The skies keep on being benevolent for Manifest. TVLine has discovered that NBC has recharged the powerfully touched family dramatization for a third season. The news comes precisely ten weeks after the airing of the Season 2 finale on April 6.
Through its 13-episode sophomore run, Manifest arrived at the midpoint of directly under a 0.7 demo rating and almost 4 million watchers (in Live+Same Day numbers), down around 40 percent from Season 1. Be that as it may, with Live+7 DVR playback collapsed in, Manifest’s numbers swell to a 1.5 rating and 7.7 million watchers, getting a charge out of as it does probably the best-postponed survey of any NBC program.
Among NBC’s 12 dramatizations airing this television season, Manifest positioned 6th in the demo (behind This Is Us, the #OneChicago trifecta and New Amsterdam), while in the absolute crowd The Boycott additionally slipped in front of it.
Season 2 of the NBC dramatization finished with — SPOILER ALERT! — a semi-inexplicable restoration for one significant character who had appeared to meet his Demise Date, trailed by the uncovering that Flight 828 (or if nothing else part of the plane) has been at the base of the ocean this entire time. That last revelation would “re-trigger the worldwide examination and distrustfulness about Flight 828 and its travelers,” driving the world to ponder who/what are the 828ers, honestly, and energizing “a season-long, science-based, science meets folklore examination.” (Read our total, delicious posthumous here.)
