Manifest (Season 4): Cast
The big problem based on the renewal was getting the cast onboarding. In a current interview with AllYourScreens before Netflix’s renewal, Jeff Rake while asked about the contracts of the cast 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 it for a couple of more weeks. And then we got to a point where no one was immediately stepping up, and at this point, those contracts have expired.
So right now, those actors are out there as free agents. So that’s just one more hurdle we would have to overcome should we find our partner to continue producing the show.”
It is reported that Josh Dallas, J.R. Ramirez, and Melissa Roxburgh had been two of the first cast members to become confirmed to return. On 9th September, it was reported that Parveen Kaur, Luna Blaise, and Holly Taylor had been established to replace.
