Manifest has booked a return trip.
NBC announced on Monday that its top-rated freshman drama will return for Season 2, despite hitting some ratings turbulence toward the end of its 16-episode run. There is no word yet from NBC on a Season 2 episode count.
“In just its first season, Manifest has answered many questions about the mystery of Flight 828 and, smartly, asks many more,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents of scripted programming at NBC. “Congratulations to [series creator] Jeff Rake, our producers, cast and crew who have created an incredibly addictive series with compelling characters and complex relationships.”
