoilers ahead!)

Is Athena Karkanis in Manifest season 4?

While we’re cautiously optimistic that Karkanis will be back in some form or another in the final season, Deadline’s latest report about the cast notes that she will no longer be a series regular. Of course, that’s anticipated since Grace was killed in the season 3 finale.

Even though we know death doesn’t always stick in Manifest, Grace’s seems to be one of the rare deaths with finality in the world of Flight 828. Perhaps Jeff Rake and the writers have some tricks up their sleeves for Manifest season 4, but right now, don’t get your hopes up too high.

Nevertheless, let’s still keep those fingers crossed that this isn’t the last time we’ve seen Grace, and that she will return in a flashback or as a figment of someone’s imagination… anything. We need to see Grace honored at some point in the final season.
