During the joy that is New York Comic Con, NBC released a trailer for the upcoming second season of ‘Manifest,’ which is meant to air starting sometime in Spring 2020.  The show’s synopsis follows:

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, Jack Rapke, Jeff Rake and Jackie Levine comes an emotionally rich, unexpected journey into a world grounded in hope, heart and destiny.

Season 1 ended with the sudden death of Captain James Griffin, which led Ben to conclude that all the other passengers also have “death dates” and that they are simply fated to die after the same number of days that they were missing from the timeline.  Cal confirmed his theory by showing a drawing of his, Ben, and Mick’s tombstones showing a death date of June 2, 2024.  Grace told Ben that she’s pregnant, but possibly with Danny’s baby, and Michaela arrived at her home just in time to see Jared struggling with Zeke as a gun went off.

Who lived, who died, who will die, is there any way to beat the death date?  There are a lot of issues for season 2 to reveal and it’s hoped that all these cliffhangers are resolved well.  Season 2 welcomes staff members Leah Gibson (known from ‘Jessica Jones’), Carl Lundstedt (‘Cloak & Dagger’), and Yasha Jackson (‘Blue Bloods’).
