Manifest fans have waited almost a year to learn more about what happened to Flight 828 and the passengers. 

And we’re getting closer than ever! 

Ahead of the Manifest Season 3 premiere, TV Fanatic spoke to Parveen Kaur, who plays Saanvi Bahl, an 828 passenger and medical researcher.

With a season that promises more answers than questions, Parveen confirms that a major answer does come to the surface that describes as both “emotional” and “meaningful.” 

Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait to see how the season plays out to know exactly what she’s referring to. 

Check out our full Q+A with Parveen below:

At the end of season 2, Saanvi killed The Major. How does that affect her moving forward?

Well, she obviously carries the weight of that going into season 3. The season picks up about 3 months later, so it’s still relatively very fresh and she’s carrying a lot of that paranoia. 

She’s kind of constantly looking over her shoulder waiting for someone to show up and say, “Hey, we know what you did. Your life is over, and you’re gonna go to prison.”

She’s carrying a lot of fear… and more importantly a lot of guilt because that’s not who she is, you know.

And it’s someone she thought that she would never become, and I think, obviously, it was an accident, of course, but she’s done something very out of character, so she’s dealing with a lot of stuff going into season 3 even outside of the plane.

When the season kicks off, has she told anyone else about what happened, or is Vance the only one that knows?

Vance is the only one that knows. 

So she can’t talk to anyone about it!

She has no one! So, she’s almost like a walking volcano that’s just waiting to erupt. I mean, to keep something like that inside would be very, very challenging, which we see; We see her go through that arc in the season.

In the season 3 trailer, we see Jared holding a photo of The Major… what can you tell us about that, if anything! 

There seems to be a little overlap with Jared and Saanvi… I don’t know how much more I can go in, but there is certainly overlap with those two characters in some capacity. 

And we haven’t seen them work together that much… so that’s exciting!

Yeah, I mean it’s really great cause I never get to work with J.R. as Saanvi and Jared. We’ve had maybe one scene together, so yeah, I’m excited for people to see that.

It feels like a crossover from different shows with how little we’ve worked together. I’m always in the hospital, he’s always in the precinct, so we are going to see those characters’ paths cross.

Saanvi also eliminated the Callings, how does that change things for her?

She and Vance start working together, so it doesn’t change anything in terms of how she’s working and to what capacity.

It doesn’t really affect her until later on in the season, but I don’t want to say how because I can’t give that away, but in terms of how she’s trying to solve it, it doesn’t affect her.

She has a lot of skills, and then later on we realize that there are consequences to her not getting the Callings. That happens later in the season.

‘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?

Published

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!
