The TV series on Rotten Tomatoes received that 80% of the audience likes the first episode. It also obtained a ⅘ rating. It has some mixed reviews but Trey Mangum stated, “It has a lot to say- and its premise is enough to keep you watching to find out what happens”. Kevin Yeoman who writes for Screen Rant stated, “As the season progresses, perhaps it will find a way to develop the characters as well as the mysteries surrounding them, but for the time being, a reason to be genuinely intrigued by Manifest has yet to materialize”.
