The final episode of Manifest Season 4 Part 2 is now available on Netflix. However, fans are already looking ahead to the future which isn’t surprising given the events of the season. For those who have watched the finale, one big question arises “What will be the Manifest Season 5 Release date?” and “Will we ever see Ben and Michaela Stone again, along with the rest of the passengers?” Though it seemed like the show was finished after its conclusion, there must surely be potential for a sequel or spin-off right?
Without giving anything away, let’s just say that Manifest season 4 part 2 raises it to 11, and the way the season ends leaves viewers with some unanswered questions. So, as viewers finish binge-watching the season’s new episodes, they are wondering about the show’s future. In this article, we talk about everything there is to know about the Manifest season 5 release date, including when it will be coming out. So keep reading the article!
Manifest Season 5: Will It Happen?
The short answer is NO, Manifest will not return for Season 5. Season 4 will be the show’s final season. This news may disappoint fans who had hoped to see more episodes of the show.
But as of now, Netflix confirmed that Manifest season 4 is the final destination of the Manifest series. The streamer only brought back the Sci-Fi show so fans could finish the story. If it had been up to NBC, the show would have remained in cliffhanger limbo indefinitely. When the show was canceled in the summer of 2021, creator Jeff Rake expressed his disappointment on Twitter:
“That we’ve been shut down in the middle is a gut punch, to say the least. Hoping to find a new home. You the fans deserve an ending to your story. Thanks for the love shown to me, the cast, and the crew. #savemanifest.”’
When Jeff Rake created the series, he knew exactly what story he wanted to tell. His original plan was to tell the story over six seasons, but when Netflix renewed the show for a fourth and final season after NBC canceled it, that plan changed slightly.
Rake condensed the story he planned to tell to adjust the timing while remaining true to the story he set out to tell. Even if Netflix offered the option of a fifth season, it’s unlikely that it would happen because Rake and the writers went into the season knowing it would be the last.
As a result, they planned and executed the series’ original ending throughout the show’s 20-episode fourth season. While there will undoubtedly be discussions among fans about a possible continuation, the show’s ending was fairly definitive, implying that another season is unlikely.
Manifest, a supernatural mystery box series, debuted on NBC in 2018. The show, which stars Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, and Parveen Kaur, follows a group of passengers whose flight arrived five and a half years late. They must figure out what happened to their plane and how to live in a world that has moved on without them after being presumed dead.
While the network canceled the show after the third season, which ended on a cliffhanger with the death of a significant character, Netflix stepped in to save the day and gave the series a fourth season. When Netflix renewed Manifest, it directed a massive 20-episode season. This season, season 4, was divided into two parts, each with ten episodes. Part 1 debuted in November 2022, and Part 2 debuted on the streamer on June 2nd, coinciding with the death day of the flight’s 828 passengers.
There are currently no plans for a Manifest Season 5, and the chances of a fifth season going on are extremely low. Viewers should take heart from the fact that the show has been performing so well that a change of heart and a Manifest season 5 cannot be ruled out entirely. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for the Manifest series after season 4.
