“Big Sky” fans are in for a big treat in season two. The new season brings back many previous cast members. But there are also seven new characters that are sure to raise suspicion during the next investigation.

Series regulars Janina Gavankar, Brian Geraghty and Dedee Pfeiffer will all return for “Big Sky” season two. Additionally, the show promoted Omar Metwally and Anja Savcic from recurring cast members to series regulars for the upcoming season. Jesse James Keitel will also appear in season two. But the most exciting part about season two is the new actors on board.

 Actor Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who rose to fame as Meadow Soprano on “The Sopranos” will play a key role in the upcoming season of “Big Sky.” Sigler will play Tonya, a waitress who works at a local diner. Tonya and her boyfriend have big plans for their future. However, those plans come to a screeching halt when Tonya’s boyfriend mysteriously disappears. Like a good, concerned girlfriend, Tonya hires a company called Dewell & Hoyt to help find her boyfriend. However, Tonya is withholding some information that could lead to the discovery of her boyfriend. We are all for some more “Big Sky” secrets! Fans and fellow characters alike would be wise not to underestimate Tonya.

Along with Sigler, there are six additional new “Big Sky” cast members. Madelyn Kientz (“The Walking Dead: World Beyond”), Troy Johnson (“On My Block”), Lola Reid (“Barkskins”), Jeremy Taylor (“It” films), TV Carpio (“Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark”) and Arturo Del Puerto (“Camping”) are all joining the cast.

Kientz is slated to play Max, Cassie’s teenage sister. Although Max has a cool and sarcastic exterior, she relies heavily on her close group of friends to navigate the waters of adolescence. Troy Johnson will play Harper, one of Max’s close friends. And Lola Reid will play the third musketeer of the friend group, Madison. Madison is Bridger’s baby sister. With two lawyer parents, Madison is probably the most rational of all three friends. That pragmatism may be necessary after the group witnesses a horrifying crime.

What Is Season Two All About?

As all you dedicated fans already know, “Big Sky” is based on the series of books by C.J. Box. The show follows private detectives Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick). During season two, the two reunite after hearing about a car wreck outside of Helena, Montana. However, once they start investigating, they discover that the case may not be as straightforward as it seemed. As the mystery unfolds, Dewell and Hoyt will collide with the group of teenage friends, a waitress from a local diner, and many other good and suspicious characters.

We can’t wait to watch it all unravel! Season two will premiere on September 30th.
