Big Sky Season 3 Potential Release Date
The series renewal was officially announced yesterday by ABC. Moreover, the second season of Big Sky is still on the air. So, asking for Big Sky Season 3’s official release date seems a little early. If we have to guess, looking at the pattern of prior seasons, the upcoming season will most likely premiere in late 2022 or early 2023. We would like to highlight that at this point in time this is just speculation.
Furthermore, Big Sky Season 2 Episode 18, Catch a Few Fish, is set to debut on May 19, 2022, as the final episode of Big Sky Season 2. So, we suggest the viewers wait patiently for some time as these updates will be confirmed by the network in the near future as the second season draws closer to its finale episode and the production of the third season commences on time without any major delays.

Big Sky Season 3 Expected Plot
Big Sky is a David E. Kelley-created American crime drama thriller series based on C. J. Box’s Highway series of books. On November 17, 2020, the series launched on the ABC network.
As of May 15, 2022, 17 episodes have been released out of the 18 episode seasons. The official synopsis of the 17th episode states, “A concerned Jenny searches for Travis; Scarlett, desperate to protect her daughter, makes an unexpected phone call that could change the course of more than one life; Jag finds out the truth about his father.”
The last episode titled, Catch a Few Fish, will release on May 19, 2022. This episode will follow up on this premise and set up the conclusion in the last episode of the season.
The official synopsis of the 18th episode states, “Jenny works to find Travis before he reaches a dangerous point of no return; Ren and Jag find a new familial bond and decide how to handle their father now that he’s crossed a serious line; Cassie changes the course of her quest for justice forever.”
Take a look at the official promo of Big Sky Season 2 Episode 18, Catch a Few Fish.
Jensen Ackles, a guest star, opens the promo and shows that final decisions are made in a conflict between head and heart as Jenny strives to find Travis before he crosses a dangerous line; simultaneously, Ren and Jag form a new familial relationship and determine how to deal with their father now that he’s crossed a major boundary.
Cassie’s quest for justice is permanently altered once she receives an unexpected gift from Scarlett. With Tubb out of commission for the time being, a new sheriff arrives in town, and after getting to know Cassie and Jenny, it appears as if he may stay for a while.
Moreover, these plot summaries and promo give viewers a taste of the plot, but not the complete picture that the show’s writers have written as a screenplay. As a result, we have no way of knowing what big information or surprises will occur in the last episode, how the season will end, or what cliffhangers and storylines will emerge before the conclusion.
As a result, we advise fans to wait patiently and watch the episodes in order to make conclusions that will lead to the release of Big Sky Season 3 and help establish the tone of the next season for the viewers.
Big Sky Season 3 Episodes
Although the exact number of episodes for Big Sky Season 3 has yet to be released, we may anticipate at least 16-18 episodes with a 42-44 minute runtime, similar to the previous seasons. Furthermore, many series strive to keep their episode count steady throughout future seasons to keep the story consistent.
As a result, we advise fans to be patient while waiting for these updates, which will be issued once post-production is completed on schedule and the names of each episode are made official. In the meantime, binge-watch previous seasons to refresh your memory.
Which cast members are returning for Big Sky Season 3?
We’d like to point out that there may be some new cast additions and removals for the third season, which will be revealed after production begins and is formally confirmed. According to Deadline, Jensen Ackles, who will guest star in the season two finale, will join the cast as a series regular in season three.
