Have No Fear, Manifest Is Officially Coming Back for Season 2

Fans won't be left on that cliffhanger

Keisha Hatchett

Manifesters, you no longer have to worry about the fate of the passengers of Flight 828. NBC revealed Monday that Manifest has been renewed for Season 2.

A cross between Lost and This Is Us, the enigmatic drama centers on the overarching mystery of a flight that suddenly re-emerges after having been missing for five and a half years. Among the passengers is Ben Stone (Josh Dallas), whose return uproots the lives of his grieving family. As he and the rest of the confused civilians readjust to everyday life, they quickly discover that they're all linked by a phenomenon known as the Calling, which appears in different ways; in some cases it's a voice in their heads, while in others it's an irresistible urge.

Season 1 ended on a major cliffhanger with Jared (J.R. Ramirez) and Zeke (Matt Long) caught in a violent altercation that ended with a gun going off just as Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) made her way up the stairs. Since the show has plenty of other question to answer, like whether or not the passengers are actually living on borrowed time, the Season 2 renewal brings some much-needed relief.

Showrunner Jeff Rake previously told TV Guide, "In Season 2, you can expect to meet more passengers from the plane, other people who are experiencing the Calling, others who are not experiencing the Calling but are still inherent to our story in different ways."

The episode count for Manifest's second season has not yet been announced.
