Netflix shares the trailer for Season 4 of ‘Manifest’

Season 4 of the former NBC series ‘Manifest’ will debut on Netflix this November, and the streaming service has dropped the trailer for the shows’ final season.

The show wrapped up its third season on NBC before its cancellation, leaving viewers with a cliffhanger. The mystery around the passengers of Flight 828 and their five-year disappearance had fans petitioning for the reversal of its cancellation, which then led to a switch to Netflix.

The final fourth season will be split into two 10-episode parts by the streamer and will feature a two-year time jump from the end of the previous season.  The passengers of the flight are now 18 months away from their death dates, and since the passengers of the flight were considered dead during their disappearance, they will also face a second death on June 2, 2024.

Part 1 of Manifest Season 4 will premiere on Netflix on Nov. 4, 2022, with part two premiering at a later date to be determined. Take a look at the trailer – here.

Dead & Company announce their final tour in 2023

Dead & Company has shared that they will be embarking on their final tour in 2023, with next summer’s trek to be their final tour after eight years together. The band wrote on social media: “As we put the finishing touches on booking venues, and understanding that word travels fast, we wanted to be the first to let you know that Dead & Company will be hitting the road next summer for what will be our final tour. Stay tuned for a full list of dates for what will surely be an exciting, celebratory, and heartfelt last run of shows.” Further details will be shared as they become available.

Drummer Bill Kreutzmann shared his thoughts about the end on social media: “The Grateful Dead always felt timeless from our very beginnings at the acid tests where ‘time’ did some funny things so we left it behind altogether. This music will always exist, always evolve, always be the soundtrack of our ever changing lives. But the form changes. It always has, from when we invited Mickey to join the band to the many shapes and forms it took after [frontman] Jerry [Garcia] left us. And so it’s almost time for another change. I have loved this chapter with Dead & Company, as we got to explore the music with some new interpreters and different antennas, but we always knew it was just a chapter. The Music never stops. I hope you’ll join us for one final Dead & Company tour next summer and after that… as always… I’m really excited about what comes next. Thank you all for being with us on this journey. It’s far from over so keep those seat belts on because we’ve got some wild nights ahead.”

Dead & Company was formed in 2015 when the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir joined forces with artist and musician John Mayer, Allman Brothers’ bassist Oteil Burbridge, and Fare Thee Well and RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti.  The band has completed six tours since its formation, playing to 3.4 million fans, and becoming a record-breaking stadium act. The band has grossed $255.5 million and sold 2.8 million tickets across 149 reported shows.

Red Hot Chili Peppers release Eddie Van Halen tribute song “Eddie”

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are honoring the late Eddie Van Halen with a tribute song to the late Van Halen guitarist, titled “Eddie.”

RHCP singer Anthony Kiedis wrote in an Instagram message: “Sometimes we don’t realize how deeply affected and connected we are to artists until the day they die. Eddie Van Halen was a one of a kind. The day after his death Flea came into rehearsal with an emotional bassline. John, Chad and I started playing along and pretty soon with all our hearts, a song in his honor effortlessly unfolded. It felt good to be sad and care so much about a person who had given so much to our lives. In the end, our song asks that you not remember Eddie for dying but for living his wildest dream.” Van Halen’s son, Wolfgang Van Halen, replied to the emotional post with a trio of heart emoji.

The tribute to the rock icon, who died in Oct. 2020, is the second track from the band’s upcoming Return of the Dream Canteen album (due out Oct. 14), following the single, “Tippa My Tongue.”

Child sex abuse lawsuit against Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears is dismissed at plaintiff’s request

The lawsuit filed against Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears that accused the comedians of sexual battery, sexual harassment and sexual abuse of a minor has been dismissed.  The lawsuit. which was filed in late August by a 22-year-old woman and her minor brother (identified as Jane and John Doe), was dismissed at the request of the plaintiff.

Spears took to Instagram to address the lawsuit’s dismissal, sharing a screenshot of the news with the caption “I hope y’all keep that same energy.”  Haddish’s representative Cesidia Carosa also provided a photo of the notice of dismissal, adding that it was filed “with prejudice,” meaning the plaintiffs will be unable to file the same claims against Haddish or Spears again.

Jane and John Doe alleged in the lawsuit that they were both assaulted by Haddish and Spears in Los Angeles several years ago when they were minors, claiming Haddish was a “longtime family friend” of their mother. The lawsuit described several instances of grooming and molestation by Haddish and Spears, such as when the comedians worked with the plaintiffs on a “Funny or Die” project about eight years ago that was sexually suggestive. In a statement posted to Instagram Sept. 5, Haddish said that while there was very little she could say on the legal matter, she deeply regretted taking part in the “Funny or Die” skit. writing, “Clearly, while this sketch was intended to be comedic, it wasn’t funny at all.”

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiffs’ mother previously attempted to work out a $15,000 settlement with Spears over the video of John Doe but was unsuccessful. The suit did not specify the monetary value the plaintiffs were seeking. Spears’ attorney Debra Opri called the lawsuit a “shakedown”, while Haddish’s lawyer Andrew Brettler called the plaintiff’s previous claims of abuse “bogus.” Brettler said: “Every attorney who has initially taken on her case – and there were several – ultimately dropped the matter once it became clear that the claims were meritless and Ms. Haddish would not be shaken down.”
