As for the new shows, the “Manifest” will also be in the Indigo Ballroom and there will be a pilot screening and Q&A session. When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely in New York 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.
Fans can speak with executive producer Jeff Rake (“The Mysteries of Laura,” “The Tomorrow People”) and series stars Melissa Roxburgh (“Valor,” “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” movies), and Josh Dallas (“Once Upon a Time,” “Thor”). “Manifest” premieres Monday, Sept. 24, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC and is produced by Warner Bros.
