Big Sky Season 4: is it renewed or canceled?

Is Big Sky renewed for Season 4?

As of January 2023, the network has yet to formally announce the fourth season of Big Sky. We know that the third season completed its entire run on the ABC network a few hours ago, making it unreasonable to ask for any news or updates about a potential fourth-season renewal as it is evidently too soon for any major network to make such significant statements in such a short period of time. In the meantime, the fans should wait for ABC to formally verify and acknowledge this information. 

We understand your anticipation of knowing what’s next in the tale, you should know that the network may assess its performance and reception before renewing the series for future seasons, and it takes some time. Look at some of the tweets from fans below, which prove that they have been anticipating the fourth season for some time and have already begun binge-watching all the episodes, increasing the likelihood that the show will be renewed and explore more character arcs and plotlines. 

Big Sky Season 4 Speculated Release Date and Time Slot

As mentioned above, the series has not been formally verified, and the prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged, as the status is neither here nor there. On the bright side, the good news is that Big Sky has not been canceled, and the show is still in the running for renewal at ABC. It’s unclear when ABC will make a decision on the show’s fate, but we expect it to be no later than May 2023, ahead of the network’s annual Upfronts presentation.  

So, if the show is renewed in the coming months, we can predict that the potential release date might happen sometime around late 2023 or even early 2024, as the prior three chapters also had a similar year gap with the same time slot of every Wednesday at 10/9c time slot. In order to receive updates on when Big Sky Season 4 premieres on ABC, interested viewers can also enable notifications. Until then, fans should keep a close eye on the social media handles of the show to learn about any new updates and developments and stream the prior seasons. 

Big Sky Season 4: What to expect?

We have limited the information about the new episodes to avoid major spoilers, but there are still a lot of unanswered questions. We advise you to stop reading if you haven’t yet streamed the season. The series will definitely expand the basic premise of  “Big Sky,” further which 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.

The season just premiered its last episode, making it way too early to speculate about the plotlines when the show’s creators haven’t even made any comments about the next season, so getting any confirmed information about the plot is way too early. But if we have to speculate the new season if renewed is definitely going to pick up from the final, “That Old Feeling,” in which the viewers got to see that with Denise and Emily’s lives on the line, Jenny and Beau are determined to bring the Bleeding Heart Killer to justice, no matter what it takes. Meanwhile, Cassie uses her connections to pin down their possible location; and Sunny makes a fiery decision that will change her family forever, but will it all be enough to save the ones they love?

The main cast members from the last season are expected to reprise their roles including Katheryn Winnick as Jenny Hoyt, Kylie Bunbury as Cassie Dewell, Dedee Pfeiffer as Denise Brisbane, Jamie-Lynn Sigler as Tonya Walsh, J. Anthony Pena as Deputy Mo Poppernak, and Jensen Ackles as Sheriff Beau Arlen. The recurring cast includes Rex Linn as Buck Barnes, Ryan O’Nan as Donno, Luke Mitchell as Cormac Barnes, Henry Ian Cusick as Avery McCallister, Seth Gabel as Walter, Zach Tinker as Mark Woodman, Cree Cicchino as Emily Arlen, Madalyn Horcher as Paige, Anirudh Pisharody as Luke, Sofia Embid as Mary, Amy Puente as Pat, Dylan Kenin as Doug, Melissa Chambers as Madge Crowder, Angelique Cabral as Carla De Lugo, West Liang as Tony, and Alex Fernandez as Winston Turner.
