What to Expect From The Storyline of La Brea Season 2?
The first season ended with the death of Marybeth, Gavin, and Izzy going back in time to 10,000 B.C. through a swallow-hole near Seattle. This means that the second season will continue the story from where it left off.
Speaking to Deadline, showrunner David Applebaum revealed “Well, one of the things we really wanted to do with the finale was set up a lot of cliffhangers and possibilities for Season 2. You know, with Josh and Riley going through the light, revealing the building, the death of Marybeth, and Gavin, and Izzy coming down the sinkhole, we’re really trying to set up these new potentials for Season 2, and putting people on new journeys, to reveal some new mysteries.”
When Deadline asked about the prospect of the show Applebaum responded: “We do have in mind an endpoint and have a lot of important signposts along the way to get there. But, we haven’t really tried to pin ourselves down to a specific number of seasons to get there. Personally, I think it’s the kind of show where we can keep expanding what the world is. I definitely think it has the potential for a long run.”
Nevertheless, there are plenty of interesting plotlines to explore, mainly the backstory of most of the characters and not forgetting about Gavin’s past which needs to be explored.
