Fasten your seatbelts, because there's going to be some major turbulence in Season 2 of Manifest. On Thursday, NBC released new photos of the second season, which premieres Jan. 6, and the images suggest that Ben (Josh Dallas) and Grace (Athena Karkanis) are in for one long and difficult road ahead.

As you'll recall, Grace revealed that she was pregnant at the end of last season, and that should have been cause for celebration. But she and Ben quickly realized there's a good chance that Grace's ex-boyfriend Danny (Daniel Sunjata) might be the father of her unborn child, which certainly complicates things. That tension is on full display in the sneak peek photos, which you can check out below.

Here's Everything We Know About Season 2 of Manifest

Between this baby bombshell and the proposed death date alluding to the Flight 828 passengers living on borrowed time, it's safe to say Ben and Grace will have their hands full next season. Despite these obstacles, however, showrunner Jeff Rake has promised that the season will showcase the strength of their bond.

"We're going to discover that this a very resilient marriage, and, notwithstanding all of the drama that we throw at them, the power of the love between them just kind of overcomes the odds," Rake teased to TV Guide during New York Comic Con.
