NBC orders more of the drama for 2022.
November 12, 2021
NBC announced today that La Brea has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes after a solid start to the drama, which has been one of this fall's best freshman ratings performers through its first seven episodes.
In the show, a massive sinkhole has opened in the middle of Los Angeles, with hundreds of people pulled down into a mysterious and dangerous primeval land with no choice but to band together in order to survive. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is desperate to understand what exactly happened and what it means. In the search for answers, one family is torn apart, and must work to unlock the secrets of this inexplicable event so they can find a way back to each other.
Look for Season 2 of La Brea as part of NBC's 2022 fall lineup. For now, three episodes remain before the season finale on November 30.
I'm still watching this show but not liking it anymore than when it first came out. I'm too loyal to many mediocre shows that don't deserve it. I'm very surprised it was renewed. So many other syfy shows that were cancelled after season one were so much better than this.
Again really happy that we'll get a season 2 and i hope we'll get a season 3 .
I for one an happy.

People championed it's renewal and got the big f bomb by NBC.
It got saved by Netflix for a final season.
Manifest literally got replaced by La Brea. A woke pile of burning trash! Bad actors, bad cgi, bad writing. Low ratings! Episode 6 had 4.03 million views while ep 7 had 4.70 millon. Scored 38% at rotten tomatoes. The bad acting and cgi are not even the worst parts. It's the predictability of the writers. Spoiler example. How many of you went 3, 2, 1 just before the doctor was sent flying over the cliff? I did. Why? Because it's a suspense trope to kill or severly injure doctors. Also Scott the Anthropology student, the smartest guy in the room - of course we knew he was going to be into Cheech and Chong. Another trope is to make the smartest guy a pot smoker. Most pot smokers I know are dull as dish water and not as bright.
These characters are 'parody' stupid. They know they're in a dangerous place, but instead of building shelter, they run around like they had their eyes plucked out. Online fan fiction has better writers.
I don't care about it being 'woke'. Most of us know someone lgbtq+ or we are lgbtq+. You have to admit the gay couple act like Bert and Ernie. And then they add a lesbian couple, Dr. Sophia and her missing wife/gf.
We get that there are gay people. Gay couples. The point of hate isn't because the characters are gay. It's because the writing dumbed them down where they either need to explain how the met so 'straight' people can understand how being gay works. Or. Add more gay/lesbian couplings to make the first couple less awkward. It's almost painful watching them act this atrocity out.
Instead of writing gay people as 'awkward' and having to explain how and why, try writing them as human beings with lives beyond their sexuality. Do better NBC!!! Btw. I'm bisexual. I just hate how writers/famous people think we have to constantly explain our motivations on how we love or see ourselves and that we need tv or movies to draw a picture to normalize being lgbtq+. Being lgbtq+ is normal. Just write it without having to explain it in awkward dialog.
As is, this won't see season 3. If it does, you know why.
