With the highly-anticipated Manifest Season 3 premiere just days away, we caught up with J.R. Ramirez who plays Jared Vasquez. 

We’ve waited almost a year for new episodes of TV’s biggest mystery, so when we got J.R. on the phone, we didn’t hesitate to ask him all the pressing questions —  well, the ones he could answer, at least — that you’ve been dying to know including how involved Jared is with the Callings this season, what his relationship with Michaela Stone is like now, and if he’ll have a new love interest. 

When the series picks up three months after the Manifest Season 2 finale, Jared’s been “busy,” according to J.R. 

“As you saw at the end of last year, he got a promotion. So he starts the season in full-on cop mode. You know last year we ended with a major death, which was The Major, so you’ll see him right away in full investigation mode trying to figure out what happened and who caused it and all that good stuff,” he explained. 

At the end of the last season, Jared couldn’t bear to watch Mic get married to another man, but what does that mean for their friendship moving forward?

Can two people who once loved each other remain “friends?”

“He’s trying,” J.R. said with a chuckle.

“It kind of shows the resilience and compassion that he has for her and for the family as he stood by and, at the end of the day, watched the love of his life marry another man and have a deeper connection with, which he just, unfortunately, could not have with her,” he added.

“It just really shows his humanity, who he is, and how much she actually truly loves her,” he noted. 

J.R. explained that Jared is still very much involved in Mic’s life and “he’s going to have her back and want to protect her.”

However, he also noted that audiences will see “Jared go through quite a really beautiful arc this year when it comes to the whole Michaela relationship with Zeke and him and the whole triangle stuff.”

He continued: “We’ll get to a nice climax towards the end of it that I think everyone’s going to be really excited to see.”

When asked whether he’s #TeamZeke or #TeamJared, J.R. kept it professional and neutral by confessing that he’s simply “Team Manifest.”

In fact, there may even be a new love interest in Jared’s future.

‘Manifest’ Officially Saved by Netflix For Fourth and Final Season

Manifest Cal Stone Jack Messina Interview

Happy Manifest Day —  Manifest has officially resurrected. 

Much like the passengers of Flight 828, the plane drama has been saved by Netflix for a fourth and final supersized season.

The upcoming season will feature a whopping 20 episodes, and will likely be split into parts.

“Couldn’t let a day as significant as today go uncelebrated. Manifest will officially return for a super-sized fourth and final season, only on Netflix,” the official Twitter page posted. 

The exciting news was announced on August 28, 8/28, better known as Manifest Day. 

“What started years ago as a flight of fancy deep in my imagination has evolved into the jet engine journey of a lifetime,” showrunner Jeff Rake said in a statement. “Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisioned the worldwide outpouring of love and support for this story, its characters, and the team who work so hard to bring it all to life. That we will be able to reward the fans with the ending they deserve moves me to no end. On behalf of the cast, the crew, the writers, directors, and producers, thank you to Netflix, to Warner Bros., and of course to the fans. You did this.”

The cast immediately took to social media to share their excitement!

NBC initially grounded the supernatural drama over the summer following an intense season three finale that left fans with several jaw-dropping cliffhangers. 

We even put together a list of questions that we need answered immediately!

Fans campaigned heavily on social media to save the series, but neither NBC nor Netflix budged, with the latter passing on the drama even after its first two seasons hit and stay at the top spot for several weeks. 

However, fans weren’t backing down, and even some big celebrities began tweeting about their obsession with the show. 

Will ‘Manifest’ Get a Season 4 After All?

Netflix eventually realized that they were making a huge mistake by not picking up the series, and the rest, well, that’s history. 

We’re thrilled the series is getting a second chance at life, just like the passengers.

Now… we’re going to binge-watch the first three seasons until season 4 is ready for takeoff!

Will ‘Manifest’ Be Renewed on August 28?

Manifest Off Radar

Manifest month is officially upon us, but will it bring the good news that we’re all expecting/ hoping for?

Jeff Rake was eager to remind fans about the exciting month on Twitter, which was also accompanied by a countdown to 828.

“26 days until 828. Happy Manifest Month,” he wrote. 

While the tweet seems innocent enough, many fans assumed the showrunner was hinting at the possibility of a renewal being announced on 8/28 (August 28). 

The newfound hope comes as things are looking up for the recently-canceled drama.

Fans (including big household names like Stephen King and Kourtney Kardashian) rallied to save the plane drama after it was canceled at NBC after just three seasons. 

The third season finale left audiences hanging with several major cliffhangers. 

To add salt to the wound, Netflix passed on the opportunity to pick the series up for another season. 

The streaming giant likely should’ve waited to see how the first two seasons of the series would perform on its platform before making any decisions. 

Manifest: 11 Questions We Need Answered

If they had a Calling informing them that the series would stay in the Top 10 for several weeks, they would’ve likely picked up the series. 

With everyone boarding the Manifest train, renewal talks amongst the networks have been restarted.

Rake has been communicating and connecting with fans, old and new, on social media via the #SaveManifest movement. 

At the end of July, the series creator seemed pretty confident that some form of closure — whether it be a fourth and final season or TV movie — was imminent.

Tweeting “if/when the good news comes” means that Rake is likely aware that something big is in the works if all the cards fall into place. 

Since “it’s all connected” on the series, August 28 quite literally lends itself to a brilliant PR/marketing move.

As one Redditor noted, “if this isn’t how we find out then we have a major missed opportunity on our hands.”

While that means we have to wait just a smidge longer for the news, it’ll be all worth it in the end if it means we finally get some much-needed answers.

Your move, NBC or Netflix. Or maybe Roku, the service in talks to give Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist another chance!
