Big Sky is a popular ABC drama series that follows detectives Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick) as they join forces to investigate a car wreck outside of Helena, Montana. The detectives soon discover that the accident is not as straightforward as they thought. How many seasons of Big Sky are there?
The Drama Continues
Big Sky is based on a series of books by C.J. Box that follows a private detective (Dewell) and her former partner (Hoyt) as they investigate crimes, take down drug cartels, solve kidnappings, combat organized crime, and more. Big Sky has been on ABC for two seasons already and has been renewed for a third.
What Is New For Season Three?
Big Sky was renewed for season 3 earlier this spring. However, there is one big change in this season’s lineup. Jensen Ackles has joined the show for season three. Ackles starred in the season 2 finale. The Supernatural star plays a confident and charming good ol’ boy from Texas, who steps in temporarily as Sheriff, named Beau Arlen. When Arlen steps in as Sheriff, he becomes Jenny Hoyt’s new boss. Currently, Ackles is thought to have signed for a year.
Jamie-Lynn Sigler Is Now A Series Regular
Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who was on reoccurring status during Season Two, has now been bumped up to a season regular. Sigler plays Tonya, a waitress at the diner who’s boyfriend mysteriously disappears. Tonya has now found herself stepping into power as a trusted associate of a local crime family. This occurred shortly after Tonya hired Hoyt and Dewell to find her boyfriend. Of course, they discovered things weren’t as straightforward as they thought. Hoyt and Dewell ended up entangled with someone from Jenny’s past, a band of unsuspecting teens, and a vicious outsider determined to find answers.
