The story of Manifest started in 2018 while Flight 828 took off into the pilot episode on NBC. This series has been gripping the viewers to be the 9th top-rated series on NBC. NBC also ordered the second and the third season however that the viewership had revealed substantially.
It seems that season 1 reportedly had collect6ed 12.61 million viewers with an average that dropped on over half by the time season 3 started airing.
In summer 2021, the writing had on the wall for Manifest and this is also where the timeline with Netflix starts.
NBC recently cancelled the show shortly after season 3 of Manifest finale aired on 10th June 2021. According to the last effort ditch to provide the show with some with more exposure, Warner Brothers Television was licensed seasons 1-2 on Netflix on 10th June 2021.
After dropping the first two seasons on Netflix in both US and Canada, it has been taken off. The top 10s of Netflix had the first early indication with the show that had been resonating with the app[earing in the top 10s for the weeks.
According to the report of 17th September 2021, this show has been placed in the US top 10s for 94 days and 78 days in Canada.
There are also many articles rotated about the Manifest had the bi8ggesty show in the US for the summer and it also had the enough for getting the ball has been rolled on to the conversation of the revival.
From the revival of the series, Netflix has exposed 27th June and 12th September seasons 1-3 that also have been watched at least 214,520,000 million hours just in US and Canada. After returning for weeks and months there is a deal had eventually stuck and also has been such a giant final season had been declared on 28th August 2021.
It seems that the third season was added to Netflix on 21st August 20921 with Canada shortly. The Hollywood Reporter’s in-depth piece provides many contexts surrounding the cancellation and also about the renewal and exposed that 25 million had been checked out the show on Netflix just within 28 days.
In this, some key sticking points were picked up on the global rights and making sure that the cast could be returned with the major with the cast’s contracts had been expired.
Manifest (Season 4): All Details
We will just go back to those announcements days on 28th August that the series has been revived with a bunch of such key details revealed.
- Season 4 will fill with 20 episodes however will release 2 or more parts
- The first part will come on Netflix in late 2022.
- Netflix has set to release the fourth season globally.
- Netflix also will get the global rights with the previous rights with three seasons along with the roll out slowly around the world.
- Hulu and Peacock will lose the show in late September 2021
- Manifest Season 4 is the final season
- Jeff Rake also will continue his show running duties with the final season.
- The executive producers for the new season contain Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rake, Jacqueline Levine, and Len Goldstein.
- It seems that Warner Brothers TV, Compari Entertainment, Netflix Productions, and Universal Television as the production companies behind the series.
It seems that in the Hollywood Reporter article, Jeff Rake provided us an indication of what they can expect from season 4 referring to the final 20 episodes as “incredibly visual”.
There are some that have been speculated that we could experience a time group in season 4. It also could make sense provided that the series will eventually be coinciding with the death date in 2024.
It also could be referring to the bump in the budget the series likes getting for season 4. According to Puck News, the budget for each episode is enhanced by a million each from $4 to $5 million.
Rake said, “ I walked through a bunch of twists and turns, I’ve always had a bunch of big flags in the sand- things that would happen along the way. But the excellent news is that they are now going to be able to see them all [play out in real-time because the 20 episodes that I have been gifted allows me to take the entire roadmap that I already had planned out in front of me and overlay that over these 20 episodes. Fundamentally, I’m going to be able to continue telling the story that I was always going to tell.”
Manifest (Season 4): Cast Members
There are also such big issues surrounding the renewal as we have stated above was getting the cast on board.
In an interview with AllYourScreens before the Netflix renewal, Jeff Rake when asked about the cast members cast contracts said: ” In the weeks following the cancellation, the studio asked for the actors for a several week extension so they could shop around and see whether anyone wanted to pick up the show. And all of the actors were kind enough to do for a couple of more weeks. And then we got to a point where no one w3as immediately stepping up, and at this point, those contracts have expired.
So right now, those actors are out here as free agents. So that’s just one more hurdle we would have to overcome producing the show.”
It seems Josh Dallas, J.R. Ramirez, and Melissa Rexburg had the first two cast members had been confirmed for return. On 9th September, Parveen Kaur, Luna Blaise, and Holly Taylor had been confirmed to come back. Additionally, Ty Doran had been promoted to season regular.
On 10th September and it was also reported that Daryl Edwards who plays NSA director Robert Vance also has been promoted to regular series.
There is a key departure for the show thus also has been Jack Messina who also played the role of Cal. It is despite the fact and also it had been reported that Cal had to negotiate.
It seems that Matt Long mainly has the scheduling conflict due to the appearance in a new NBC pilot, Getaway TVLine reported that Matt Long also will be into the fourth season with Jeff Rake also telling the outlet coming and allow “Zeke to complete his Manifest journey just as originally intended.”
Manifest (Season 4): New Characters
It seems there are also such new castings gridding that we can confirm with a number of the new characters and also feature season 4.
Henry Kim: He is an Asian male between the ages of 50-80 years of age. It seems that the character must be approved frail and thin and also speak English with such a noticeable accent. It seems that the character also was one of the passengers of flight 828 who will come to Singapore where he also has been detained to Singapore as he is detained after miraculously coming. He also undergoes such the military tribunal due to the fear and suspicion of passengers aiding
Kyle Boyd: There is another passenger on Flight 828. It is also from the Indigenous fro]m the Hopi Tribe and white.

Episode 401 – TBD – Jeff Rake and Simran Baidwan and also directed by Romeo Tirone.
Manifest (Season 4): The Last and Final Season
Now the main question is why Netflix is set to renew the show as simply for only giving it a single season. As it seemed according to the aforementioned Hollywood Reporter article Jeff Rake “presented Netflix executives with three different options to wrap up the show” which were “A two-hour movie a six-episode limited series or full season.”
Many will know Jeff Rake originally planned the show to run for 6 seasons and Netflix’s expanded season will getting g the show relatively close.

It also will be in relation while the rights to seasons1-3 become available to Netflix. There are also some regions that were reported to get the show by the end of 2021.

This series has been renewed in August 2021 in the writers’ room has also been hard at work to prep scripts. Jeff Rake told EW:
“I’m hopeful that cameras are rolling in November or December latest. We are going to work as fast as we can while still keeping an eye on quality control because we want to get episodes to everyone as soon as possible. We also want them to be excellent. It might take a minute for a brand new batch of episodes to show up in people’s homes and it is also going to be the worth wait.”
In early October 2021, we also got word that production was scheduled to start in November 2021. It will be filmed completely in New York again with much of the production taking place at Silver Cup Studios.;
It seems that the pre-production started in October 2021 with Empire State Grips posting that they had been beginning to get prepared for filming with an Instagram post with the caption “We are doing a thing again.”
On 18th November, there is the first picture from the set of Manifest was dropped by Jeff Rake who also confirmed that the show had been returned.
It seems that the filming also took a short break for Christmas and also has been expected to run along much of 2022. According to the report from SBJCT and also shooting largely expected to wrap in late 2021 with Gibbifer Goodwin saying:
“I adore Manifest, but I’m ready for my husband to come home from NYC. He will wrap the series in late 2022 and we are craving a vacation.”
It seems that on 30th January 2022, Jeff Rake was asked to provide an update on filming and the fourth season as he replied:
“Picking up the pieces. Forging ahead. The clock ticking.”
