It seems a long time since Netflix saved NBC’s canceled series Manifest, but thanks to Geeked Week we have our first look at the fourth and final season of the show, which will hit Netflix soon. Manifest fans went into meltdown when the series was canceled after the third season, leaving the story unfinished and many of the mysteries of the show unanswered. Even when series creator Jeff Rake tried to suggest a final movie-length episode to give the show some kind of closure, it looked like it wasn’t going to happen until Netflix rode in and saved the day.
There were a few tense weeks when it seemed that Netflix was not going to take on Manifest, but after some negotiations, it was officially announced that season 4 would be made for Netflix, and it would consider a bumper run of 20 episodes to tell the final chapter in the tale of flight 828 and its passengers. Despite most of the cast being out of contract by the time the revival was given the green light, many of them are returning to the series including Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Luna Blaise, Parveen Kaur, Holly Taylor, Daryl Edwards, and Matt Long.

Manifest is Thought to Be Heading to the Platform in November
Recent reports have suggested that Manifest will return to screens in November, meaning there are only a few months to go until the series begins its final run. It is not yet known whether the whole series will drop as one, or whether it will be split into two parts like the new season of Stranger Things.
“Since its premiere on Netflix in June, Manifest has proven very popular with our members. Jeff Rake and his team have crafted a beguiling mystery that has viewers around the world on the edge of their seats and believing again in second chances, and we’re thrilled that they will bring fans some closure with this final super-sized season,” said Bela Bajaria, head of globe TV, Netflix, in a statement when the series was renewed.
Rake added: “What started years ago as a flight of fancy deep in my imagination has evolved into the jet engine journey of a lifetime. Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisioned the worldwide outpouring of love and support for this story, its characters, and the team who work so hard to bring it all to life. That we will be able to reward the fans with the ending they deserve moves me to no end. On behalf of the cast, the crew, the writers, directors, and producers, thank you to Netflix, to Warner Bros., and of course to the fans. You did this.”
