What Is The Show “Big Sky” About?
Big Sky focuses on Cassie Dewell and Cody Hoyt, who work as private detectives. As a truck driver kidnapped two sisters on a remote highway in Montana, the detectives have some investigation to do. Joining an ex-cop named Jenny Hoy, who is also Cody’s estranged wife, the duo starts working. As they dig deeper into the investigation, they find that the kidnapping has been going on for a while. And it needs to be looked at! Looking into things comes out the questions about Kleinsasser Family and many more secrets.
Horst has lost all his allies, including his wife, as she is against him. That way, Scarlet and Robert can make a plan together to escape and hide their doings. Escaping police and changing their identities as they run across the border to cross it and reaching a new country. But it is not that simple as there are still confrontations to make.
The show ended with a “TO BE CONTINUED” card. Cassie stole a cop car so she can catch Ronald and Scarlet. So there is no way the creators of the show are so heartless that they will leave the viewers on this brutal cliffhanger.

With the shows being canceled by the production houses due to budget and viewership issues, Big Sky is ABC’s second show to get the renewing announcement after the hit medical drama The Good Doctor.
