La Brea is mere days away from returning for its long-awaited second season at NBC, but while fans wait for the September 27th premiere, the stars are giving us an exclusive first look behind the scenes.

In a sneak peek featurette, above, cast members Jon Seda, Jack Martin, Rohan Mirchandaney, and Lily Santiago are pulling back the curtain on production, and showing viewers what it’s really like to film the series.

Kicking things off in the nearly six-minute long segment Seda, who plays Dr. Sam Velez in the show, leads fans on a walk around the set for The Fort. “Now, doesn’t this look like we’re in 10,000 B.C.?” He asks in the video, above. The actor quickly clarifies that they’re actually in The You Youngs, Australia, just outside of Melbourne.

As realistic as the huts of The Fort may look, Seda shows us that it’s all part of the TV magic as the exteriors hide less glamorous interiors. Even with the expansive set on display, Seda notes that most interiors are shot on a sound stage which is also teased in the featurette.

Throwing the camera to Martin who plays Josh Harris in the show, Seda’s costar guides viewers through another portion of the set, teasing that Season it, “is truly bigger and better than ever.” Meanwhile, rounding out the tour are Mirchandaney and Santiago who play Scott Israni and Veronica Castillo.

Together, they walk us through the makeup and hair trailers, as well as visit the craft services truck. As this tour commences, fun facts pop up on the screen to provide further insight that La Brea fans won’t want to miss. For those less familiar with the series, La Brea follows an epic family adventure after a massive sinkhole opens in Los Angeles, pulling people and surrounding buildings into a mysterious and dangerous primeval land.
