When is the Big Sky episode 10 air date? How long is the delay? Let’s explain when audiences can continue the journey on ABC.
A new decade of television got off to a promising start last year and audiences were treated to a wealth of new titles, as well as the return of familiar favourites.
One which immediately gripped ABC audiences was Big Sky, based on C.J. Box’s 2013 novel, The Highway.
Created by David E. Kelley, the series premiered in November 2020 and attracted audiences with performances from Katheryn Winnick, Kylie Bunbury, Natalie Alyn Lind and others.
It has continued to compel in 2021, but viewers were surprised to find that episode 10 wasn’t scheduled in the series’ regular slot this February.
So, when is the Big Sky episode 10 air date?
Big Sky episode 10 air date
- Big Sky is currently on a break and episode 10 is set to air on Tuesday, April 13th 2021 at 9 pm on ABC.
The break allows the team time to wrap production. Additionally, it means that Big Sky is ready for May sweeps, an important part of the network’s year.
It’s also worth addressing that this is the second time that the series has gone on a break. Audiences may remember that there was a somewhat lengthy delay between episodes 5 and 6, with fans having to wait over one month to tune into ‘The Wolves Are Always Out for Blood’.
Be sure to make a note of the date so you don’t miss out on the series continuation. As of yet, the forthcoming episode has no official title.
Big Sky: How many episodes?
Big Sky will be made up of 16 episodes in total, so there are 7 instalments of the series left to look forward to.
On the other hand, Variety acknowledges that this wasn’t always the case. Only 10 episodes were planned initially, but ABC ordered another six episodes after the first three episodes had finished airing.
This helps further explain the delay, as the majority of the remaining episodes were decided after the series premiere.
The decision was likely influenced by ratings; after a week of delayed viewing, the Big Sky premiere earned 10.8 million total viewers and a 2.5 rating among adults 18-49. This resulted in it becoming ABC’s most-watched and highest-rated debut since The Rookie.
Is Big Sky season 2 confirmed?
As of yet, ABC is yet to renew Big Sky for a second season.
It’s perhaps far too early to expect renewal news, considering the first season has been extended and there are still seven episodes left to air.
Renewal news will likely emerge around the time of the season finale, or shortly after.
Big Sky episode 10 will air on ABC on Tuesday, April 13th 2021.
