ABC’s top hit of the 2020-2021 TV season, Big Sky, is moving production to New Mexico. The popular Netflix show Big Sky has been filming in Montana since the beginning of season 2. The producers have decided to move production to Mexico for two reasons: first, it will save them money on their budget. Second, they are trying to stay true to the Mexican vibe that is present in this season’s storyline.

Big Sky Season 2 Production Details and Other Updates:

Production for the second season of David E. Kelley-created drama Big SKY will begin in August 2021 and is set to continue through April 2022, according to a report from the New Mexico Film Office.

The filming of the first season, which aired during the 2020-2021 television season, was done in Vancouver, British Columbia. The second season is scheduled for a 2021-2022 release and will be overseen by showrunner Elwood Reid who directed filming on the series’ latter half.

“New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham was pleased with the decision of Big Sky to film season 2 in New Mexico. She stated that ‘the production would support jobs for thousands of New Mexicans well into 2022 and boost spending to the many local businesses,’” said Grisham, who was excited about the opportunity for increased economic development down the road.

The production of the new big sky season 2 will provide an economic boost to New Mexico, employing over 500 crew members and thousands of locals as background actors.

“Executive Producer Reid said: ‘For years I’ve had friends rave to me about their experience filming in New Mexico. I’m excited to bring the second season of Big Sky to the Land of Enchantment. I am always looking for ways we can improve our product, and enjoying our time shooting in New Mexico has been an incredible endeavor.’” When Big Sky premiered on ABC, it attracted some controversy when dozens of Indigenous groups protested the show’s lack of Native and Indigenous representation.

Big Sky producers responded to criticism later in December of the show’s second season, stating, “After meaningful conversations with representatives of the Indigenous community, our eyes have been opened to the outsized number of Native American and Indigenous women who go missing and are murdered each year, a sad and shocking fact.” They added: “We are grateful for this education and are working with Indigenous groups to create content that brings attention to this important issue.”

Adapted from a series of novels by C.J. Box and starring Katheryn Winnick, Kylie Bunbury, Brian Geraghty, Dedee Pfeiffer, Omar Metally, and Anja Savcic in season two: Big Sky is billed as an “intensely personal” thriller with complicated psychological twists.
