‘Manifest’ Season 3 Poster Teases the Tailfin Mystery: “The Truth Will Surface”

If you’ve spent the past year wondering what happened to Flight 828, you’re not alone.

But it looks like Manifest Season 3 will begin to divulge some answers and unravel the mystery. (At least we hope so.)

NBC released the first poster for the upcoming third season – which premieres on April 1, 2021 (no, not an April Fools joke) – and it focuses heavily on the tailfin fished out of the water in the final moments of Manifest Season 2.

For those that need a little refresher, a tailfin from a Montego Air flight was found by the fishermen in a massive body of water indicating that the flight that we saw land at the kickstart of season 1 did, in fact, crash five years ago.

Understandably, this raised so many questions… on top of the questions we already had. How did the plane return if it crashed? How are the passengers alive? Are the passengers even the passengers?

The season 3 poster focuses heavily on the tailfin and features the tagline: “the truth will surface.”

With that in mind, it’s safe to assume that the season will seemingly address the mystery of the tailfin and how it ended up underwater as it connects to Flight 828.

Show creator Jeff Rake seemed to confirm this by explaining: “From literally the opening shot of Season Three, we’ll see the Tailfin lure our heroes even deeper into the mystery of Flight 828.”

Of course, the first episode of season 3 is aptly titled “Tailspin.” Is that a hint that the plane dived into the ocean?

Or will the episode and the mystery take us on a whirlwind of a descent?

And while no synopsis is provided for now, there is this photo of Josh Dallas who plays Ben Stone.

That’s a very tropical outfit for Ben, wouldn’t you say?

The mystery of the tailfin thickens because since Flight 828 landed five years after it took off from Jamaica, there’s no reason for it to be underwater.

Plus, we saw the plane explode in front of all the passengers when they received a collective “calling.”

There have been several theories about the existence of the tailfin, however. 

There’s a chance that the tailfin could belong to a decoy plane used by the government since we know they’re involved. Could this be what exposes them?

Maybe they wanted people to think that the plane sunk and took the real thing to inspect? But the government wouldn’t be reckless enough to dump the real thing in the ocean, would they?

‘Manifest’ Season 3 Teaser Focuses on Tail Fin in the Water – What Happened to Flight 828?

Users pointed out that when the plane exploded, it didn’t actually show the tailfin getting destroyed, so it’s possible it was dumped into the ocean to destroy evidence.

However, another interesting point is that the tailfin being pulled out of the water and the one from the exploding plane look different. It could be another side of the fin, it could be a filming continuity error, or it might not be the same tailfin at all. 

Personally, I think it looks like it would be from an older model aircraft, so maybe it’s from a plane that crashed prior?

I’m into the theory that it’s from an alternate reality, but the fishermen are fully aware that Flight 828 returned, so we know that this timeline exists alongside the passengers and in the same dimension.  

Rake had this to say about the tailfin if it offers you any insight: “We saw that plane land in New York. We saw that plane blow up on the tarmac at the end of the pilot. So how can a plane have landed and been exploded and then also be found at the bottom of the ocean? Once the entire world finds out about this tailfin, that’s going to re-trigger the global scrutiny and paranoia about Flight 828 and its passengers.” 

Could it be that the passengers aren’t even real? Rake has considered it: “Does this mean that the passengers are not the passengers? And if they’re not the passengers, who are they? That’s going to be a season-long, science-based, science meets mythology investigation. For those who have been feeling that the episodes have become a little science-light or investigation-light, they have a lot of good material coming down the pike.”

Clearly, there’s plenty of avenues for the series to take here. 

Hopefully, the season gives us some answers to the central mystery at the core of NBC’s most thrilling series.

We’ll see you back here on April 1!

When Does 'Firefly Lane' Season 2 Come Out?

The wait is almost over! 

Netflix is allowing fans to reunite with the Firefly Lane girls on December 2, 2022!

