Season 3 Manifesto Poster Reveals New 828, Says “The Truth Will Come Out”
The poster for season three of NBC’s manifesto is based on Flight 828’s (apparently?) Water grave and shows the main characters peering into the water in the hope that “the truth will emerge.”
Below is the season three poster – if you turn it upside down, be careful with your laptop! – also reveals the new character of Angelina, an 828 passenger, played by Holly Taylor from the Americans. (As noted in a recent Inside Line column, the first time we meet Angelina is in the opening minutes of the new season, and that’s not under the best of circumstances.)
In the spirit of the Truths Coming to Light, showrunner Jeff Rake told TVLine at a recent press event that really big things are going to happen in Season 3 of 13 episodes, which airs on Thursdays at 8/7 a.m. (April 1).
“I think the crowd will be happy that this is a very eventful season,” he said. “I know that in season 1 or season 2 the show was sometimes lovingly accused of not moving the ball forward enough that the burn was too slow. My strongest suspicions are that Season 3 is not blamed. There’s a lot of forward momentum, lots of card revolutions, and lots of big surprises. It will be a very satisfying experience for people who are anxious for something to happen. “
