‘Manifest’ Season 4: Number of episodes
NBC canceled Manifest notwithstanding its shocking season 3 finale cliffhanger, yet season 4 could in any case be not too far off because of another crop of fans frantic to discover what happened to Flight 828.
The network pulled the plug on Manifest in June 2021, days after the two-part finale broadcasted. Watchers trusting that the episode would wrap up remaining details in the story were baffled, as considerably more bends were brought into the series’ broad landscape.
Grace (Athena Karkanis) — spoiler alert — apparently died after an altercation with Angelina (Holly Taylor) as the 828 traveler stole Grace and Ben’s (Josh Dallas) child, Eden. In the interim, the couple’s child, Cal (Jack Messina), returned as a youngster (Ty Doran) subsequent to disappearing when he contacted the plane’s tailfin. In addition, the love triangle between Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh), Zeke (Matt Long) and Jared (J.R. Ramirez) appeared to be reignited by old jealousies.
Pair with the show’s scratch-off, seasons 1 and 2 made their presentation on Netflix, taking up an extended stay in the streaming stage’s Top 10 rundown. As new watchers found the series, they were disheartened to learn of its downfall, which sloped up discussions about a potential season 4 reestablishment.
Maker Jeff Rake, who at first offered the idea to NBC for six seasons that were at that point delineated, kept on upholding for the show’s continuation as discussions separated about a recharging.
“We’re trying to find a way to conclude the series,” the writer tweeted in June 2021. “Could take a week, a month, a year. But we’re not giving up. You deserve an end to the story.”
One way Rake hoped to give fans what they wanted was in the form of a movie. “I had giant cliffhangers in the season 3 finale, so I had every intention to have three more seasons to slow-burn the back half of the story,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “I’m reading the writing on the wall that we may not find a home for three more seasons of the show, so I moved to plan B: Some platform would bankroll a feature or a movie finale, like we saw with Timeless, Firefly and Deadwood. I just need a modest budget to tell the story. I am personally sketching out how to consolidate the back half of the series into a much more streamlined, cut-to-the-chase two-hour finale that would distill all of the hanging chads of the series. That’s where my head is at.”
Notwithstanding, news broke in July 2021 that NBC and Netflix were by and by in chats with the show’s studio, Warner Bros. Television, about a potential fourth season.
