The series is about a commercial airplane that mysteriously disappears, only to re-appear five years later. While no time has passed for those onboard, the world has gone on without them, and new mysteries unfold for the passengers as they seek to find answers as to how and why their plane disappeared years ago.

“In just its first season, Manifest has answered many questions about the mystery of Flight 828 and, smartly, asks many more,” Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents scripted programming at NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. “Congratulations to [creator] Jeff Rake, our producers, cast and crew who have created an incredibly addictive series with compelling characters and complex relationships.”

Though it earned generally mixed reviews from critics, the first season was a runaway hit with audiences intrigued by the mystery of Flight 828 and the drama surrounding their lives upon return. The pilot, which premiered in September 2018, drew the highest premiere numbers for any new series in the fall and continued to average approximately 12.61 million viewers every week, landing at second for overall viewers just behind CBS’ hit freshman drama FBI.
