Plot Synopsis

Based on the series of books by C.J. Box and executive produced by showrunner David E. Kelley, BIG SKY is a one-hour scripted series that follows private detectives Cassie Dewell and Cody Hoyt, who join forces with his estranged wife and ex-cop, Jenny Hoyt, to solve a missing persons case. While on a road trip to visit her boyfriend in Montana, Danielle Sullivan and her sister Grace are kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote part of the highway, setting off a chain of events that leads Cody and Cassie to team up with Jenny to search for the sisters. But when they discover that these are not the only girls who have disappeared in the area, they must race against the clock to stop the killer before another woman is taken. It's clear they've stumbled onto something much bigger than them all. After a six-week break, BIG SKY returned with new episodes on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 at 10pm ET/PT on ABC. In the winter premiere, "The Wolves Are Always Out for Blood," after Jenny and Cassie learn the truth about Cody's fate, they decide to officially team up to track down Ronald. Elsewhere, Merrilee grapples with the fact that she didn't truly know her husband, while Helen learns more about her son's recent activities. Guest starring is Patrick Gallagher as Sherriff Tubb. After a two-month break, BIG SKY returned with two new episodes on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 from 9-11pm ET/PT, as ABC debuted back-to-back installments.

On Thursday, September 30, 2021 at 10pm ET/PT, ABC premiered the second season of BIG SKY. The new season follows private detectives Cassie Dewell and Jenny Hoyt as they reunite to investigate a car wreck outside of Helena, Montana, and they soon discover that the case may not be as straightforward as it seems. As they unravel the mystery of the accident, their worlds will collide with a band of unsuspecting teens, a flirtatious face from Jenny's past, and a vicious outsider hellbent on finding answers. In the season opener, "Wakey, Wakey," after Ronald's escape, Cassie distracts herself with work at Dewell & Hoyt while Jenny, recovering from her near-death experience, decides to take Sheriff Tubb up on his offer for her to rejoin the force. Yet, even as these two seem to move in different directions, it won't be long before a mysterious accident leads them to cross paths. Elsewhere, Ronald is wrapped up in something he can't get out of but who did the wrapping?
Tonight (Thursday, November 18, 2021) at 10pm ET/PT, ABC premieres "Heart-shaped Charm," a new episode of BIG SKY. Cassie grows suspicious of Max after noticing her keychain matches one found nearby the crime scene and decides to confront her. Jenny and Travis get together to talk in secret, or so they think, as Smiley's curiosity gets the best of him, and he follows Travis to the meetup. Later, to his dismay, Travis comes face to face with Ren and Donno who are determined to get answers out of him; and Lindor pays Wolf a visit. Guest stars: Ryan O'Nan as Donno, Jamie-Lynn Sigler as Tonya, Madelyn Kientz as Max, Troy Johnson as Harper, Lola Reid as Madison, Jeremy Taylor as Bridger, Romy Rosemont as Agatha, David Meunier as Dietrich and Patrick Gallagher as Sheriff Tubb.
