'It’s like reuniting with old friends': Stephen King is having gala time binge-watching 'Manifest' on Netflix
'It’s like reuniting with old friends you thought were gone forever,' tweeted Stephen King
Did 'Manifest' creators manifest Stephen King into watching the series on Netflix? As it seems like the genius man is enjoying the Netflix series a lot. The supernatural series about flight passengers who land after severe turbulence only to discover they have all mysteriously been missing and presumed dead for 5 years originally premiered in 2018 on NBC. After three seasons, the network canceled the show, and it became available for streaming on Netflix. After the show's viewership skyrocketed, Netflix picked it up for one more season in 2021. Although the fourth will be the final season, it will air in two parts, with the first recently released on November 4.
The series was met with a mixed response from critics upon its premiere however, fans and particularly superstar fan seems to love the series. The famous author, King, who is well-reputed for his horror, supernatural fiction, suspense, crime, science-fiction, and fantasy novels recently confessed he has been binge-watching the series like any other fan. He has been asking questions while also stating how he feels regarding the series.
Stephen King now shares his enthusiasm for 'Manifest' season 4 on Twitter. In a recent tweet, he praises the show with a twist of his signature sense of humor. In a previous tweet, he wrote, "I’m 6 episodes into MANIFEST (NETFLIX). It’s like reuniting with old friends you thought were gone forever," whereas in a more recent tweet he inquires, "Episode 7 of MANIFEST: Um...is Cal Stone old enough to drink? Just asking."

Episode 7 of MANIFEST: Um...is Cal Stone old enough to drink?— Stephen King (@StephenKing) November 23, 2022
Safe to say, the National Medal of Arts winner has been enjoying it tons, maybe it is also because the genre of the series coincides with the type of fiction King writes. However, if you are wondering who is Cal Stone, he is Ben and Grace's son, Michaela's nephew, Eden's older brother, and Olive's twin brother (he was five and a half years younger than she was when he came back from the disappearance) Cal was a passenger on Flight 828. Ty Doran portrays the character of Cal.
'Manifest' season 4's first ten episodes confirmed that a volcanic apocalypse is imminent. Antagonist Angelina wreaked havoc when she got hold of the Omega Sapphire, with the last episode implying that she may have absorbed its power through a shard. The back half of the season will likely find fan-favorite 'Manifest' characters banding together to prevent the apocalypse and stop Angelina.
'Manifest' season 4, part 2 should also clear up any confusion regarding Zeke's death and, most importantly, the truth behind Montego Airflight 828.
Although, no release date for 'Manifest' season 4, part 2 has been announced by either Netflix or creator Jeff Rake.
