ABC announced today that Big Sky has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes with three episodes remaining in the thriller's freshman run.

The series premiered in November with an initial 10-episode order that was quickly bumped up to 16 after a strong start in the ratings. Its first week on the air garnered nearly 11 million viewers across the network's linear and digital platforms, making 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 initially join forces to search for two sisters who have been kidnapped on a remote highway in Montana. Two duo have since moved on to focus on another case in the back-half of Season 1.

Look for Season 2 of Big Sky during the 2021-2022 season.
