“What started years ago as a flight of fancy deep in my imagination has evolved into the jet engine journey of a lifetime,” said Rake (via Entertainment Weekly).

“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. 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, Warner Bros., and of course to the fans. You did this.”

No, YOU’RE crying.

Netflix’s head of global TV Bela Bajaria 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.”

So, what can we expect from the last hurrah? And will there be any key differences following its departure from NBC?

Here’s everything you need to know about Manifest season four.

Manifest season 4 release date UK: When will it air?

The supernatural drama will bow out with a 20-episode run – that’s four more episodes than season one, and seven more than the second and third instalments.

Chatting to Entertainment Weekly, Rake said: “We certainly expect to be in production this calendar year. I’m hopeful that cameras are rolling in November or December latest.

“We’re going to work as fast as we can while still keeping an eye on quality control, because we want to get episodes to everyone as soon as possible. We also want them to be excellent. It might take a minute for a brand-new batch of episodes to show up in people’s homes, but it’s going to be worth the wait.”

Previously, UK fans weren’t able to watch the show in line with its US run because of pesky licensing laws, but now that season four is heading exclusively to Netflix, we’d expect the respective premiere dates to be in line with one another.

Manifest season 4 cast: Who’s in it?

According to Deadline, Josh Dallas (Ben Stone) and Melissa Roxburgh (Michaela Stone) have closed deals for the final season. They’re expected to be joined by JR Ramirez (Jared Vasquez).

Parveen Kaur (Saanvi Bahl) is said to still be in contract negotiations “along with some or all” of the following: Luna Blaise (Olive Stone), Jack Messina (Cal Stone) and Matt Long (Zeke Landon), who is also working on NBC drama Getaway, but will hopefully be able to work out a schedule that allows him to do both.

It’s believed that the new cast deals “include sizeable pay increases”.

Let’s hope those pay increases will bring back Long. The actor’s certainly excited for the new season – but there is a question mark hanging over the level of his actual involvement, because of that aforementioned potential schedule clash.

“I will be back for some of it, we’re just trying to find out the maximum I can do,” Long said, speaking at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards (via Deadline).

“I love the character in the show so much, but as you know, when the show was canceled I booked another show. It was a pilot. We don’t know what’s happening with it yet. It’s also a really awesome project. So we’re just trying to work out schedules. Everybody wants the best thing for everyone so fingers crossed it all works out for the best.”

Netflix’s show rescue was as much a surprise for Long as anyone else.

“It’s so surreal, it just doesn’t happen, right?” Long said. “It’s just been the most incredible experience. I joined the show episode 12 in the first season, and from the very beginning, it’s just been one of the most rewarding experiences in my career. I love my character so much.”

“After it was canceled, it was heartbreaking. But then we got picked up by Netflix, it’s so much more than we ever could’ve dreamed of. I can’t wait to get back to it and see everybody and be part of the story again.”

And Long has his own theories about why the fan support has been so huge for the show.

“I think everybody that watches it can imagine what that might be like for themselves if they skipped five and a half years,” he said.

“Plus, Jeff Rake, the creator, has woven a really intricate, complicated mystery with characters that people can relate to. There’s a lot of different people on the show, a lot of different characters from different backgrounds. It’s also word of mouth; it’s people talking to each other and their friends and family, and we just got incredibly lucky that it was us that it happened to.”

Manifest season 4 plot: What will happen?

There were a number of developments in season three that will have a seismic impact on the story moving forwards.

Jared now knows that Saanvi was involved in the death of Sarah’s mother The Major, while Cal had disappeared after touching the tailfin. Angelina killed Grace, before running off with Eden, and both Eagan and Randall had been arrested and taken away.

There’s also the question of where, exactly, Captain Daly has been hiding.

“Whether it’s purgatory, whether it’s the netherworld, these are terms and concepts that Ben and others will struggle to understand,” Rake told TV Insider. “Let’s put it this way: Captain Daly has been exactly where the passengers as a group were for those five and a half years. Captain Daly has been exactly where Cal was from the end of Episode 312 when he disappears to when he returns right there at the very end of the season finale. What that place is, I’m going let Cal speak to that when we come back in season four.”

The upcoming episodes will explore the ramifications of all of that, and much more. But despite being unable to secure six seasons, Rake is feeling good about the road ahead.

“The endgame won’t change at all,” he told EW. “I am absolutely confident that 20 episodes gives me enough time to tell the entirety of the story as I always intended to.”
