This time, the Hargreeves family finds themselves in 1960s Dallas, where they must face yet another apocalypse. After the events of the Season 1 finale, the family has been split up through time, all ending up with very different lives, including: Klaus is now the leader of a cult (naturally), Diego seems to be locked up in a mental hospital, and Allison appears to be involved in the Civil Rights movement. But somehow, the apocalypse they were looking to avoid is still going to happen, so they must reunite and figure out how their new realities are all connected to save the world.
