We finally know when the fourth and final season of mystery hit Manifest will be released on Netflix! As promised, it’s still so far in 2022 – but only the first half of season 4 will come. So we still don’t know how the series about the passengers of Montego Air Flight 828 will end, but maybe that’s a good thing. By dividing the 20-part fourth season into two halves of 10 episodes each, the suspense is maintained a little longer…
Season 4.1 comes to Netflix on November 4, 2022. We then expect the release of season 4.2 in 2023 – the exact date has not yet been set.
It is no coincidence that both the start date and the trailer for Season 4 were revealed at the end of August. Manifest fans had been looking forward to August 28 for some time and hoped there would be news about the series – and series creator Jeff Rake had confirmed this a few weeks ago. Why August 28th? For fans of the mystery hit, this day is known as the “Manifest Day”, because in American spelling, the month comes first and then the day, so it’s 8:28 am. – this results in the number 828, which repeatedly plays an important role in the series.
Right at the beginning of the new season, fans will have to adjust to changes – and that doesn’t just mean the time jump of two years. Be warned of spoilers if you haven’t seen the season 3 finale yet!
In Manifest Season 4, the Stone family is left without their mother, Grace (Athena Karkanis), who was murdered at the end of Season 3. Grace’s son Cal, on the other hand, has finally reappeared in the Season 3 finale after his mysterious disappearance – albeit a few years older! In Season 4 he is now played by Ty Doran as a teenager. But there’s more that turns the Stones’ family life upside down: The Netflix Season 4 synopsis reveals that two years later, the Stones still haven’t been able to find baby Eden, who was kidnapped by Angelina (Holly Taylor).
Here’s the official synopsis of Season 4 of Manifesto: Two years after Grace’s brutal murder turned her life upside down, the Stone family lies in shambles while a devastated Ben (Josh Dallas) continues to care for his Woman mourns and searches for his kidnapped daughter Eden. Overcome with grief, Ben resigns from his role as co-captain of the “lifeboat,” leaving Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) to pilot it alone – an almost impossible task as every movement of the passengers is monitored by a government agency.
As the date of death nears and the passengers become more desperate for a way to survive, a mysterious passenger emerges with a package for Cal that will change everything they knew about Flight 828 and will prove key to unlocking the mystery of vocations to unravel.
