‘Big Sky’: New Season 2 Character is Going to Get Involved in ‘Main Mystery’ That Will Tie ‘All’ of Cast Together

by Joe Rutland

What in the world is this about “Big Sky” on ABC? Apparently, one of the show’s new characters gets involved in its big mystery.

Outsiders, who could it be? According to an article from TV Line, showrunner Elwood Reid drops the inside scoop.

He said Madelyn Kientz, who has been on “Walker,” is now on “Big Sky” as Max. She babysits for Cassie, played by Kylie Bunbury, and “gets sucked into this main mystery that’s going to pull in all of our characters,” Reid said.

OK, now we want to know about what’s happening with those fugitive killers Ronald, played by Brian Geraghty, and Scarlet, played by Anja Savcic.

“They’re in the wind, and then something happens to them,” Reid said. “They are living a little bit happily ever after in a cabin, and then something intercedes into that paradise.” If you want some insight into the “Big Sky” characters’ “something,” then keep your eyes peeled for the end of the season opener.

Outsiders, make sure to keep the calendars free on Thursday, Sept. 30. That’s when Season 2 of the David E. Kelley-created drama kicks off at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central. The opening episode’s title? “Wakey, Wakey.” Do with that information what you will.

Kathryn Winnick returns to play Jenny while John Carroll Lynch will appear as Montana State Patrol Officer Rick Legarski. Yew, we know “Big Sky” fans that he was killed in Season 1. How will he show up this season? Stay tuned.

‘Big Sky’ Moves Season 2 Filming From Canada To New Mexico

Meanwhile, “Big Sky” has literally moved from one part of North America to another.

Its first-season episodes were filmed in Canada. But all that is changing for the ABC drama series.

They are filming in Rio Rancho, N.M., from August 2021 through April 2022. The Hollywood Reporter informed readers of this change.

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, in a statement, said, “The decision of ‘Big Sky’ to film season 2 in New Mexico shows we have created a resilient and thriving film industry.

“This production will support jobs for thousands of New Mexicans well into 2022,” she said. “And boost spending to the many local businesses that provide goods and services to this industry.”

The New Mexico Film Office said “Big Sky” was moving its filming from Vancouver, British Columbia, to New Mexico. This also will allow 500 jobs to be created along with citizens of the Land of Enchantment who can be bused in as extras.

Reid said, “For years I’ve had friends rave to me about their experience filming in New Mexico.” He added that he was excited to bring “Big Sky” to the state in the Great American Southwest.
