NBC’s disaster drama, “La Brea” has been picked up for a second season.
NBC has renewed the series for a sophomore run after the ratings success of the Natalie Zea-fronted thriller.
The renewal comes as the broadcast network unveiled its midseason schedule Friday.
La Brea stars Zea, Eoin Macken, Jack Martin, Zyra Gorecki, Jon Seda, Chiké Okonkwo, Karina Logue, Veronica St. Clair, Rohan Mirchandaney, Nicholas Gonzalez, Lily Santiago, Chloe De Los Santos and Josh McKenzie.
The series is centered on a mother and son separated from father and daughter after a massive sinkhole mysteriously opens up in Los Angeles.
Typically, networks like NBC and FOX are notorious for canceling sci-fi or fantasy shows that aren’t instant hits. Luckily for La Brea it got just enough eye balls on it to be given a second season.
