La Brea, the sci-fi series that premiered on NBC in 2021, has continuously impressed the audience with its gripping storyline and themes of mystery, time travel and de-extinction. The show follows a group of people trapped in 10,000 BC after they are sucked into a sinkhole due to an earthquake in Los Angeles in the 2020s.
The second season of La Brea concluded recently with a two-part finale on February 28. The story of the show is far from over, and there are still a number of questions left unanswered, so fans are eagerly waiting for another season. But has La Brea been renewed for season 3? Read on to find out.
Will La Brea Return with Season 3 on NBC?
Yes, La Brea will definitely return with season 3 as the show has been renewed by NBC. The renewal was announced by the network in January 2023. However, as of now, only six episodes have been ordered. In comparison, seasons 1 and 2 featured 10 and 14 episodes, respectively. NBC has not revealed the reason behind the fewer episodes in season 3.
The filming for the next season is expected to commence in summer this year. Earlier reports suggested that the third season could be the final one for La Brea. But showrunner David Appelbaum has confirmed that he is not planning to end the series with the upcoming season.
As for the release date, La Brea season 3 is expected to premiere in September 2023. The first two seasons debuted on the last Tuesdays of 2021 and 2023, respectively. If the same trend is followed, season 3 will premiere on September 26 this year. However, the official confirmation is awaited from NBC.
What will Happen in La Brea Season 3?
The official synopsis for the third season has not been unveiled yet; however, Appelbaum talked about how he plans to take the story forward in a recent interview. He said, “We have a lot of ideas for where the show could go moving forward. I’ve had ideas for Season 3 for a long time, but we’re starting to map them out.”
“The end of Season 2 leaves us with several cliffhangers, which I do want to give away yet because there is a lot of show for people to watch,” Appelbaum added. Lead star Natalie Zea also teased what to expect from season 3 and said, “Levi is in different time and place doesn’t mean that all the problems are, too.”
“Now [Eve and Gavin] have to actually confront each other about what happened and who’s to blame, who was really wronged and who was wrong. And when you’re doing that alongside creatures and constant death-and-destruction, it adds to the stakes. It adds to the emotional stakes, too,” she explained.
Who will Star in La Brea Season 3?
The show will continue to star Natalie Zea as Eve Harris, Eoin Macken as Gavin Harris, Josh McKenzie as Lucas Hayes, Lily Santiago as Veronica Castillo, Jonno Roberts as James Mallet, Chiké Okonkwo as Ty Coleman, Zyra Gorecki as Izzy Harris and Jack Martin as Josh Harris.
The cast will also include Veronica St. Clair as Riley Velez, Rohan Mirchandaney as Scott Israni, Jon Seda as Dr Sam Velez, Nicholas Gonzalez as Levi Delgado and Tonantzin Carmelo as Paara. The series is produced by Keshet Studios and Universal Television.
