What's On TV: 'Manifest' - new show debuts Monday, September 24

"Manifest" premieres tonight. Returning to New York from a family vacation in Jamaica, the Stone family is separated when adult siblings Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh) and Ben (Josh Dallas), along with Ben's gravely ill son Cal (Jack Messina), are bumped to a later flight, while Ben's wife, daughter and parents fly ahead. When that later flight lands, the passengers are bewildered to discover that five and a half years have gone by. They attempt to reconnect with the loved ones who mourned their passing and moved on long ago, and try to make sense of a mystifying phenomenon steering them to act in ways they don't understand. Also starring Athena Karkanis (Grace Stone), J.R. Ramirez (Jared Vasquez), Luna Blaise (Olive Stone) and Parveen Kaur (Saanvi Bahl).

 The series might appeal to "Lost" fans but many may be leery to invest in a show might not reveal its twist until later in the season or maybe even season two. Also if there isn't a season 2, they may never find out what happened to the plane and to the people on board.
