Big Sky, a television series, is returning for a third season on ABC, with a brand-new mystery for Kylie Bunbury and Katheryn Winnick to unravel. Along with Jensen Ackles, the pair will be joined by one new series regular, earning the chance to stick around even before appearing on-screen. Season 2 will conclude its current investigation on May 19.

Ackles isn''t entirely new to Big Sky. He was already scheduled to help Cassie (Bunbury) and Jenny (Winnick) during the finale, although the synopsis for the series already stated that this wasn''t a one-and-done affair.

However, as they seek for answers, it''s clear this was no ordinary wreck and the mystery goes through a band of unsuspecting teens, a flirtatious face from Jenny''s past, and an

ABC has gotten a lot of criticism this season, although it prefers to run it back with a lot of its original programming. A Million Little Things is also joined by Big Sky in returning for another round of comedy, including The Wonder Years, The Conners, and Home Economics. This time around, only Queens, Promised Land, and Black-ish get the axe, though the latter barely counts given that the sentiments were reciprocal about its conclusion.

On May 19, Big Sky concludes its second season on ABC.
