The mystery of Manifest will continue. NBC just announced they’ve ordered a third season of the TV show for the 2020-21 season.
The drama series revolves around the passengers of a routine airline flight that goes missing — and then reappears. The cast includes Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, and Parveen Kaur.
The second season of Manifest averaged a 0.68 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.90 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 45% in the demo and down by 40% in viewership. Nevertheless, the NBC series remained one of the network’s top-rated shows for the 2019-20 season.
