Prepare to step aboard Manifest Season 4 Part 2, the final flight of the supernatural drama. Netflix saved Manifest after it was canceled thanks to a passionate fan campaign by NBC. The first part of season four released in early November and has since secured a spot on Netflix’s top 10 list.
Creator Jeff Rake’s Manifesto centers on the passengers and crew of Flight 828 who suddenly reappear after being presumed dead for more than five years. They find that reuniting with their families and society is complicated and emotionally draining, as many of their loved ones have since moved. Some of the survivors also begin to experience visions of the future referred to as “Callings”.
When Netflix rescued the show, they announced that Manifest Season 4 would be the final episode. Rake has previously said he has a six-season plan in mind, but any kind of conclusion is better than ending on a cliffhanger.
The second part of season 4 will follow an even bigger nail biter. The final 10 episodes should be filled with plenty of action, answers to a number of mysteries, and maybe some happy outcomes.
Here’s everything we know so far about Manifest Season 4 Part 2.
Season 4 Part 2 release date speculation
Netflix has not yet announced the release date of Manifest Season 4 Part 2.
The first half of the season, consisting of 10 episodes, premiered on November 4.
Fans have several theories about when the second part could appear. So far, all of Netflix’s announcements about Manifest have been made to dates related to the show’s lore. For example, they confirmed the renewal of Season 4 on August 28, 2021 and August 28 is the number of the flight that disappeared. They unveiled the first trailer on the same day in 2022.
A possible release date of Season 4 Part 2 of Manifest is April 7, 2023, since Flight 828 disappeared on April 7th. That’s only about six months after the release of Part 1, which would be a pretty standard buffer.
Another possible release date is June 2, 2023. On the show, June 2 is known as the “death date,” when all surviving passengers are doomed. It’s supposed to take place in 2024, but we don’t see Netflix waiting that long to release Manifest Season 4 Part 2. Even June 2, 2023 seems a bit long for fans as of November.
Manifest Season 4 Part 2 Cast
While Netflix hasn’t confirmed which cast members will definitely be returning for Manifest Season 4 Part 2, most of the main cast are expected to return, including:
- Josh Dallas as Ben Stone, a former math professor who was a passenger on Flight 828
- Melissa Roxburgh as Michaela “Mick” Stone, an NYPD detective and Ben’s sister who was a passenger
- JR Ramirez as Jared Vasquez, an NYPD lieutenant and Mick’s ex-fiancé
- Ty Doran as Cal Stone, Ben’s son who was a passenger
- Luna Blaise as Olive Stone, Ben’s daughter who was not on the plane
- Parveen Kaur as Saanvi Bahl, a doctor and medical researcher who was on Flight 828
- Holly Taylor as Angelina Meyer, a passenger who was held captive by fanatical parents upon her return
- Daryl Edwards as Robert Vance, director of the NSA
Other cast members who may appear in the second installment include: Mahira Kakkar as Aria Gupta, a Project Eureka scientist; Ali Lopez-Sohaili as Eagan Tehrani, a passenger who defies Ben; and Garrett Wareing as TJ Morrison, a passenger and Olive’s love interest.
Some key Manifest cast members may not be part of Season 4, although it is possible for them to appear in flashbacks or visions. Most notable is Matt Long as Zeke Landon, Michaela’s husband who sacrificed himself to save Cal’s life.
Manifest Season 4 Part 2 Storyline and ending of Part 1 explained
Manifest Season 4 Part 1 ended in another tragedy and another massive cliffhanger.
Angelina steals and absorbs the last remaining Omega Sapphire, a powerful gem that allows one to gain an infinite number of vocations. When she summons his abilities, volcanic fissures rupture the ground in New York City.
Meanwhile, Cal’s cancer has returned, which is a real problem since he’s the only one who can prevent an imminent apocalypse. The Stones have discovered that this death date not only spells the end for the passengers on Flight 828, but for all of humanity.
After realizing this, Zeke absorbs Cal’s cancer and dies. Thanks to his sacrifice, maybe the world can be saved. But right now, the fate of everyone on Earth is up in the air.
Season 2 will build on those events and conclude the Flight 828 storyline, creator Jeff Rake told TV Guide (opens in new tab)“It’s up to Ben, Mick and maybe most of all Cal to defeat Angelina as we make our way to the final block. The problem is that as Angelina gets more powerful it will get worse.”
Manifest introduced the existence of a divine consciousness that can connect loved ones even after death. So maybe Zeke and Michaela aren’t separated forever.
As he explained to Variety (opens in new tab)“Maybe even after death we have the opportunity to communicate with each other again. That’s going to be a big concept in our final block of 10 episodes, spoiler alert. But I think it’s a very powerful concept to hold in our hearts to get us through the day, especially in regards to loved ones we’ve lost, and also to get us through the day when we are struggling with hard times.”
