‘Manifest’, the series created by Jeff Rake and starring Melissa Roxburgh and Josh Dallas, will have at least a second season on NBC. After the 16 chapters of its first batch, fiction has managed to convince the chain and has already received the approval to produce new deliveries for its second season. The news has taken longer than expected but NBC has finally announced the renewal of the mystery drama starring Josh Dallas and Melissa Roxburgh for a second season.
The data collected by the Manifest had made it the best fiction premiere of this season for the channel, but its downward course of audiences raised the question of whether NBC would continue to trust it.
Managers Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta have solved it this Monday, confirming that it has been renewed for a second season without yet unveiling how many chapters it will have. They have also congratulated their creator: “We congratulate Jeff Rake, our producers, the cast and the team who have created an incredibly addictive series with compelling characters and complex relationships.”
For the fiction programming co-chairs of NBC in its first season Manifest “has answered many questions about the mystery of Flight 828 and, intelligently, has raised many more questions.”
In its first season, ” Manifest ” has averaged a rating of 2.8 among adults 18-49 and 12.6 million viewers in general, according to Nielsen’s Live + 7 Day ratings. That’s good enough to be the new series of scripts of the 2018-19 TV season in the key demo and No. 6 among total viewers.
The renovation, as we say, was expected for quite some time since ‘Manifest’, which by its premise came under the elongated shadow of ‘ Lost ‘, has been the most-watched new series of the 2018-19 season. The fiction began very strong, with figures that made it the best autumn premiere, and despite the long winter break, it managed to remain the most-watched rookie series among adults between 18 and 49 years.
