In the year 2149, Earth is a dying planet. It is overdeveloped and overcrowded, and most of the plants and animals are extinct. But there is hope. And it lies 85 million years in the past. A bold experiment sends colonists back in time in hopes of finding a way to save the human race from itself. One man and his family join the quest, but they soon find out that everything in the past is not what it seems.
Jason O’Mara plays Jim Shannon, a devoted father with a checkered past, who risks everything to bring his family to Terra Nova. Now he must guide them in their new life in a strange, new world with limitless beauty, mystery and terror – all the while trying to mend the sins of the past – and future. The series also stars Stephen Lang, Shelley Conn, and Landon Liboiron.
