Manifest Renewed for Season 4 on Netflix
Get my Bloomies Amex, darling, because we are buying sweaters tonight. The important visualization that we all did–draping ourselves in cashmere, chanting “Manifest Season 4 on Netflix“–has worked. Much like our faith in quality knitwear, Netflix renewed Manifest for another season.
Manifest Renewed, Will Be Show’s Final Season

That’s right–all that negotiating paid off. Netflix, which has seen Manifest only sustain its popularity since it hit the top 10, gave the show a fourth season. However, at this time, they are planning on that being the final season of the show. That’s a bit of a blow, obviously, to creator Jeff Rake, who had planned out a six-season storyline. (So many callings.) Though, it’s possible this can change. Lucifer was saved by the streamer for a single season, only to have that season expanded and an additional season added.
Still, another season is better than nothing, right? Plus, Rake will get the opportunity to end the show properly, instead of the somewhat ambiguous ending of season three. I mean, I assume–I still haven’t finished it (no spoilers, please!). Anyway, there will be twenty episodes in season four, which will be their largest season yet. In addition, Netflix will probably divide the season into parts, like they did with Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and the aforementioned Lucifer.
Most of Cast Expected to Return for Fourth Season
Netflix took the fun step of not only announcing the renewal on August 28, aka 8/28–the same as the show’s flight number–they also announced it at 8:28 AM (PST), as Deadline tells us. That was a shout-out to the show’s devoted fans, who mobilized in support of renewal.
Deadline also reports that the negotiations resulted in most of the cast returning for this next season. That includes stars Josh Dallas and Sweater Goddess Melissa Roxburgh, as well as the supporting cast, including Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, and Matt Long. The article pointedly does not mention Athena Karkanis (Grace), though, so I am now a little concerned about her fate in season 3. (NO SPOILERS!!!)
We don’t know yet when to expect season 4, but we’ll let you know. And in lieu of the official announcement from Netflix, which is just a bunch of characters saying “828,” here’s a word from an up-and-coming Maine-based scribe.
MANIFEST has been saved. Netflix is ordering a “super-sized” 4th and final season.
