The moment that we have all been waiting for: the fate of Manifest. The new series will be back for season 2, and we cannot be more excited! That means more Michaela and Ben, baby-daddy drama and all tons of mystery. We can’t wait to see what transpires when the show returns this fall to NBC!

NBC has renewed freshman dramaManifest for a second season. The exact number of episodes is still TBD, but will likely be a shorter order, which has become customary for serialized series with dense mythology. The first season of Manifestconsisted of 16 episodes.

Clearly influenced by the mystery of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, in Manifest, when Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible.

Manifest stars Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina and Parveen Kaur
