NBC Renews ‘Manifest’ for Season 2

Number of New Episodes Ordered Not Confirmed

As expected, NBC has greenlit scripted drama “Manifest” for a second season, with an unconfirmed number of new episodes. The first season centered on the mysterious return of flight  828 and its passengers who went missing for five years and were pronounced dead. When the flight returned, the passengers hadn’t aged and had no indication any time had passed.

Current Monday 10 p.m. occupant “The Enemy Within,” which stepped in for “Manifest” following its first season-ender, has lost considerable steam in the traditional ratings (and is not expected back for season two).

Season 1 of “Manifest” (airing out of “The Voice”) averaged 12.6 million viewers and a 2.8 rating among adults 18-49, according to “live plus seven day” ratings from Nielsen Media Research. Comparably, that makes it the season’s No. 1 new scripted series in the demo.
