New primeval critters, a percolating love triangle and the introduction of another human threat all figure into Season 2 of NBC’s timey-wimey La Brea.
La Brea began with a massive sinkhole opening in the middle of Los Angeles, pulling scores of people into a dangerous 10,000 B.C. — Eve Harris (played by Natalie Zea) and her son Josh (Jack Martin) among them. As the rest of the “topside” world sought to understand what happened, Gavin Harris (Eoin Macken) and his daughter Izzy (Zyra Gorecki) labored to reunite with the “lost” members of their family.
In La Brea‘s freshman finale, Josh, his sorta-girlfriend Riley (Veronica St. Clair) and a tween named Lily (Chloe de los Santos) were all abruptly pulled into a light portal and transported, we soon learn, into the year 1988.
In Season 2, the Harris family remains separated as Eve is reeling from Josh’s vanishing. What she doesn’t know yet is that Gavin, Izzy and Ella (aka grown-up Lily, played by Michelle Vergara Moore) just landed in prehistoric Seattle, and now must brave the elements (and animals) to make their way to L.A.
TVLine invited showrunner David Appelbaum to share a peek at what to expect when La Brea‘s 14-episode sophomore season (…or at least a chunk of it) premieres this Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 9/8c.
