ABC’s big sky expands the cast of the third season.
Rosanna Arquette will return in the series created by David E. Kelley, which has also been subtitled: The Show Will Be Known As Big Sky: Deadly Tracks for the coming season, since it is primarily about a hike in the back country.
Arquette (Ratched, Pulp Fiction) will play Virginia “Gigi” Cessna, Jenny’s (Katheryn Winnick) charismatic and fast-talking mother. Gigi is also a world-class con artist who has used Jenny from childhood in some of her schemes, much to the resentment of the now-adult Jenny. When Gigi returns to Helena, Montana for her latest con, Jenny catches her, and mother and daughter have to work through their relationship.
big sky will also have new regulars in Jensen Ackles and Reba McEntire, who will also narrate the season. Jenny, Cassie (Kylie Bunbury) and newly appointed Sheriff Beau Arlen (Ackles) investigate the fallout after a trip to the backcountry led by charismatic outfitter Sunny Barnes (McEntire) goes awry.
Arquette recently filmed a role (as herself) in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm Peacock by director Jason Woliner and will star in Netflix’s Florida Man, executive produced by Jason Bateman. Her recent work also includes Showtime’s The L Word: Generation Q (reprising a role from the original series) and the 2018 feature film The Etruscan Smile, starring Brian Cox. She is represented by Greene Talent, Ellen Meyer Management and Gang Tire.
