ABC announced today that Big Sky has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes ahead of next week's sophomore finale, which airs on May 19.

The hour-long series premiered in 2020 with an initial 10-episode order that was quickly bumped up to 16 after a solid start in the ratings. It has since continued to be a reliable performer across the network's linear and digital platforms.

From David E. Kelley, Big Sky follows a private detective and an ex-cop who initially join forces to search for two sisters who were kidnapped on a remote highway in Montana. Two duo have since moved on to focus on other cases that come up in their small town. Season 3 will see Jensen Ackles join the cast, playing a new temporary Sheriff.

Look for Season 3 of Big Sky this fall as part of the 2022-2023 season.
