We thought the intricately planned drama was grounded forever last year when NBC canceled it after three seasons. But as Netflix audiences warmed to the mystery of Montego Air Flight 828, which disappeared for five and a half years only to return with passengers who hadn’t aged a day, the streamer brought back Manifest for a fourth and final round.
Although the show was originally conceived for six seasons, “we’re a little bit on point,” says creator Jeff Rake. “But nothing fell out of the mythology.” That means fans will get answers faster! Here’s where things land in the first of two 10-episode blocks:
Two whole years have passed
Central flashbacks in each episode update the audience. “The flashback sequences play out like their own mini-mysteries,” notes Rake, “and at the end they provide context to the actual story happening in the same episode .”
The family tragedy has left its mark
The normally solid stones “are in poor condition,” says Rake. Eden remains missing and is kidnapped as a baby by the murderous Angelina (Holly Taylor), preventing father Ben (Josh Dallas) from finding her. “He hardly ever speaks to the rest of his family,” says Rake. “Ben basically lives in his car, driving around putting up posters.” His sister Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) and NYPD cop Jared Vasquez (JR Ramirez) try to help.

Rake teases that it’s a man “we’ve never met but someone we’ve talked about before,” and he’s carrying a very special package. The story it launches attracts scientist Saanvi Bahl (Parveen Kaur), ally Robert Vance (Daryl Edwards), and now-adolescent Cal Stone (Ty Doran).
