We couldn't let a day as significant as today not be celebrated. Manifest will officially return for a large fourth and final season, only on Netflix! .

The final season of Manifest, created by Jeff Rake, will consist of 20 episodes. As is customary for series on Netflix, the 20-episode season will be split into multiple parts.

In anticipation of closing the deal with Netflix, the main studio of Manifest Warner Bros. TV at the beginning of this month began negotiations with the cast to return to Manifest 4, as well as contacting writers who had previously worked on the series and some new ones.

Sources confirm that stars Josh Dallas and Melissa Roxburgh have closed deals for the last season. It is believed that J.R. Ramirez, while Parveen Kaur remains in talks, along with some or all of the remaining regular characters in the series: Luna Blaise, Matt Long and Jack Messina.

The new cast deals, whose original contracts expired in June, would include sizable salary increases. Manifest's actors all participated in the #SaveManifest campaign which helped keep the series at the top of Netflix's streaming charts and ultimately bring it back to life.

The deal with Warner Bros. TV also includes the previous three seasons of Manifes t, currently available only on Netflix, and which will debut on the platform worldwide in the coming months. The incredible resilience of Manifest ratings on Netflix has led to the extraordinary turnaround, as Netflix and NBC / Peacock last month expressed interest in resuming the show.

Manifest 4: what to expect

Netflix's renewal will give fans answers after NBC's cancellation and subsequent premature ending, leaving unanswered questions and unresolved cliffhangers about the series' third season finale, which in Rake's original plans should have lasted 6 seasons, just like Lost. That plan will now be condensed to bring the passenger story of Flight 838 to a fitting conclusion in four seasons. Manifest 4 and its 20 episodes would help achieve this, as it is also the longest season of the series (the first was 16 episodes, the second and third 13 each).

The series is by Jeff Rake Productions and Compari Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television and Universal Television. Rake is executive producing with Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke, Jacqueline Levine and Len Goldstein.

‘Manifest’ Season 4: Everything We Know About What’s Next for the Saved Show

So many unanswered questions. NBC canceled Manifest despite its shocking season 3 finale cliffhanger. Luckily, Netflix saved the day, ordering a fourth and final season, thanks to a new crop of fans desperate to find out what happened to Flight 828.

The network pulled the plug on Manifest in June 2021, days after the two-part finale aired. Viewers hoping that the episode would wrap up loose ends in the story were disappointed, as even more twists were introduced into the series’ expansive landscape.

Grace (Athena Karkanis) — spoiler alert — seemingly died after an altercation with Angelina (Holly Taylor) as the 828 passenger abducted Grace and Ben’s (Josh Dallas) baby, Eden. Meanwhile, the couple’s son, Cal (Jack Messina), returned in the form of a teenager (Ty Doran) after going missing when he touched the plane’s tailfin. Plus, the love triangle between Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh), Zeke (Matt Long) and Jared (J.R. Ramirez) seemed to be reignited by old jealousies.

In tandem with the show’s cancellation, seasons 1 and 2 made their debut on Netflix, taking up a lengthy stay in the streaming platform’s Top 10 list. As new viewers discovered the series, they were saddened to learn of its demise, which ramped up conversations about a  season 4 renewal.

Creator Jeff Rake, who initially sold the concept to NBC for six seasons that were already mapped out, continued to advocate for the show’s continuation as conversations broke down about a renewal.

“We’re trying to find a way to conclude the series,” the writer tweeted in June 2021. “Could take a week, a month, a year. But we’re not giving up. You deserve an end to the story.”

One way Rake hoped to give fans what they wanted was in the form of a movie. “I had giant cliffhangers in the season 3 finale, so I had every intention to have three more seasons to slow-burn the back half of the story,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “I’m reading the writing on the wall that we may not find a home for three more seasons of the show, so I moved to plan B: Some platform would bankroll a feature or a movie finale, like we saw with Timeless, Firefly and Deadwood. I just need a modest budget to tell the story. I am personally sketching out how to consolidate the back half of the series into a much more streamlined, cut-to-the-chase two-hour finale that would distill all of the hanging chads of the series. That’s where my head is at.”

However, news broke in July 2021 that NBC and Netflix were once again in talks with the show’s studio, Warner Bros. TV, about a possible fourth season. Netflix announced their deal for a 20-episode final season in August 2021. While Rake won’t get to see his six-season vision come to life, he will get the chance to answer all the mysteries of Flight 828 in the super-sized final chapter.
