NBC Renews ‘Manifest,’ Cancels 3 Rookies

NBC is firming up the remainder of its scripted lineup. The network on Monday night handed out a third-season to bubble drama Manifest as it also canceled three rookie series: Bluff City Law and comedies Sunnyside and Indebted.

NBC Adds Three Episodes To ‘Manifest’ Order

That brings the show’s Season 1 episode count to 16. Though shows are typically ordered for 22- or 24-episode seasons on broadcast, this is not always the case. For example, NBC’s hit drama This Is Us has aired 18-episode seasons throughout its run.
