Big Sky star Jesse James Keitel just posted some beautiful photos from their trip to the Rio Grande Gorge. Keitel plays Jerrie Kennedy on the ABC drama. Jerrie is a transgender sex worker who is kidnapped by Ronald Pergman in the early episodes. Later on in the series, she works for Cassie and Jenny at their private investigation firm.

“hi gorg @thekooples,” the Big Sky star wrote in the caption.

Keitel is a fan favorite on the show, and many are excited to see them back in action for season 2. Keitel’s role as Jerrie Kennedy also made history. They are the first nonbinary series regular on primetime television. The actor also recently landed a role on the Queer is Folk re-boot.

‘Big Sky’ Is Returning with a Ton of New Cast Members

Big Sky season 2 will make a major comeback this fall on ABC. While the new season is bringing in plenty of members of the season one cast, some major new actors are joining the cast. Deadline recently announced the major season 2 additions.

Meadow Soprano actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler will join the cast of Big Sky as a regular next year. Sigler is set to play a waitress who has major plans with her boyfriend that are brought to a horrifying halt when he disappears. Tonya goes to Cassie, Jenny, and the rest of the crew at Dewell & Hoyt for help, but is withholding crucial information.

Madelyn Kientz will also play a crucial role as Cassie’s younger sister. Kientz is known for her work on The Walking Dead: World Beyond. Cassie’s younger sister Max is a teenager who relies a lot on her close-knit group of friends to get by.

Additionally, Janina Gavankar is joining the Big Sky cast. Gavankar will play Ren, a woman new to Helena. Not much is known about her role yet, but she’s going to be pivotal to the plot of season two, which according to the publication involves “unsuspecting teens, a flirtatious face from Jenny’s past, and a vicious outsider hellbent on finding answers.”

Season 2 is shaping up to be quite the nail-biter, with the Twitter account for the show tweeting out plenty of cryptic messages in the meantime to keep fans on their twos.

While Ronald will still be involved, season 2 is definitely going in a new direction. That’s a good thing. Big Sky started off fairly strong, but seriously struggled with ratings in the second half of its season. Now, it’s getting a new chance with a time slot right after the hit series Grey’s Anatomy. This will hopefully give the drama a needed boost in the ratings.

If you want to catch season 2 of Big Sky, the wait is almost over. Tune in to ABC on Thursday, September 30th at 10/9 central.
