Hypertables in TimescaleDB are designed to be easy to manage and to behave predictably to users familiar with standard PostgreSQL tables. Along those lines, SQL commands to create, alter, or delete (hyper)tables in TimescaleDB are identical to those in PostgreSQL. Even though hypertables are comprised of many interlinked "chunk" tables, commands made to the hypertable automatically propagate changes down to all of the chunks belonging to that hypertable.
