Filming for Manifest Season 4 will resume in January 2022. We’ve also got some news about some characters that are set to feature in season 4 plus another director who will be working on the fourth and final Netflix series.
Before we get into the news about Manifest season 4, let's first take a look at some context.
After a huge success on Netflix, Manifest from NBC was resurrected by Netflix over the summer. It’s been renewed for a fourth and supersized final season that’s likely due to release in 2022 (and later for some regions).
The fourth season supporting November 2021 was filming but, as is the norm for most productions over Christmas break, it was halted. We don’t know exactly how far filming has gotten nor do we know when it’s scheduled to wrap up.
We do know that filming will resume on Manifest season 4, January 10, 2022, assuming everything goes according to plan.
Jeff Rake most recently took to Twitter on Christmas Day to wish Manifesters a Merry Christmas and promises that “Your gift is in the works!”
Filming takes place exclusively in New York, with the majority of production at Silver Cup Studios.
A few characters will be added to the show, but only in minor roles.
Kyle Boyd, a flight 828 passenger is the first. The character description notes that Kyle is not attending his regularly scheduled 828 registry appointments as he’s supposed to. Additional notes state that he’s “Indigenous from the Hopi Tribe and white.”
Tela and Juni will be the second minor character in season 4. Tela is an Indigenous from the Shinnecock Indian Nation and June is an Indigenous from the Hopi Tribe and “infirmed in a hospital bed”.
These three new characters aren’t the only new characters to feature in season 4. We reported in November that Henry Kim will be featured in season 4.
SJ Main Muñoz will be a director in season 4 of Manifest which will mark her first episode in the series to date. She’s predominantly known for writing and directing short films but in recent years has directed episodes of The Rookie, Chicago Med and P.D. Plus Ordinary Joe.
Other Manifest news: Netflix will add seasons 1 and 2, in a variety of Netflix regions, on January 1, 2022, as licenses are transferred from the previous owners to Netflix.
