"Terra Nova" is an epic family adventure that is 85 million years in the making. The show follows a family through a journey back in time to prehistoric times. The year is 2149 and husband and wife, Jim Shannon (Jason O'Mara) and Elizabeth Shannon (Shelley Conn) are joined by their 17-year-old son Josh (Landon Liboiron) and 15-year-old Maddy (Naomi Scott). Together they have to get to Terra Nova. Once there, Josh is instantly attached to Skye (Allison Miller), a "bad girl" of sorts. They meet Commander Nathaniel Taylor (Stephen Lang) there and he informs them that they have a fresh start on Terra Nova. However, a group of renegades led by Mira (Christine Adams) is a serious threat.
