Popular series Manifest will return to screens in a new, super-sized fourth and final season on Netflix, the streaming service announced today.
The fourth and final season will consist of 20 episodes, which will bring the story of the passengers of Flight 828 to its conclusion. The 20 episodes will be presented in parts to be determined.
The deal also includes previous seasons of the Warner Bros. Television–produced series to premiere on Netflix around the world in the coming months.
“What started years ago as a flight of fancy deep in my imagination has evolved into the jet engine journey of a lifetime. Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisioned the worldwide outpouring of love and support for this story, its characters, and the team who work so hard to bring it all to life,” said creator, showrunner and executive producer Jeff Rake.
Rake added: “That we will be able to reward the fans with the ending they deserve moves me to no end. On behalf of the cast, the crew, the writers, directors, and producers, thank you to Netflix, to Warner Bros., and of course to the fans. You did this.”
Bela Bajaria, Netflix Head of Global TV, added: “Since its premiere on Netflix in June, Manifest has proven very popular with our members. Jeff Rake and his team have crafted a beguiling mystery that has viewers around the world on the edge of their seats and believing again in second chances, and we’re thrilled that they will bring fans some closure with this final super-sized season.”
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.
Manifest is produced by Jeff Rake Productions and Compari Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television and Universal Television.
The executive producers include Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Back to the Future movies), Jack Rapke (Cast Away, The Polar Express, What Lies Beneath), Jacqueline Levine (Flight, Project Blue Book, Allied), and Len Goldstein (All Rise, Hart of Dixie, The Carrie Diaries).
Manifest aired for three seasons on NBC and stars Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, Parveen Kaur and Matt Long.
In the third season, over a year has passed since the miraculous homecoming of Flight 828 and the discovery of others who have mysteriously returned. While the Stone family endeavors to keep their friends safe and make their enemies believe the unbelievable, new challenges will test their trust of the callings and each other. But sticking together is more important than ever, because no matter what happens, it’s all connected.
