The new ABC series, “Big Sky,” continues to suck viewers in every Tuesday.

The show is about an ex-cop and detective who are looking into the disappearance of two young girls. Along the way, they discover there’s a lot more going on, including kidnapping, murder, and a sex trafficking ring.

The show features stars Katheryn Winnick, Kylie Bunbury, Brian Geraghty, Jesse James Keitel, and John Carroll Lynch.

According to MSN, “Big Sky” is continuing to lead the adult 18-49 rankings. The Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors NBA game as well as the Fox show, “The Resident,” are also at the top of the charts in terms of viewers.

Although the show is leading this week in demographics, it is actually down from the week prior. The show came away with a 0.58 rating this week compared to a 0.61 last week. This week 3.66 million tuned in to watch the show live, compared to 3.84 million the week before.

This does not include the number of people tuning in the next day or other future days to watch on Hulu, a huge and popular streaming service.

Future of ‘Big Sky’

After last night’s episode, fans are wondering how the show will continue the plotline. This is going to be a relatively spoiler-free zone at the moment, but a major character is right on the edge of being caught by authorities.

How will he escape his connection to the kidnappings, physically flee, or how will the show play out with him locked up behind bars? How long can producers keep this case open when both characters are now being discovered by the police?

According to TV Insider’s Matt Roush, known as the “TV therapist,” the show will likely start to expand its focus. For example, in this week’s episode, Jenny and Cassie talk about getting more information regarding the sex trafficking ring and working with Indigenous reservations nearby.

Montana has a high number of Indigenous women go missing every year. It is likely the show may start to address this more.

“To your topic: Week by week, the net has been tightening on the kidnapper/sex traffickers, so I’m fairly sure you’ll get your wish, and Big Sky will eventually move on to another case — and possibly future seasons of Cassie (Kylie Bunbury) and Jenny (Katheryn Winnick) working their P.I. mojo,” Roush said.

After teaming up as partners and Jenny being told she could become a cop again if she’s interested, this certainly isn’t the last case we’ll see them work on. In fact, the case is also much, much bigger than three missing girls.

However, the sky really is the limit for the rest of “Big Sky,” which will start moving away from the events in C.J. Box’s “The Highway” to focus on new plots for the characters.
