Manifest to take off for season 4
Manifest will formally take off once more. After the NBC series’ shocking demise after season 3, fans have been supporting it. And who can blame them, given the enormous cliffhanger it ended on? After all that drama, a massive fourth season of the show will be released on Netflix, providing an official resolution to the riddle. The complete fourth season of Manifest is detailed here.
Wasn’t Manifest cancelled?
Well, it was, technically. The programme was cancelled by NBC on June 14, 2021. The network actually decided to make the change at the last minute because the cast members’ contracts were slated to expire the next day. For some more recent viewers, it was also unexpected that the series was at the top of Netflix’s Top 10 list as additional viewers binge-watched it for the first time.

People wanted Manifest back!
Following Manifest’s termination at NBC, the program’s cast, staff, and fans came together. This, together with the show’s consistently high viewership statistics on Netflix, increased the likelihood that the show would be renewed.
According to Deadline, Warner Bros. TV, the show’s production company, was supposed to be wrapping up talks with Netflix in August to get a season 4 set up. There had been discussions and “if-come” offers made to the actors and authors as well, but nothing was finalised as yet.

NBC cancelled the series, despite that. If renewed, Manifest most certainly wouldn’t come back to the network or even its streaming service, Peacock, according to Deadline.
With the hashtag #SaveManifest, Twitter went wild, and the series enjoyed a four-week run atop Nielsen’s U.S. streaming list. The Manifest cast, including Josh Dallas (who plays Ben Stone), took notice of #SaveManifest and decided to tweet his own support,
Negotiations for Manifest’s renewal with Netflix were not the first time a choice like this was made. After it was cancelled, Netflix brought back the Warner Bros. TV and FOX show Lucifer. The #SaveManifest campaign had real hope because both parties have a history of reaching these kinds of agreements.
Manifest season 4!
So the season 4 is coming in split parts, brace yourselves for the flight!

According to Deadline, the majority of the actors will be making a comeback. Those that were still alive at the end of season 3 at least. The confirmed returnees include Josh Dallas, Melissa Roxburgh, J. R. Ramirez, Parveen Kaur, Luna Blaise, and Holly Taylor. Ty Doran will replace Jack Messina, who portrayed Cal Stone, in the series in a shocking turn of events.
