ABC has made its first back order of the season, picking up an additional six episodes of the new drama Big Sky, bringing its total to 16. The good news comes after a solid start to the series, which has generated a healthy amount of buzz since its mid-November premiere.

Through its first seven days, the show garnered nearly 11 million viewers across the network's linear and digital platforms, with a 2.5 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. That makes it ABC's best-performing series launch since 2018's The Rookie.

From David E. Kelley, Big Sky follows a private detective and an ex-cop who join forces to search for two sisters who have been kidnapped on a remote highway in Montana. But when they learn that the girls are not the first to have disappeared in the area, it becomes a race against the clock to stop the killer before more victims are taken.
