La Brea was a surprise hit for NBC when the first season premiered earlier this year. Since then, there have been few updates on the future of the series. Despite this, the showrunners of the series have been voicing their plans for a second season ahead of Tuesday’s hotly-anticipated season one finale.
Will there be Le Brea season two?
La Brea is a science-fiction series that centres on a mysterious sinkhole that appears in Los Angeles.
The entire show focuses on the mystery of the unusual event, with intersecting characters struggling to survive from inside and outside of the catastrophe area.
Of course, the first season left numerous questions unanswered, with some major cliffhangers clearly winking at the potential of a second season.
NBC has confirmed a second season and the showrunners of the series have some big plans for it.

Speaking at Saturday’s Comic-Con Special Event [via Deadline], Executive Producer David Appelbaum teased what could happen in season two.
Applebaum explained: “We’re going to be putting characters in different worlds moving into season two.
“There are going to be a lot of unexpected surprises that will happen at the end of the finale that is going to put our characters in a lot of different places.
“But also, we’re going to retain a lot of what we saw in season one.”
The showrunner then explained how many of the characters will remain in the vast clearing in the second season.
They will be trying to figure out how to survive down in the pit.
However, Appelbaum did say that one of the main goals of “future seasons is to expand what the show can be”.
Joining Appelbaum on the Comic-Con panel were stars Natalie Zea, Eoin Macken, Jon Seda, Chiké Okonkwo, and Nicholas Gonzalez and co-showrunners Steven Lilien, and Bryan Wynbrandt.
Appelbaum said: “One of the great things about this show is that we had a really long gestation period.
“We had basically over a year of thinking and planning… that gestation period really allowed us to come up with all these great twists and turns in a way that a lot of network shows never really have the ability to do.”
No release date for season two has been confirmed, though it will likely release in 2022.
Appelbaum’s statements also suggest the showrunners are planning multiple follow-up seasons, so there is plenty for fans to look forward to.
La Brea concludes on November 30 on NBC in the USA. A UK release date is unconfirmed.
