Manifest season 4 is officially happening at Netflix! Fans of the drama series had been keeping a close eye ever since its cancellation to see which streamer could potentially save the day and bring it back to life, and our favorite platform is fortunately the one to do it!
Manifest was added to Netflix in June 2021, right before the Manifest season 3 finale aired on NBC. The show was one of the top shows and movies on Netflix for at least two months.
By the time Netflix fans binged season 3, everyone was desperate to find out if season 4 would ever happen. If you’ve seen the social media push for someone to save the show, you’ll know that this fanbase is super dedicated and there’s certainly an audience for another installment. So, below you can find out everything we know about Manifest season 4 right now.
How many seasons of Manifest are there?
So far, there are three seasons of Manifest. The first season premiered on NBC in 2018. The season 3 finale aired on NBC on June 10, 2021. All three seasons of Manifest are available to stream on Netflix.
Will there be a season 4 of Manifest?
As of August 28, 2021, Manifest season 4 is officially in the works! The day has been dubbed “828 Day” by fans because of Flight 828 in the series. We were hoping Netflix would deliver good news to commemorate the day, and we were right! Per a press release sent out on 828 Day, another season is happening and it will mark the show’s last.
In case you aren’t up to date with the show’s history, Manifest was canceled after three seasons. That was announced in June 2021 after the season 3 finale aired.
In July, we learned that Netflix and NBC were back in talks with Warner Bros. TV to save Manifest and bring back the series for season 4, according to a report from Deadline. By August, Netflix was officially in talks with the writers and cast to bring back, save the show, and order Manifest season 4, per another report from Deadline.
It didn’t take long for Netflix to announce that it had officially saved Manifest. This is the most excited I’ve been for a show the platform revived since Lucifer and Cobra Kai.
Manifest season 4 episode count
Also announced on 828 Day was that Manifest season 4 will be 20 episodes long, which is much longer than other titles on the platform. Netflix usually sticks to 8-10 episodes per season. According to the press release, the final season will be “presented in parts to be determined,” meaning it will likely be broken up into two or more parts.
We’re not sure why Netflix decided to present the final 20 episodes of Manifest this way instead of doing two more seasons, but we’re just happy we’re getting more content at all!
When is Manifest season 4 filming?
Filming on season 4 of Manifest began in Nov. 2021 in New York. The cast and crew got back to work at Silvercup Studios, and stars such as Melissa Roxburgh and Josh Dallas didn’t hesitate to give us some behind-the-scenes shots and filming hints.
Dallas’ wife Ginnifer Goodwin teased that Manifest season 4 would wrap sometime in late 2022, but that hasn’t been confirmed by Netflix.
Writing on season 4 began almost immediately after it was saved, as announced by creator Jeff Rake and the writing team. Because they were able to get an early start on the final season, the cast and crew were able to move right into production in late 2021.
Manifest season 4 cast
Check out the official cast list for Manifest season 4:
- Melissa Roxburgh as Michaela Stone
- Josh Dallas as Ben Stone
- J. R. Ramirez as Jared Vasquez
- Luna Blaise as Olive Stone
- Parveen Kaur as Saanvi Bahl
- Matt Long as Zeke Landon
- Holly Taylor as Angelina Meyer
- Ty Doran as Cal Stone
- Daryl Edwards as Robert Vancev
In Nov. 2021, it was confirmed that Matt Long would return for season 4 as a series regular.
Will Grace be in season 4 of Manifest? That’s a major question Manifesters are asking going into the upcoming final season on Netflix, but we should prepare for disappointment. As the main cast locked in new deals to appear in the new season on Netflix, some cast members were promoted to series regulars while others unfortunately will be leaving the show.
Manifest season 4 synopsis
Without giving away spoilers from the exciting Manifest season 3 finale, the fourth season will continue to put the pieces together for the endgame. A major character returned, a major character faced tragedy, and the 828s learned new information that could help solve the mystery.
As the death date draws nearer for the Flight 828 passengers, it’s a race against the clock for Ben, Michaela, Saanvi, and the whole team to figure out what happened to them, where they went, and how to save themselves from the time on their second chance running out.
Josh Dallas spoke about season 4 in Dec. 2021, giving us a tease for what we can expect from his character Ben. “To be honest… he’s not in a great place,” the actor said. Get the tissues ready for the new season!
Does Manifest season 4 have a release date?
Technically, Manifest season 4 does not have a release date. Netflix has not come out and confirmed that, however, series creator Jeff Rake spilled the beans on Twitter in Feb. 2022. While replying to a tweet from author Stephen King, Rake revealed Manifest should be returning in Nov. 2022. That’s huge news to share so casually, but fans are so excited that he did!
Of course, November is simply an estimate because Netflix has not confirmed or denied. We’ll have to wait for an official announcement regarding the release date. But for now, we’re happy to think Manifest could be returning this fall.
Stay tuned for more Manifest news and updates from Netflix Life!
