Manifest is about a passenger plane mysteriously disappearing and then reappearing five years later. The show has managed its own reappearing act after it was canceled following three seasons on NBC, but found new life on Netflix for its fourth and final season.
We’ve seen other shows find second lives on different networks or by making the move to streaming in recent years, including the likes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Cobra Kai and Lucifer. Fan outcry helped keep these shows stay alive and Manifest is another example of this.
The fans that used their voices to help save Manifest can now reap the rewards as the final season is now available on Netflix. Here's everything you need to know about Manifest season 4.

What is the plot of Manifest?
Here's the official Manifest season 4 part 2 synopsis from Netflix: "In the aftermath of Angelina unleashing a devastating volcanic fissure, the passengers face severe scrutiny in a world fueled by 828er hate, no longer free to solve their own Callings without constant supervision by the unscrupulous 828 Registry. A mysterious accident delivers ominous warnings on a biblical scale that will further jeopardize the livelihood of all the passengers. As Michaela grieves the loss of her beloved husband Zeke, she must team up with her old flame Jared to find new methods to investigate Callings. Meanwhile, Ben and Saanvi attempt to collaborate with the Registry authorities, which only leads to dire results for the passengers. Miraculously, a mythological event reactivates Cal’s sapphire-laden dragon scar, offering a glimmer of hope for the 828ers to survive the rapidly approaching Death Date. But Angelina’s nefarious sapphire powers continue to wreak havoc, leading to a struggle between good and evil down to their very last day in this most terrifying, suspenseful and joyous chapter of the Manifest story."
