By now, you’ve probably heard at least a little bit about the new NBC hit, La Brea. The series, which focuses on a group of modern day people as they fall into a ginormous sinkhole in Los Angeles and then have to survive in 10,000 B.C., became a blockbuster hit for the network immediately upon its debut back at the end of September.  

The show wrapped its first season with a number of cliffhangers and questions we want answered for Season 2, so, if you’ve been wanting to check out the sci-fi mystery (or are already wanting to revisit all of the action), now is a very good time to get caught up. Luckily, we have a handy guide below that will let you know just where you can watch La Brea streaming, as well as some options for mysterious shows like it for you to check out, once your binge is over. Let’s get to it!

Where Is La Brea Available Streaming?

In what is some very good news for those of you who like to have options when it comes to streaming, especially if you’re not someone who subscribes to every streaming service in the known world, La Brea can be found streaming on a few different platforms. First and foremost, the science fiction show is on Peacock, where you can also find a number of other current (and past) popular shows from NBC, like Parks and Recreation, New Amsterdam, and all of Dick Wolf’s One Chicago lineup.

If you want to watch it on Hulu right now, the show is currently only available if you have a Live TV subscription add-on. This appears to mean that you will only be able to view new episodes as they air weekly, and won't be able to go back and see the first season if you find yourself without a Peacock subscription. If the NBC-heavy streamer isn't an option for you, the full first season is also ready to stream on, completely for free, and you don’t even have to log in with a service provider to watch. However, with the arrival of Season 2, the episodes that make up the freshman season will no longer be available as of September 28.

Will La Brea Be On Netflix?

I know that it seems like everything ends up on Netflix, but ‘tis not the truth, my friends. Unfortunately, this drama will not be gracing the grandaddy of all streamers with its presence at any point in the near future. But, seeing as there is already one long-term streaming option for Season 1, you shouldn’t have to miss out just because you can’t revisit, oh, I don’t know, Manifest, and then immediately switch over to La Brea on the same streamer.

Other Shows Like La Brea Available Streaming

What’s that you say? You’ve watched all of La Brea twice and now need some shows like it to tide you over in between Season 2 episodes? Well, look no further! While there are several series on streaming that focus on people surviving in harsh environments and / or trying to figure out what the hell is going on while trying to get back home, there are three obvious choices for you to watch right now. 

The aforementioned Manifest would have been a network mate with La Brea, had the show not been unceremoniously cancelled by NBC. But! You can watch the first three seasons on Netflix, where the show will be getting Season 4 before too long. Also, even those behind this series know that it's somewhat similar to Lost, as they made sure to name-check the crashed airplane classic in the pilot, so you can’t go wrong there. And, while The 100 is one of the best dystopian TV shows, it hits a lot of the same survival notes as the sinkhole-filled favorite and should scratch that same itch for a lot of viewers. Happy streaming!
