The fourth season of Manifest will be covered in great depth in our lengthy preview. if you’re only interested in the headlines. Here are the key details you should be aware of:
Season 4 of Manifest: First Look
Manifest season 4 debuted for the first time ever during Netflix’s Geeked Week, a time when the streaming service gets to preview some of its future TV episodes and films. The actress Melissa Roxburgh, who plays Michaela Stone, is seen leaving for a dockyard outside of New York to check into a container in our first look footage, which lasts just over two minutes. The clip concludes as she sneaks across the yard and comes across a stowaway in a container with something engraved into his arm.
Manifest Season 4 on Netflix: What is the story?
The plot of Manifest began in 2018, when Flight 828 took off in the pilot episode on NBC. The sitcom captivated fans, becoming the 9th highest-rated show on NBC that season. NBC authorised a second and third season, but viewership had declined significantly over time.
Season 1 had an average of 12.61 million viewers, which had plummeted by more than half by the time season 3 began broadcasting.
The writing was on the wall for Manifest in the summer of 2021, and this is where the timeline with Netflix begins. NBC cancelled the show immediately after the season 3 finale of Manifest aired on June 10th, 2021. Warner Brothers Television (the show’s principal owner) licenced seasons 1-2 to Netflix on June 10th, 2021, in a probable last ditch effort to give the show some more exposure.
The show gained popularity after its first two seasons became available on Netflix in both the US and Canada. The first early sign that the show was catching on was its prolonged presence in Netflix’s top 10 lists. By September 17th, 2021, the programme had spent 94 days in the US top 10 and 78 days in Canada.
Numerous articles about how Manifest was the biggest show in the US for the summer (although that has been challenged) appeared, which was sufficient to start discussions about a return. Since the show’s rebirth, Netflix has disclosed that solely in the United States and Canada, seasons 1-3 received at least 214,520,000 million hours of viewing between June 27 and September 12.
After several weeks and months of back and forth, an agreement was finally reached, and on August 28th, 2021, a supersized final season was revealed (thanks in large part to Deadline, who provided numerous insider notes that talks were ongoing).
On August 21st, 2021, Netflix US added the third season. Netflix Canada soon after. More background information behind the cancellation and renewal is included in an in-depth article from The Hollywood Reporter, which also reported that 25 million people had seen the show on Netflix in the previous 28 days.
When considering a renewal, among of the major sticking issues for Netflix were acquiring the global rights and ensuring that the cast could return once the majority of the cast members’ contracts had expired.
Who is returning and who is new to the cast of Manifest Season 4?
The first two cast members confirmed to return were Josh Dallas, J.R. Ramirez, and Melissa Roxburgh. Parveen Kaur, Luna Blaise, and Holly Taylor were announced to return on September 9th. Ty Doran was also upgraded to season regular.
Daryl Edwards, who plays NSA director Robert Vance, was upgraded to series regular on September 10th. Thus far, the most notable departure for the programme has been Jack Messina in the character of Cal. Despite the fact that Cal was said to be negotiating a comeback.
Despite the fact that Matt Long had a scheduling difficulty due to his role in a new NBC pilot, Getaway. Matt Long will appear in the fourth season, according to TVLine, with Jeff Rake telling the publication that his return will allow “Zeke to continue his Manifest journey just as originally intended.” Alexis Suarez will reprise his role as Alonzo. Kenneth Meyer will be played again by Ben Livingston.
Season 4 will introduce several new smaller members, including:
- Perry Strong as Captain Kevin Fahey
- NaTonia Monét as Detective Price
- Aaron Smallwood Jr. as Registry Uniformed Officer
- Dan Matteucci as a Lawyer
- Breton Tyner-Bryan as an untitled cop
- Charles Massey as Security Guard
- Sabastian Betts as 828 Officer
Season 4 of Manifest will introduce new characters
Henry Kim – “Asian male between the ages of 50 and 80.” The character must be fragile and emaciated, with a distinct accent in English. The guy is one of the passengers of Flight 828 who mysteriously returns to Singapore and is detained. He is subjected to a military tribunal as passenger dread and mistrust grow. The Singaporean government later executes him. Michaela Stone hears about his death through Captain Kate Bowers, and his death is one of the things that leads her to resign from her employment.”
Kyle Boyd is another flight 828 passenger. White and indigenous from the Hopi Tribe.
Tela and June are two supporting characters. Tela is a Shinnecock Indian Nation Indigenous, while June is a Hopi Tribe Indigenous who is “infirmed in a hospital bed.”
Where is Manifest Season 4 in the works?
The fourth season of the show was shot in two parts. We’ll go into more depth later, but season 4 volume 1 was shot from November 18th, 2021 until April 20th, 2022. Volume 2 will be shot between June 13th and October 31st, 2022. We learned in early October 2021 that production would commence in November 2021. It will once again be shot exclusively in New York, with majority of the production taking place at Silver Cup Studios.
Pre-production began in October 2021, when Empire State Grips announced on Instagram that they were starting to prepare for filming with the remark “We are doing a thing again.”
Holly Taylor, who plays Angelina, revealed on Instagram in April 2022 that the first part of the last season has concluded.
“The first part of the final season of Manifest is complete.” Now we’ll take a short break before wrapping things up. Have fun, Manifam.”
