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.

Happy 828 Day! Manifest Season 4 Part 1 Premiere Date, Plot Announced

Manifest Wingman Review Season 3 Episode 3

After Manifest got a second chance at life on 828 Day (celebrated annually on August 28) last year — a nod to the show’s Flight 828 — fans have been treated to more exciting information.
 
Last year, the streamer announced that they would be saving the series following its cancelation by NBC, but this year we finally have a premiere date.
 
Attention all Manifesters, we’re now Flight 828 as the first half of season 4 will premiere on November 4, 2022.
 
Since 828 is so meaningful to fans, Manifest Season 4 Part 1 was announced on 8:28 a.m. PT. It will contain 10 episodes with the final 10 premiering at a later date.
 
Check out the new promo art below:
 
 

And here is the official synopsis: “Two years after the brutal murder of Grace turned their lives upside down, the Stone family is in shambles as a devastated Ben continues to mourn his wife and search for his kidnapped daughter, Eden. Consumed by his grief, Ben has stepped down from his role as co-captain of the lifeboat, leaving Michaela to captain it alone, a near impossible feat with the passengers’ every move now being monitored by a government registry. As the Death Date draws closer and the passengers grow desperate for a path to survival, a mysterious passenger arrives with a package for Cal that changes everything they know about Flight 828 and will prove to be the key to unlocking the secret of the Callings in this compelling, mind-bending, and deeply emotional journey.”

WATCH: ‘Manifest’ Season 4 Sneak Peek

WATCH: 'Manifest' Season 4 Sneak Peek from Geeked Week

The fourth and final season of Manifest is on the horizon! 

As part of Geeked Week, Netflix gave fans a first look and the upcoming season.

The clip features Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh), who takes an unsolicited trip to the docks to locate a shipping container decked out in images of cherry blossom.

The shipping container that she needed to locate is glowing, so it’s likely that a vision brought her here.

But when she opens that bad boy up, it doesn’t seem like she knows what she’s looking for at all. In fact, she’s terrified to find a hand reaching for her. The man, who doesn’t seem to be doing well at all, has “Stone 828” carved into his hand. I really hope they aren’t introducing zombies into the mix. 

Netflix knew that they would pique our interest with this snippet, but since we have no other context about the scene, there’s not much to theorize or go off of in terms of what’s happening. 

All we truly know is that the Stone family is doing their best to crack the mystery of what happened to Flight 828 before time officially runs out. 

What do you think about the sneak peek? 

There is no season premiere date just yet, but according to Netflix the final season is “coming soon.” And it was confirmed that it will be released in two batches of 10 episodes.

Manifest Unaccompanied Minors Review

It’s official — Manifest Season 4 is taking off.

Production on the resurrected show has officially begun, and while fans are thrilled, the cast members are flying at high altitudes. 

J.R Ramirez, who plays Jared Vasquez on the drama, shared a glimpse of his first day back on set. 

INTERVIEW: J.R. Ramirez Teases Jared’s Arc on Season 3 of ‘Manifest’

“Walking through the stages this am… Just felt different,” Ramirez wrote on Instagram next to a photo by his dressing room.

“I’ve been working in this business for almost two decades now and I know to land a team of Cast n Crew that is as Collaborative, Dedicated and in my opinion (Most Importantly) “Ego Checked” as these Beautifully Talented Humans are… well it RARELY happens,” he added. 

“It’s only day one and you can already feel the Level of Appreciation this group has for the Magical Ride that is Manifest!” he continued. “But let’s keep it real… The reality is ALL of This Magic is happening because of YOU guys! You guys made this happen! We Love You. Can’t wait for you to see how it all comes together…”

Vazquez is a police lieutenant that often helps the Stone family as they try to figure out the mystery of Flight 828. He’s also Michaela’s former fiancé.

Josh Dallas, who plays Ben Stone, also took to Instagram to mark the beginning of season 4. He posted a photo of the script and Ben’s iconic black-framed spectacles with the caption: “Something’s happening. #mainfest season 4 has begun!! Nothing will be the same.”

Netflix saved the show months after NBC pulled the plug on it despite fan pleas and petitions. 

The streamer renewed the supernatural drama for a fourth and final season to tie up loose ends, give fans closure, and finally reveal the mystery of what actually happened to flight 828. 

It’s unclear when the season will hit Netflix, but it seems like a 2022 premiere could be likely. Dallas also teased: “Coming soon to @netflix#manifest ✈️”
