One of the biggest new dramas of the fall 2020 season is certainly Big Sky. Will ABC cancel or renew the series for Season 2?
Big Sky was one of the only new dramas out in fall 2020, and it has been a great success for ABC. Now all eyes are on whether it will be canceled or renewed.
The series aired its winter finale last night (Dec. 15). Don’t worry, we won’t spoil anything for you. All we will say is that it’s left us wanting more in the new year.
It also makes us want to see the series renewed for a second season. Is that on the cards?
ABC ordered six more episodes
While the show has not been renewed yet, there are some signs that Big Sky Season 2 will happen.
The biggest sign is ABC ordering more episodes. This happens a lot with new shows. The networks order 10–13 episodes and will then order extra episodes if there is some success. The order takes the episode count to 16, which is classed as a full season now.
Apart from one week, the ratings have been great. That week where the ratings dropped, Tuesday Night Football aired as a one-off and all TV shows saw a dip in the ratings.
The show overall sits fifth out of 10 TV shows on ABC right now.
Big Sky Season 2 is likely
With all this, it looks like Big Sky is likely to be renewed. It’s been an excellent start to the series, performing better than sophomore shows.
Of course, we’ll have to wait and see how the January shows perform. There are still many shows still to premiere due to delayed filming during the pandemic. It will be interesting to see how Big Sky does without The Voice as a lead-in.
