NBC announced today that Manifest will be coming back for a second season. The good news arrives two months following the drama's freshman run, and will surely come as a relief to fans curious to get to the bottom of the show's over-arching mystery.

The hour-long series premiered last September as one of the fall's hottest shows. Through its first four weeks on the air, Manifest ranked as the season's most-watched and highest-rated new series. That strong momentum could not be sustained for the entirety of its run though, as its numbers came down to earth for the back-half of the season.

Manifest 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.

Look for Season 2 of Manifest this fall as part of the 2019-2020 television season.
