Manifest is currently preparing production for Netflix’s fourth and final super-big season. We’ve known for a while that filming would start in Season 4 in New York, but Episode 1 looks set to get the cameras rolling on November 18, 2021.
We first reported in early October 2021 that multiple production lists stated that production on the new series would begin sometime in November 2021.
However, it appears that progress has been made with new information provided to What’s on Netflix stating that the cameras will start rolling on November 18.
Many of the cast and crew have arrived in New York (where the series is being filmed) in recent days. Some behind-the-scenes crew members have posted photos, including the rigging grip and shooting grip posting that they start setting up.
Again, much of the series will be filmed at Silvercup Studios.
Romeo Tirone is expected to direct Season 4 Episode 1. The director has directed a total of 5 episodes, including Mayday: Part 2, Precious Cargo, Deadhead, Tailfin and Icing Conditions. In addition, Tirone directed episodes of the tick, There was once, Constantine, and FBI: most wanted.
Henry Kim featured in Manifest Season 4
We also know that WB for Netflix has been casting for Henry Kim for the past few weeks and months.
The character is one of the returnees (passengers of flight 828 who miraculously returned years later). He was first mentioned in Episode 11 (Duty Free) of Season 3.
According to Fandom, Kim “will return to Singapore, where he will be held. He undergoes a military tribunal due to fear and suspicion of passengers standing up. He is later executed by the Singaporean government. Michaela Stone learns of his death from Captain Kate Bowers, and his death is one of the deciding factors in her decision to quit her job.”
The cast list that What’s on Netflix has seen states that Henry is “fragile and thin” and “visually impaired”.
It’s worth noting that Murphy’s Multiverse was first to report on the recording date.
Elsewhere, many Netflix regions have yet to receive Seasons 1-3 of Manifest. As we previously reported, some international regions’ rights will expire in November 2021.
