One of primetime’s most imaginative series returns for its sophomore season. La Brea season 2 continues the story of the Harris family and other survivors after their lives have been torn apart. 

A giant sinkhole opening up in the middle of a busy Los Angeles community is enough in itself, but when the sinkhole is actually a portal to a primeval world, it’s a whole new ballgame. The biggest challenge is that the survivors have been ripped away from those they love and they’ll do anything to be reunited again. 

La Brea has been renewed for a third season at NBC, which means that there will be more stories to come in the show's future. 

Here’s what we know about La Brea season 2.
