After weeks of back-and-forth, Netflix has announced that Manifest will be returning for a fourth season. The news came just days after it was canceled by NBC and two months since the series ended on an emotional high note.
The show had been garnering media attention for weeks after its first two seasons dropped on Netflix, and once Manifest finally aired in the US it became a culturally relevant hit. The top 10s were met with praise from viewers as well.
When Netflix decided to renewed Manifest for a fourth chapter, only two months after it hit the platform. The show quickly surpassed expectations and became Netflix’s most-watched piece of content for 27 days. The Netflix show, Manifest was just the third in history to make it into their Top 10 list for one hundred days.
Manifest Season 4 Release Date
The renewal was unexpected and hasn’t been confirmed yet so production on the next chapter needs to start right away-writing, filming, etc. According to Netflix Life, we won’t see the Manifest Season 4 until Spring 2022.
Creator Rake said to EW: “I’m hopeful that cameras are rolling in November or December  latest… 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.”
Manifest Season 4 will be released in two halves and doesn’t drop on Netflix globally all at once. Netflix will debut the new Manifest season 4 first in the US and Canada, with any other regions that pick up three seasons this year.
Manifest Season 4 Cast
For many of the cast members, their time on this show was coming to an end. Luckily they signed up in September when it was renewed regardless- except for two characters who died at the end of season three and one that unexpectedly aged (no spoilers!). Daryl Edwards has been promoted from the recurring status as a result; he plays Vance now.
Josh Dallas, J.R. Ramirez, and Melissa Roxburgh were the first two cast members to be confirmed for Manifest’s fourth season.
The show’s first two cast members are confirmed for Season 4. Josh Dallas and J.R Ramirez will be returning alongside Melissa Roxburgh in the upcoming installment.
What’s Coming in Season 4
Creator Rake has taken on a challenge that he knows will be difficult. It’s been reported in the EW interview: “The endgame won’t change at all…I am absolutely confident that 20 episodes give me enough time to tell the entirety of the story as I always intended to.”
“I don’t think that’s been decided,” said Rake of the possibility of Part One and Part Two for a fourth season. He added, “I’ll certainly have those conversations with Netflix.”
