Manifest: Season 1 (2018)



Critic Consensus: Manifest's attempts to balance supernatural mystery and melodrama largely work thanks to its well-chosen cast -- though it could use a few more distinguishing characteristics.

Tv Season Info

When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they're all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible. From Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke comes an emotionally rich, unexpected journey into a world grounded in hope, heart and destiny.

Critic Reviews for Manifest Season 1

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (12)

A good cast sells the improbable hook by at least making it emotionally probable.

Manifest is worth a look, with the proviso that the only way it will last is if enough people see reasons to keep watching.

Self-important much? There's an awful lot of big emotion on this show, which is my polite way of saying that it's pretty soapy... But there's a "Lost"-like mystery afoot that drew me in, as the passengers begin to experience similar after-effects.

It's at least worth watching at least one more. Just in case it does happen to be aliens.

Sep 25, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Think "Lost," but without an island, a smoke monster or donkey wheel. (At least not yet).

Sep 12, 2018 | Full Review…

A conglomerate of several other popular shows past and present, with dialogue so wooden it's a wonder the actors don't get splinters in their mouths while talking.

Manifest doesn't understand its own format and doesn't inspire interest. [Full Review in Spanish]

Feb 28, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

The new mystery for NBC might be the most ridiculous, insane, and laughably bad show of the pilot season, but it will certainly intrigue you to no end.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

There's enough intrigue here to keep watching, but Manifest only has a couple of episodes to get the tone right, or else people will check out.

Sep 25, 2018 | Full Review…

It has a lot to say - and its premise is enough to keep you watching to find out what happens.
