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 (7) | Top Critics (5)

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.

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

September 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Manifest bounces around like a pinball machine with bumpers marked "sinister," "heartbreak," and "redemption," and scores high whichever one it touches.

September 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Overwrought in all the worst ways.

August 14, 2018 | Full Review…

What if Lost, except generic and forgettable?

September 21, 2018 | Full Review…

That's where the show goes from desperate-to-be-inoffensively-vague to unimaginatively wishy-washy. As a viewer who prefers authenticity and specificity, the pilot to Manifest is light on both.
