On Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, the series got a score of 55 out of 100, indicating “mixed or average reviews.”
USA Today’s Kelly Lawler gave Manifest a positive assessment, explaining how she felt that its simplicity and variety of drama subgenres might help it outlast similarly themed but ultimately unsuccessful past shows. Variety’s Daniel D’Addario commented that the pilot of Manifest didn’t “pretend to have answers; it only poses questions. But its inquisitiveness and willingness to be bold and fairly uncynical given all the things it’s trying to be is more than welcome.” Los Angeles Times’s Lorraine Ali remarked that the series had a compelling premise and that the many mysteries it introduced “point toward a potentially addictive series if Manifest allows its gripping supernatural narrative to rise above its characters’ less interesting personal dramas.”
In a negative review, The Washington Post’s Hank Stuever compared Manifest negatively to other network science fiction series while The New York Times’ Margaret Lyons commented that “Manifest has a frustrating lack of propulsion, a central dullness whose force field is so strong it bends all the interesting parts toward itself.”
