*“’Manifest’ is about a plane that goes missing for five and half years. There’s no trace of it – life moves on. All of a sudden the plane lands again,” said Josh Dallas, who plays Professor Ben Stone who the “Manifest” series follows as he and his son return to a world that is five and half years older. The second season of the supernatural drama “Manifest” airs January 6, 2020 on NBC.
Ben (Dallas) and his wife Grace Stone, played by Athena Karkanis (“Total Drama”), have twins – a girl and boy. Their son Cal Stone, played by Jack Messina, was on the plane with Ben and his twin Olive Stone, played by Luna Blaise, stayed home and is now five and half years older.
“I play Ben Stone, a passenger on the plane who comes back…his wife has moved on,” Josh said about what we can expect on season two of “Manifest.” “He has twins. The girl stayed behind and is grown…his son, who was dying of cancer…now there’s a cure.”
Created by Jeff Rake, who is also co-executive producer, “Manifest” premiered its first season in 2018 with 16 episodes. It also stars Michaela Stone, played by Melissa Roxburgh (Star Trek Beyond), who is Ben’s sister – an NYPD detective.
“It’s a story about second chances,” Dallas said. “We follow the Stone family through their entire journey of 2nd chances. So the passengers are experiencing things that are very unusual. I think these passengers are going to find out their destiny is greater than they can imagine.”
Josh Dallas’ acting credits include ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” Marvel’s comic film Thor as Fandral and “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”. He has garnered a Teen Choice Award nomination in 2012 as “Breakout Male.” www.NBC.com/Manifest
