Good news to all who binge-watched the available seasons of Manifest when it first came out on Netflix: the show is renewed for a fourth season!
When Netflix added Manifest in June 2021, its third season finale was already airing on NBC. Around the same time, the TV broadcasting company suddenly revealed that they have decided to cancel Manifest Season 4. This saddened a lot of fans who were only starting to get hooked on the drama series.
After an active #SaveManifest movement conducted by fans, Netflix decided to negotiate with Warner Bros. Shortly, they were approved to renew the show for its last season. So yes, Manifest Season 4 will be coming out sometime soon.
Manifest Season 4 Release Date
Even though Manifest Season 4 has been confirmed, there is no word yet on when it will officially be released. But thanks to legendary director Stephen King, Rake hinted at a November release.
This seems to coincide with the previous report by Rake that the show will debut in late 2022.
In August 28, Netflix revealed that the show will be released in Friday, November 4, 2022. They also released a poster and trailer:
Manifest Total Number of Seasons
As of this writing, the three seasons of the drama are available to stream via Netflix. And although a fourth season has been confirmed, it is said to be the last season.
The series was originally aimed to have a total of six seasons. But due to unknown reasons, the creators of the show decided to cut it short to just four seasons.
Deadline revealed that the final season of Manifest will have 20 episodes. But as customary for Netflix, these episodes will be split into several parts.
Netflix's big announcement is being celebrated by fans as "828 Day" in reference to Flight 828 in the series. Coincidentally, Netflix made this announcement on August 28, 2021.
Manifest Season 4 Filming Details
Shortly after Netflix's big news, the cast and crew of Manifest went straight to work to start filing scenes for the show. They started filming in November 2021 in New York. And in April 2022, both cast and crew members wrapped up production for the first half of Season 4.
In an interview with EW, show creator, Jeff Rake says that "The endgame won't change at all."
Rake also shared that "I am absolutely confident that 20 episodes gives me enough time to tell the entirety of the story as I always intended to."
In the meantime, there is no mention yet of a filming schedule for the last 10 episodes of the drama.

Manifest Season 4 Plot
As seen in the trailer, the main characters of the drama will continue to piece together what happened to them on board Flight 828. There is said to be a major character who will have a tragic ending. Meanwhile, a character will also be returning in Season 4.
It's possible that a time leap will be included in the show for Eden. But then again, there's no official word yet on what Rake's plans for the show are.
There will be a total of 20 episodes in Manifest Season 4. However, Rake assures us that Season 4 will be worth the wait.
