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.

It has taken a long, long time for this show to start to make any sense. I'm glad I held out. Now, that it includes more scenes from 1988 and a hope for some scenes in the 2070s, it has more coherence. It still is not a great show by any stretch and it has taken too long to get to where it is now. But, at least I'm cautiously looking forward to new episodes instead of berating myself for continuing to watch it.

This is just another in a long line of NBC disaster shows with a SF twist that never go anywhere. I could have seen it as a ten episode limited series, but no, they just have to keep playing it out. I can come back in a couple seasons and probably will not have missed a thing.

The show is passable, not as bad as I thought based on the reviews here. But honestly anyone who screams "woke this, woke that." are likely on the wrong side of the subject matter. Regardless of what is woke about the show it doesn't take away from the series itself. I do agree it's basically a repackaged version of Lost which I'm okay with as long as it gets a decent ending. The CGI is pretty bad considering I've seen even the SyFy channel put out better CGI. Kind of shocked it got a 2nd season so soon but hopefully it picks up yet doesn't drag out.

I can't say there's much original about this show once you get past the sinkhole. It also suffers from the "Lost" syndrome, taking too long to get anywhere.

I enjoy this show. Par ( nov 13 2021 ) has a really good point. This show is reminescent of 1980's saturday afternoon movies on the UHF dial. It is similar to THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT, DAMNATION ALLEY, and more.If you don't like it, don't watch it.

@Howard. These reviews are from the renewal announcement. To see your review and others from when the show first came out, just click on the La Brea photo icon on the top left of this page and you'll see the earlier comments. If you click on the renewal announcement you'll see the more recent comments.
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.

I'm really happy that we'll have a season 2. It got the " Lost" vibe a little and i feel there could be a good story to follow along the seasons. The first season is a good start , even if the pace is a little slow, but i'm guesing they are taking their time to establish their story on solid ground.
Again really happy that we'll get a season 2 and i hope we'll get a season 3 .
