Before we get into everything else you need to know, here’s what you can expect from the new season:
“Two years after the brutal murder of Grace turned their lives upside down, the Stone family is in shambles as a devastated Ben continues to mourn his wife and search for his kidnapped daughter, Eden.
Consumed by his grief, Ben has stepped down from his role as co-captain of the lifeboat, leaving Michaela to captain it alone, a near impossible feat with the passengers’ every move now being monitored by a government registry.
As the Death Date draws closer and the passengers grow desperate for a path to survival, a mysterious passenger arrives with a package for Cal that changes everything they know about Flight 828 and will prove to be the key to unlocking the secret of the Callings in this compelling, mind-bending, and deeply emotional journey.”
Before we look to the future, let’s look at the road to Manifest season 4 on Netflix.
Manifest’s story began in 2018 when Flight 828 took off in the pilot episode on NBC. The series gripped viewers being the 9th top-rated show on NBC that season. NBC ordered a second and a third season however, viewership had dropped substantially over time.
Season 1 reportedly had 12.61 million viewers on average, dropping by over half when season 3 began airing.
In the summer of 2021, the writing was on the wall for Manifest; this is where the timeline with Netflix begins.
NBC canceled the show shortly after Manifest’s season 3 finale aired on June 10th, 2021. In a likely last effort ditch to give the show some more exposure, Warner Brothers Television (who is the main owner of the show) licensed seasons 1-2 to Netflix on June 10th, 2021 as we first reported.

Once the show’s first two seasons dropped on Netflix in both the United States and Canada, the show took off. Netflix’s top 10s were the first early indication that the show resonated with dominating the lists for weeks.
As of September 17th, 2021, the show has placed in the US top 10s for 94 days and 78 days in Canada.
Many articles sprung up about how Manifest was the biggest show in the US for the summer (although that’s been disputed) it was enough to get the ball rolling on conversations for a revival.
Since the revival of the show, Netflix has revealed that between June 27th and September 12th, seasons 1-3 was watched at least 214,520,000 million hours just in the United States and Canada.
After weeks and months of back and forth (and plenty of insider notes that talks were ongoing courtesy of Deadline) a deal was eventually struck and a supersized final season was announced on August 28th, 2021.
The third season was added to Netflix US on August 21st, 2021 with Canada shortly following afterwards.
An in-depth piece from The Hollywood Reporter provides more context surrounding the cancelation and renewal and revealed that 25 million had checked out the show on Netflix within 28 days.
When looking at renewal, some of the key sticking points for Netflix were picking up the global rights and making sure the cast could come back with the majority of the cast’s contracts had expired.
That’s where we move into what we know so far about season 4 of Manifest.
One of the big issues surrounding renewal as we stated above was getting the cast on board.
In an interview with AllYourScreens ahead of the Netflix renewal, Jeff Rake when asked about the 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 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.”

Josh Dallas, J.R. Ramirez, and Melissa Roxburgh were the first two cast members to be confirmed to return.
On September 9th, Parveen Kaur, Luna Blaise, and Holly Taylor were confirmed to return. In addition, Ty Doran was promoted to season regular.
On September 10th, it was reported that Daryl Edwards who plays NSA director Robert Vance was promoted to series regular.
The key departure for the show thus far has been Jack Messina, who played the role of Cal. That’s despite the fact it was reported that Cal was negotiating to return.
Although Matt Long originally had a scheduling conflict because of his appearance in a new NBC pilot, Getaway. TVLine reported that Matt Long will be in the fourth season, with Jeff Rake telling the outlet him returning will allow “Zeke to complete his Manifest journey just as originally intended.”
Alexis Suarez will return to play the role of Alonzo. Ben Livingston will return as Kenneth Meyer.
Some of the new smaller members you’ll see in season 4 include:
In late April 2022, the RenewManifest Twitter handle shared several picks of the “Eden Twins,” which will feature in season 4.
I guess the secret is out now! 🤫

Thanks to numerous casting grids, we can confirm several new characters that will feature in season 4.

No episode titles have been revealed just yet although we did get a first look at the “Blue Revision” of episode 401 which was shared with the infamous glasses known to long-time fans of the show.

Erica Watson, who has worked on Snowpiercer, Krypton, The L Word: Generation Q, and Power Book II: Ghost is set to make her directorial debut on Manifest this season.
One question you may have is why Netflix is renewing the show simply only to give it a single season (which could be construed as Netflix simply renewing and instantly canceling).
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 get the show relatively close.
Manifest Season 4 Part 1 is coming to Netflix on November 4th, 2022, although it’s unclear if all regions will have the show’s new season available all at once. 
The reason is that not all regions currently have access to seasons 1-3 of the show.
Since last summer, we’ve seen the show slowly roll out across a bunch of new regions, including a big batch that received Manifest on January 1st, 2022, including:
More Netflix regions received seasons 1-3 of Manifest on July 1st, 2022. Those included:
Current production status: Filming (Last updated: November 2021)
The series’ fourth season has filmed in two halves (reflecting the two halves on Netflix).
Shortly after its renewal at Netflix, Jeff Rake told EW regarding production:
“I’m hopeful that cameras are rolling in November or December latest. We’re 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, but it’s going to be worth the wait.”
In early October 2021, we got word that production was scheduled to begin in November 2021. It’ll be filmed entirely in New York again, with much of the production taking place at Silver Cup Studios.
Pre-production started in October 2021 with Empire State Grips posting that they were beginning to prepare for filming with an Instagram post with the caption “We are doing a thing again.”

On November 18th, Jeff Rake released the first picture from the Manifest set and confirmed that the show was back in production.

Filming took a short break over Christmas and is expected to run throughout much of 2022. According to a report from SBJCT (h/t NetflixLife), filming is largely expected to wrap in late 2022, with Ginnifer Goodwin saying:
“I adore Manifest, but I’m ready for my husband to come home from NYC. He’ll wrap the series in late 2022 and we are craving a vacation.”
According to Variety Insight, filming is tentatively set to wrap on September 20th, 2022 but given the length of production, that’s certainly subject to change.
On January 30th, 2022, Jeff Rake was asked to provide an update on filming and the fourth season where he replied:
“Picking up the pieces. Forging ahead. The clock ticking.”
In April 2022, Holly Taylor, who plays Angelina, confirmed on Instagram that the first half of the final season had wrapped.
“First half of the final season of Manifest is in the can. Now, a little break before we wrap it up. Enjoy it Manifam.”
Thanks to many behind-the-scenes teases from both cast and crew, we’re able to compile some of our favorite released so far:
