Manifest fans were devastated when they heard that the sci-fi show was canceled, but thanks to Netflix, they will get to see the final season. Meanwhile, the big, bad season 4 is to be aired in two chapters, each with 10 episodes. Read on to find out what we know so far about the fourth and final season of Manifest.
Netflix rescues Manifest for its final season
After Netflix saved Manifest from cancelation by NBC last August, the streamer made the announcement during Geeked Week. This led fans to immediately take to social media, demanding proper closure for the exciting sci-fi series.
The series, created by Jeff Rake, has been given the chance to air a supersized final season. Moreover, the season will kick off after a two-year time jump and is set to drop on Netflix “soon.” Now, finally, Netflix has released a teaser clip into season 4 on the streamer.
Sneak peek into season 4
In the teaser shared by Netflix, Michaela Stone (Melissa Roxburgh) is seen sneaking into a cargo container area, only to find something disturbing inside one of them. The container in question is marked with cherry blossoms on the outside, as was the ship that carried it.
As a reminder, the official Netflix synopsis for Manifest reads:
“When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years – and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on.”
“Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible in this emotionally rich, unexpected journey into a world grounded in hope, heart, and destiny.”

Show’s creator amazed by campaigning fans
As noted by Digital Spy, when Netflix saved Manifest last year, creator Rake was amazed by how many fans were campaigning to find a new home for the show. And as we know, they succeeded. He said that never in his wildest dreams could he have envisioned the worldwide outpouring of love and support for the show. In fact, for the story, the characters and the team had worked so hard to bring it all to life. He ended his statement by saying:
“That we will be able to reward the fans with the ending they deserve moves me to no end.”
Currently, the premiere date of the final, fourth season of Manifest is unknown. However, when it does arrive, parts one and two will be available for streaming on Netflix. Until then, we just have to be patient.
