Manifest NBC’s ensemble mystery sci-fi has added Yasha Jackson and Garrett Wareing for season two.
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.
Jackson will play Suzanne Martin, a Dean at Astoria University and Ben’s (Dallas) ex-girlfriend. They happen to reconnect after running into each other on campus.
Wareing will portray TJ Morrison. Another one of the passengers on Flight 828, TJ Morrison is a college freshman who went to Jamaica for vacation and came back 5 and a half years later. He’s alone in the world and Ben (Dallas) takes him under his wing.
Manifest stars Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina and Parveen Kaur.
No season two premiere date has yet been revealed for the show by NBC.
