Reba McEntire is joining an ABC drama as a series regular when it returns for its next season. The legendary country artist will appear on Season 3 of Big Sky, a crime drama that focuses on “a private detective (who) teams up with an ex-cop to solve a kidnapping case in Montana,” its synopsis reads.
“We are thrilled to have [Reba McEntire] join [Big Sky] as Sunny Brick when we return next season!” Big Sky’s Twitter account reads. McEntire shared in a tweet of her own that she’s “so excited” to join the show next season. Big Sky stars Katheryn Winnick, Kylie Bunbury and Dedee Pfeiffer, among others.
The announcement that McEntire will join the show comes shortly after the announcement of the season renewal. Variety noted in a report on Monday (May 16) that Jensen Ackles and Jamie-Lynn Sigler will also join Big Sky as series regulars in Season 3. Ackles will play Beau Arien and Sigler takes on the role of Tonya Walsh in the series. Along with her iconic country music, fans know McEntire for her roles in movies and TV series like Reba, Young Sheldon and more. McEntire also recently announced her plans to publish a new lifestyle book in 2023. She gushed in a statement last month: “I know my fans are going to love it!”
