There will be more mysteries and crimes to solve in the 2021-22 network television season. ABC has renewed the Big Sky TV series for a second season. It’s unclear how many episodes have been ordered but the first season has 16 installments and there are three remaining.
A thriller drama that’s based on a series of books by C.J. Box, the Big Sky TV series stars Katheryn Winnick, Kylie Bunbury, Brian Geraghty, Dedee Pfeiffer, Natalie Alyn Lind, Jade Pettyjohn, Jesse James Keitel, Valerie Mahaffey, John Carroll Lynch, and Ryan Phillippe. The story begins with Danielle Sullivan (Lind) and her sister Grace (Pettyjohn) on a road trip to visit Danielle’s boyfriend. The two are kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote part of a Montana highway. This sets off a chain of events that leads private detectives Cody Hoyt (Phillippe) and Cassie Dewell (Bunbury) to join forces with Jenny Hoyt (Winnick), Cody’s estranged wife and an ex-cop, to search for the sisters. When the trio discovers that these are not the only girls who have disappeared in the area, it becomes clear that they’ve stumbled onto something that’s much bigger than they could have imagined.
Airing on Tuesday nights, the first season of Big Sky averages a 0.57 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.69 million viewers in the live+same day ratings. It’s the network’s sixth-highest rated scripted shows and does very well in delayed viewing.
