The Big Sky Twitter account just posted another sinister photo to tease the upcoming release of season 2. Big Sky which aired its first season last year, follows two private detectives, Cassie and Jenny, as they work to solve serious crimes in rural Montana. It’s based on The Highway series by C.J. Box.
This photo, which the Big Sky account simply captioned, “Someone is always watching,” is a still from season 1 of the show. The still shows Jenny’s son Justin staring out the window in the third episode of the series.
Justin Hoyt is still relatively unexplored as a character in Big Sky. Often operating in the background, Justin was only in five of the episodes for mostly brief scenes. Considering how important he is to Jenny, some fans are hoping to see more of the boy in season 2.
The new season of Big Sky will air on Thursday, September 30 at 10 p.m. ET, and hopefully, confirm the safety of the fan-favorite main characters who were left in danger last season. But as the Twitter account recently implied in a separate tweet and executive producer Elwood Reid has emphasized…. Nobody is safe.
This is troubling considering both Cassie and Jenny were left in precarious spots in the finale.
“Both women are in jeopardy,” Reid informed Entertainment Weekly. “Nobody’s off limits; everybody’s fair game. We’re going to go that way right to the end of the show — ride or die with that ethos.”
Two Major Characters Won’t Return For ‘Big Sky’ Season 2
If the women are in danger next season, it won’t be from the Kliensassers. While the most notable villain from season 1 is probably Ronald Pergman, the Kleinsasser family gave Pergman a run for his money as far as evil antics.
According to TV Line, the final two surviving members of the Kleinsasser family, Cheyenne and Margaret, won’t be making an appearance next season. This isn’t to say they won’t return in a potential third season, but for now, their storylines are being shelved.
Meanwhile, one actor is getting a promotion to the main cast. Omar Metwally, who plays US Marshall Mark Lindor, is now a series regular. This likely means his character will be alright going into season 2, but Big Sky has also taught its fans to expect the unexpected. Metwally joined the cast midway through the season. Many immediately found Lindor untrustworthy but started to warm up to him as the season continued.
Big Sky ended the broadcast year as ABC’s 4th most popular drama, and it struggled in the ratings toward the end of the season. Thankfully, the network is really giving the show a chance, moving it to a timeslot after its incredibly popular Grey’s Anatomy to hopefully help it gain more viewers.
That means it’ll air on Thursdays at 9/8 Central.
