Finally, the announcement may be made public: The series Manifest premiered the first episode of its last season on Netflix on November 4, 2022. The show’s renewal for a fourth season was announced at 8:28 a.m. on August 28, 2021, in reference to the series’ key Flight 828, which returns to Jamaica with its passengers five years after taking off. The first teaser for Season 4 (which will be released in two parts, each with 10 episodes) was released on August 28, 2022, exactly one year later. The show’s last season saw the reunion of almost the entire ensemble, including series regulars Josh Dallas and Melissa Roxburgh (well, two).
Netflix’s decision to renew Manifest in August 2021 was a stunning about-face; the streaming service and the show’s creator, NBC, had both previously passed on the series. However, after the addition of seasons one and two to Netflix in the summer of 2021, Manifest broke streaming records in the United States. Subsequently, the third season of Manifest was added to the service.
Is Season 4 of Manifest in the Works?
The production of Manifest Season 4 has begun as of August 28, 2021. Due to the significance of Flight 828 in the show, fans have christened today “828 Day.” We were anticipating some happy news from Netflix to mark the occasion, and we were not disappointed. Another season is underway, and it will be the last, according to a press statement put out on 828 Day.
Manifest ended after three seasons, in case you haven’t been keeping up with the show’s cancellation news. After the third season finale aired in June 2021, the news was officially released.
Date of Season 4’s Debut on ‘Manifest’
Season 4 of Manifest premiered on November 4, 2022, with the first 10 episodes. Rake has told Entertainment Weekly that he considers each 10-episode release to be a separate season. “I basically decided, for my purposes, that I’m going to handle the plot as if we had been handed two 10 episode seasons,” he said.
Season 4 of Manifest has not yet been confirmed to return, and it is unclear when the second half of that season will air.
The Season 4 ‘Manifest’ Cast
Nellie Andreeva of Deadline claims that as of June 2021, the Manifest cast members have no further obligation to appear on the programme. According to an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Rake said that this led to “ugly, terrible talks” behind closed doors. “The discussions were difficult and long drawn out affairs. There is business to be done. Many of them were nail-biters in which the contestants played chicken. When will someone give in? That begs the question, “Do you absolutely need that person?” Were that character really necessary to the plot, would the narrative have continued, or could you replace that role? Honestly, the response was not yes.”
Deadline’s Andreeva claims that the rest of the actors saw “sizeable salary rises” for season four. According to What’s On Netflix, the budget for each episode of the last season has been significantly boosted, rising from $1 million to $4 or $5 million.
What to Expect From the First Episode of Manifest Season 4
The fourth season of Manifest will continue to set up the show’s climactic showdown without giving away any of the explosive twists from the season three finale. The return of a key figure, the tragic loss of another, and the 828s’ acquisition of fresh knowledge all contributed to the escalation of the mystery.
It’s a race against time for Ben, Michaela, Saanvi, and the rest of the team to figure out what happened to the Flight 828 passengers, where they went, and how to save themselves as the passengers’ expiration date approaches.
In a December 2021 interview, Josh Dallas teased what Ben (his character) would be up to in Season 4. He’s not in a good place,” the actor admitted. Stock up on tissues, because a new season is coming.

Season 4 Premiere of Manifest
Beware of potential Season 4 Episode 10 spoilers for Manifest!
Many of the loose ends from the end of Part 1 will still be hanging over the heads of the Flight 828 passengers when we pick up with them again in Part 2. In addition to stealing and misusing the Omega Sapphire, Angelina appears to have opened volcanic fissures throughout New York, which bode poorly for the prospects of rescuing the Lifeboat in time to prevent the Death Date.
To help the other passengers (and the world) survive the Death Date, Zeke took on Cal’s suffering and sacrificed himself in his place. Because of Zeke’s sacrifice, Cal has beat cancer, and this will be a huge emotional hurdle and motivation for Michaela in the final episodes. The Stones will have to deal with loss again, this time with everything on the line.
