“We certainly expect to be in production this calendar year,” Jeff Rake told Entertainment Weekly. “I’m hopeful that cameras are rolling in November or December latest. We’re going to work as fast as we can while still keeping an eye on quality control, because we want to get episodes to everyone as soon as possible. We also want them to be excellent. It might take a minute for a brand-new batch of episodes to show up in people’s homes, but it’s going to be worth the wait.”
If the show starts filming in late fall of this year, that means “Manifest” Season 4 would most likely start streaming on Netflix in the summer of 2022, based on how streaming TV production calendars usually run. However, we’ll see what happens. Rake said the writers’ room is opening back up this week, so production is still a little ways away. Not all the actors have signed back on yet, but at the moment, Rake is “cautiously optimistic” that they will all return.
In any case, if you live in the New York City area, start looking for “Manifest” filming locations this fall.
