“Whatever we’re meant to save the passengers from, it’s coming. It’s violent.” Yes, it is coming, and it will pull the rugs from right under our feet.
Manifest has been one of the most successful and mind-boggling series of all time. It aired for three seasons. Though the series wasn’t exactly a hit on NBC but created a considerable amount of following for itself once it landed on Netflix. However, that wasn’t a good enough reason for NBC to pick it up for another season, and all the hopes were shattered when NBC finally decided to cancel the show midway, back in June 2021, and the cancellation news brought the uncertainty for the upcoming parts.
However, a negotiation between Warner Bros. and Netflix made the streaming platform officially renew the series for Season 4. And now, with Rake dropping hints regarding the release date, Manifesters around the world have started rejoicing.
Here are all the latest updates regarding Manifest Season 4:
#SaveManifest: What was it all about?
After three seasons of Manifest, NBC decided to cancel the show, most probably because of the deteriorating rank and consistently decreasing average viewership. After which, a heartfelt note by the creator Jeff Rake surfaced on Twitter.
My dear Manifesters,
I’m devastated by NBC’s decision to cancel us. That we’ve been shut down in the middle is a gut punch to say the least. Hoping to find a new home. You the fans deserve an ending to your story. Thanks for the love shown to me, cast, and crew. #savemanifest

Soon after, started a campaign by the name of #SaveManifest by the fans around the world. Along with that, the fans made it a mission to make Manifest stay on the top watched shows list on Netflix and urge the platform to pick it up for another season.
Will there be Season 4 of Manifest?

After a worldwide social media campaign, Netflix decided to pick up Manifest for another season so as to give a proper wrap-up to the story and tie all the loose ends. Though the creator Jeff Rake was planning for six seasons while NBC was the prime distributor, he is content with Netflix’s final season in the hope that it will do justice to the story rather than letting it drop in between.
Couldn't let a day as significant as today go uncelebrated.

Manifest Season 4 Release Date
Jeff Rake took to Twitter to drop the release update on Twitter when Stephen King enquired about it. As per the tweet, we can expect Manifest Season 4 to hit the screens sometime in November 2022. Rake seems to be confident about the release window else, he wouldn’t have taken the leap, keeping into account NBC’s cancellation of the show despite Rake’s plans of six seasons in total.
Thank you for your inquiry,@StephenKing.

Manifest Season 4 Trailer
There has been no confirmation regarding the release date. Hence, there is no trailer as well for Manifest Season 4. However, do take a look at the trailer of Season 3 in case you haven’t watched it or just want to brush up on the facts:
Manifest Season 4 Plot
The show follows the story of a business aircraft 828 that takes off and, after turbulence, lands after five and a half years. Their arrival creates chaos among the common mass as well as authorities. One of the passengers is a police officer who tries to get to the roots of that unbelievable occurrence while survivors battle with the horrifying flashbacks coming to them.
With each new season, more current bits of insight about people and the flight are unfurled, and the dilemma around whether all of it is real or not stays the same. Manifest Season 4 will be concluding the mystery behind flight 828, and we’ll get to know what really caused it or whether it really happened, or it is some kind of a Mandela effect.
Apart from that, rumors that the new season might see a time jump for baby Eden are also afloat. A recent post by an Instagram handle shows 4-year-olds, Jianna and Jeena, posing with Ben Stone, a.k.a. Josh Dallas.
The caption reads, “Love our on-set Daddy. He is the most loving and amazing person you will ever meet. We are such lucky little girls to be a part of the Manifest Family.” It’s quite a big hint that the twins might play an older version of Ben and Grace’s daughter, Eden. However, these are just speculations as we wait for any new updates from Netflix.
