‘La Brea’ will end with its season 3.
La Brea is one of the science fiction series that promised a lot due to its premise with Los Angeles waking up with a huge hole in the ground that caused people to be transported to a mysterious, prehistoric land.
However, it did not convince the critics or the people who gave it a chance by collecting 29% on Rotten Tomatoes from the specialized press and 44% from the audience.
Despite everything, it managed to be renewed for a season 2 and a much shorter season 3 in terms of episodes. But NBC recently announced that the third will ultimately be the last in the series.
This latest installment will be released in the United States on January 9, 2024, and then be available in our country on HBO Max. The news comes almost a year after its renewal, which was announced during the writers’ and actors’ strike.
As reported by Deadline, NBC renewed La Brea for a season 3 composed of only six episodes. Not before talking to the cast to make a much shorter delivery. Because network series typically have a 10-episode minimum guarantee (meaning they must be paid at least 10 episodic fees per season, regardless of how many episodes are produced), the network and studio asked the cast to reduce its contractual minimum.
In exchange for this, The actors were offered to leave the series after season 3, which they accepted, leaving them available to take on other potential jobs. A regular network series contract is for six seasons.
La Brea premiered in 2021 following the story of Eve Harris (Natalie Zea) and her son Josh (Jack Martin) as they and others who had fallen through the mysterious hole in Los Angeles travel through the strange world to which they have been transported.
Meanwhile, on the surface, Eve’s ex-husband Gavin (Eoin Macken) and daughter Izzy (Zyra Gorecki) tried to make sense of what happened, while also wondering how Gavin’s ‘visions’ fit into all of this.
The main cast is completed by Chiké Okonkwo, Veronica St. Clair, Rohan Mirchandaney, Lily Santiago, Josh McKenzie, Tonantzin Carmelo, Michelle Vergara Moore and Nicholas Gonzalez, among others.
