La Brea season 3 release date, cast, plot, and more news

The La Brea season 3 release date will finally wrap up this confounding sci-fi mystery, and we've got all of the info you need to prepare.

La Brea season 3 release date


This all started with a sinkhole. Two years after La Brea first introduced us to that mysterious event, we’re now dealing with time travel and an enormous conspiracy involving a treacherous past and a horrifying future. We need the La Brea season 3 release date to come around so we can sort all of this chaos out.

We were left on one heck of a cliffhanger at the end of La Brea season 2, with the main characters seemingly trapped in the past. But as we’ve come to expect from one of the best sci-fi series, nothing is as it seems and everything could change in the blink of an eye. The end is nigh for one of the best TV series for those of us who love a bit of time-hopping, so let’s dive into what we know about it so far. Careful it doesn’t fry your brains.

La Brea season 3 release date

La Brea season 3 starts on Tuesday January 9, 2024. So that’s not long at all to wait before this mystery is finally resolved.

The 2023 Writers Strike got in the way of La Brea season 3 and the result of that is we’re getting just six episodes this time around, instead of the 10 episodes for season one and the 14-episode second season.

Deadline reported in January 2023 that NBC cut the episode numbers in advance of the strikes, allowing the actors an early exit from their contracts as the show was due to end prematurely. We now know that the third season will be the last, unless anything major changes again.

In November 2023, we got an official announcement that we’re just a few months away from learning the answers to all of our burning questions. January 2024 is just around the corner, so we’ll start counting down the days

Who’ll be in the La Brea season 3 cast?

The La Brea season 3 cast is expected to be the same as previous seasons. We know all the main characters quite well at this point, and we anticipate everyone who can come back will.

We don’t expect to see the villainous duo of Jonno Roberts and Melissa Neal again. They both play evil scientists working for the Lazarus Project in the future, but both characters were killed off during the chaotic final episodes of season 2.

The La Brea season 3 cast:

  • Natalie Zea as Eve Harris
  • Eoin Macken as Gavin Harris
  • Josh McKenzie as Lucas Hayes
  • Lily Santiago as Veronica Castillo
  • Chiké Okonkwo as Ty Coleman
  • Zyra Gorecki as Izzy Harris
  • Jack Martin as Josh Harris
  • Veronica St. Clair as Riley Velez
  • Rohan Mirchandaney as Scott Israni
  • Jon Seda as Dr. Sam Velez
  • Nicholas Gonzalez as Levi Delgado
  • Tonantzin Carmelo as Paara
  • Michelle Vergara Moore as Ella Jones

What will La Brea season 3 be about?

The La Brea season 3 plot will continue the story of the survivors in 10,000 BC, to see whether they’ll ever be able to get home. At the end of season 2, it seems like the last portal back to the present has been destroyed, while Eve is sucked into some time period in the future.

Two of the characters, Lucas and Veronica are expecting a child, and creator David Appelbaum has talked about how the show will remain centred on the motif of family. “The show at its heart has always been about a divided family that’s trying to get back to each other,” he told NBC. “We’ve done that in a lot of ways both physically and emotionally.”

Given there are only six episodes in La Brea season 3, we’re expecting plenty of answers about the Lazarus Project and the sinkholes. This is one of the best thriller series, so we’re expecting more thrills than we can possibly handle. We can’t wait!

Is there a La Brea season 3 trailer?

There’s no trailer for La Brea season 3, but we’re getting very close to the release date, so we expect to see a first look before the end of 2023.

But if you’re hungry for more prehistoric fun right now, then you can explore the most impressive and dangerous animals we’ve seen in the show so far. Prepare to be terrified!

Where can I watch La Brea season 3?

US fans will be able to watch La Brea season 3 on NBC, while those in the UK will have to rely on Paramount Plus.

On either side of the pond, Amazon Prime Video is there if you want to watch the previous two seasons of La Brea, as the show is not currently airing on NBC.

How many La Brea season 3 episodes will there be?

La Brea season 3 will have six episodes, meaning it’s a shorter season than before as a result of the strikes.

Appelbaum and his team have been hard at work ensuring that the show can come to an end with just a few episodes. There’s a lot of story to get through, so we’d bet that we’re in for something very fast-paced and packed with twists and turns.
