Cal recast in Manifest season 4

From Manifest’s opening season, the role of Cal Stone had been played exclusively by Jack Messina.

However, fans tuning in to watch season 4 on Netflix are being greeted with a new and older version of Cal, now played by Ty Doran, after the character was aged up.

While some fans may believe this recast is new for season 4, the actors actually changed in the final episode of season 3.

In the episodes Mayday Part 1 and 2, young Cal touched the tailfin of Flight 828 which caused him to disappear, only to return as an adult version of himself now played by Doran to be with his mother Grace as she died.

As the story continues in season 4, it becomes clear through flashbacks that Cal had aged five and a half years by touching the tailfin, although he has no memory of his disappearance.
