NBC has topped up the drama's freshman run.
October 18, 2018
NBC has reportedly ordered three additional episodes for the first season of Manifest, bringing its total up to 16. The freshman drama premiered last month and is four episodes into its run.
The hour-long series follows the passengers and crew of Montego Air Flight 828, which recently landed safely after being reported missing five years ago. To those aboard, though, it was just a typical flight with a bit of turbulence. With the returned passengers and crew back home, they now face a new reality with a second chance. But a deeper mystery starts to unfold as some of the returned realize they could be meant for something greater.
Through its first four weeks on the air, Manifest ranks as this season's most-watched and highest-rated new series. While today's three-episode top up might seem on the small side - and falls short of a typical full season order - the network's decision likely relates to storytelling reasons as the show is highly serialized.

After 8 seasons, you'll discover that somebody has been dreaming this all the time and that the plane landed safely... This is the end of watching this poor show !

This hasn't lived up to it's potential.

This is just another show like Lost, The Crossing, The 4400, etc., that dumps a bunch of people on us with a big mystery that could be fully explained in just a paragraph. In the end after the big reveal you're left wondering why you watched in the first place.
I watched the episode of this but quickly lost interest.

I'm gonna be pissed if the big mystery is ALIENS.

Everything about this show is a joke, bad acting, bad story line.I truly believe writers just don’t have anything to write about. I tried so hard to watch this but could not do it after the third show just too stupid

There's been 4 episodes.. got ANY answers yet??? Don't be fooled. As someone else posted, as soon as they answer things they have no show.. they'll string it along as far as they can.

I enjoy this show, but fear it will become convoluted quickly. I have watched quite a few shows that start interesting and cool, and quickly fall into predictable stupidity and get cancelled. We will have to see if the writers are more talented than some of their predecessors.

"Lost" just strung viewers along. Very few answers, even at the end, which was terribly contrived. Let's hope "Manifest" holds our interest with some answers and facts instead of just more mysteries. It won't last under those conditions.

I actually thought "Lost" as well.. and well.. they did introduce a pseudo "Smoke Monster" in episode 3.. so.......

Of course it's not Lost (and that's probably a good thing) ! If anything, it's more like The 4400.