FireFly Lane Season 2 Part 1 will debut on Friday at 12 a.m. PT (3 a.m ET and 2 a.m. CT) on the streaming service, and while that may be very late in the night, the good thing is you’ll have all weekend to catch up with Tully (Katherine Heigl) and Kate (Sarah Chalke). 

 

Why Is Kate Mad at Tully at the End of Firefly Lane Season 1?

The biggest question on everyone’s mind is why is Kate so mad at Tully. At the end of the first season, it’s revealed that Kate’s father, Bud, died, but when her best friend Tully arrives at the church, Kate tells her that she has “some nerve showing up here.” Season 2 Part 1 will hopefully answer what led to the rift between Kate and Tully in 2004/2005.

 

How Many Episodes in Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 1?

The season will have a total of nine episodes. 

Part 2 of the season is set to arrive sometime in 2023 with episodes 10 through 16. 

 

Who Died on Firefly Lane Season 1?

Bud, Kate’s father, passed away in the first season. Kate and Tully are at his funeral when it’s revealed that they are not on speaking terms anymore despite a decades-long friendship.

 

Firefly Lane Season 2 Cast

The key cast of the upcoming second season includes:

  • Katherine Heigl – Tully Hart
  • Sarah Chalke – Kate Mularkey
  • Ali Skovbye – ’70s Tully Hart
  • Roan Curtis – ’70s Kate Mularkey
  • Ben Lawson – Johnny Ryan
  • Beau Garrett – Cloud/Dorothy Hart
  • Yael Yurman – Marah
  • India de Beaufort – Charlotte/Charlie
  • Greg Germann – Benedict Binswagner
  • Jolene Purdy – Justine Jordan
  • Ignacio Serricchio – Danny Diaz

 

Firefly Lane Season 2 Synopsis

What could possibly have ended the tight-knit thirty year friendship of Tully and Kate, our “Firefly Lane Girls Forever?” We’ll learn the answer this season — but first — Kate grapples with the painful aftermath of Johnny’s ill-fated trip to Iraq, while Tully faces a lawsuit after walking away from her talk show, and must start her career over from the bottom. This leads her to search for answers about who she is and where she comes from — including a quest to find the father she never met, against the wishes of her secretive hippie mother, Cloud. In the ’80s, we see Kate and Johnny first fall in love, creating more than a little drama in the newsroom where they work, as Tully’s career rises and she spars (and flirts!) with cocky sportscaster Danny Diaz. She just might have met her match — that is, if they can stop arguing for five minutes. While in the ’70s, teenage Kate and Tully struggle to keep their friendship together as Cloud goes to jail for dealing drugs and Tully goes to live with her grandmother, far away from Firefly Lane. As the girls face the tumult of high school apart, they know the one thing they really need is each other.

‘Emily in Paris’ Season 3—Premiere Date and Trailer

When Is Season 3 of Emily in Paris Coming Out?

Netflix is giving Emily in Paris fans the best holiday gift of all—a brand new season. 

The third season of the Paris-set dramedy is set to premiere on Wednesday, December 21. 

New shows are typically released globally at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time. 

Fans can also unwrap an early gift as the streamer just dropped the trailer for the new season, which reveals Emily Cooper (Lily Collins) is pulling double-duty in both her professional and personal life.

Her indecision has left her in a bit of a mess, as she’s now juggling two jobs—her old gig with Madeline (Kate Walsh) and a gig at Sylvie’s new agency (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu). On top of it, her heart is also being pulled in two different directions as she’s torn between chef Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) and businessman Brit Alfie (Lucien Laviscount). 

And based on the 2-minute trailer, her decisions will have plenty of consequences. 

But don’t think that Emily isn’t carving out time for prioritizing life, as Parisians do, as she informs her gal pal Mindy (Ashley Park) that she’s all about “life” right now.

The work-life balance includes stunning vacations (and a balloon ride),  incredible outfits, plenty of champagne, and much more.

As the trailer suggests, choose Paris… on December 21!
