How did Montego Air Flight 828 take off in April of 2013 and, with only a slight jostling from some unexpected turbulence, not land until more than five-and-a-half years later in 2018?

That’s one of many questions that comes up in the new NBC mystery drama, Manifest. The series stars Josh Dallas (Once Upon A Time) and Melissa Roxburgh (Valor) as siblings who were among the 191 survivors to find their lives forever changed by whatever caused the airplane to disappear.

Besides having to readjust to their lives and those people who had moved on, there are more mysterious things (mysterious voices, perhaps) that began to happen for the survivors.

Curious for more? NBC is hooking you up with the first act of the pilot episode — on 8/28 (just like the flight number in the series), which isn’t set to air until September 24 at 10/9c.

Manifest, Series Premiere, September 24, 10/9c, NBC.
