US drama Manifest has been renewed for a second season by NBC.
Created by Jeff Rake, the series follows the passengers of a turbulent flight, who discover that the world has aged five years after landing.
“In just its first season, Manifest has answered many questions about the mystery of Flight 828 and, smartly, asks many more,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming at NBC Entertainment. “Congratulations to [creator] Jeff Rake, our producers, cast and crew who have created an incredibly addictive series with compelling characters and complex relationships.”
The series scored the best premiere rating of any new series in the US this season. Despite a noticeable decline throughout its season it has averaged 6.48 million viewers, rising to 12.6 million viewers in Live+7 days.
Manifest airs in Australia on Nine.
