'Manifest': Netflix Drops First Clip For Season 4 Of Drama Series It Saved After NBC Cancellation

Netflix has dropped the first clip from the upcoming fourth season of Manifest.

Last year, the series found new life on the streamer becoming one of the most-watched shows on it, and because of its success, Netflix decided to save the series by producing a new season to continue the story after the show was canceled by NBC.

Details on 'Manifest' season 4:

Netflix has promised a “supersized” final season of Manifest, hosting 20 episodes to end the series.  It is expected that the streamer will break up the final season into two arcs as it recently did with the last season of its critically acclaimed series, Ozark.

Here’s the official description of the series:

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.

The maincast is expected to return, including Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas and J. R. Ramirez.

 

Creator and showrunner Jeff Rake commented when the sereis was picked up by Netflix last year, saying:

“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. 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.”

The season is anticipated to premiere in the fall.
