Apart from those two options, there’s no other way to watch the show in the US. Peacock is available on browser and through a mobile app. Peacock services are available on a subscription basis, through which you can access unlimited original and other popular movies, series, live shows, and more.

What Is La Brea Season 2 About?
La Brea is a survival story with a strong sci-fi angle, set on the La Brea Tar Pits, an active paleontological research site in urban Los Angeles. The series follows an unexpected phenomenon where a massive sinkhole opens up at the site and sucks in hundreds of people, buildings, vehicles, etc. But that’s not all. The sinkhole turns out to be a portal to another world, rather than to the primitive version of our world. The Harris family gets torn apart by the event, along with many other survivors who must try to first manage to live in this strange world and then find a way out and reunite with their respective loved ones. This strange group of people also needs to stick together to be able to survive the mysterious and dangerous elements of the prehistoric world.
Throughout the first season, people investigate the event and discover that they have landed in 10,000 BC at the same location. The second season will most likely answer all the burning questions that the first season ended with. By the end of Season 1, we see some members of the Harris family end up at different timelines. For instance, Josh lands in 1988, while Gavin and Izzy find themselves in a prehistoric version of what would be Seattle. In some ways, La Brea is a family adventure drama with time travel, primitive earth, and strange occurrence, but with a dose of graveness and fear attached to the plot. With any luck, Season 2 will be raising the stakes further so expect more family drama and weird sci-fi madness.
