The gripping missing plane drama Manifest is FINALLY available to watch in Ireland

It's been one of those shows we've been wanting to watch for ages. 

And now the supernatural missing plane drama Manifest will *finally* be available to watch in Ireland - as of tonight.

The American TV series has drawn a number of comparisons to Lost and The Leftovers since it was released in North America late last year.

The 16-episode first season will debut on Sky One tonight [July 30] at 9pm. It will also be available on streaming service NOW TV.

Manifest tells the story of Montego Air Flight 828 - and its 191 passengers - that goes missing mid-flight only to reappear five and half years later.

But for the rest of their world - including their friends and families - a lot has changed.

Friends and family have given up hope of finding their ‘missing’ loved ones, so they’ve mourned their losses and begun to move on.

But suddenly, everyone has seemingly been given a second chance - and they begin to wonder if a miracle has really happened.

Pretty soon, the mystery starts to unfold and the ‘survivors’ realise that they might be destined for something greater than they ever thought possible.

Manifest stars Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina and Parveen Kaur.

You can check out the trailer below. 

In April, it was announced that Manifest had been renewed for a second season at broadcaster NBC.

Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents of scripted programming, NBC Entertainment, said in a statement to Variety

“In just its first season, ‘Manifest’ has answered many questions about the mystery of Flight 828 and, smartly, asks many more.

“Congratulations to Jeff Rake, our producers, cast and crew who have created an incredibly addictive series with compelling characters and complex relationships.”
