ABC Renews ‘Big Sky’, ‘The Wonder Years’, A Million Little Things & More

After yesterday’s bloodbath, ABC has opted to come out with some more positive news, giving renewals to five shows – Big Sky, The Wonder Years, A Million Little Things, The Conners, and ‘Home Economics’.

Big Sky follows private detectives Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick) as they reunite to investigate a car wreck outside of Helena, Montana, and they soon discover that the case may not be as straightforward as it seems. As they unravel the mystery of the accident, their worlds will collide with a band of unsuspecting teens, a flirtatious face from Jenny’s past, and a vicious outsider hellbent on finding answers.

The renewal not only hands them a 3rd Season, but also a new regular cast member, as it’s announced ‘Supernatural’ star Jensen Ackles will be taking a series regular role on the drama. We’re still waiting on the second half of Season 2 to drop onto Disney+ here (potentially in the Summer) so I won’t go into any more detail than that as I don’t want to spoil anything for people…

The Wonder Years, which lands a 2nd Season, is a coming-of-age story set in the late 1960s that takes a nostalgic look at a black middle-class family in Montgomery, Alabama, through the point of view of imaginative 12-year-old Dean. With the wisdom of his adult years, Dean’s hopeful and humorous recollections show how his family found their “wonder years” in a turbulent time.

The series stars Don Cheadle, narrating the series as Adult Dean Williams, Elisha “EJ” Williams as Dean Williams, Dulé Hill as Bill Williams, Saycon Sengbloh as Lillian Williams, Laura Kariuki as Kim Williams, Julian Lerner as Brad Hitman, Amari O’Neil as Cory Long and Milan Ray as Keisa Clemmons.

Also renewed today was A Million Little Things a drama that group of friends from Boston, which gets a 5th Season; ‘Rosanne’ spin-off The Conners, which also lands a 5th Season; And Topher Grace’s comedy ‘Home Economics’ which gets a 3rd Season. These three shows have yet to turn up in the UK.

They join the previously renewed ABC lineup of The Rookie (Season 5), Grey’s Anatomy (Season 19), Station 19 (Season 6), ‘Abbott Elementary’ (Season 2), The Goldbergs (Season 10), and The Good Doctor (Season 6).

Big Sky‘ & ‘The Wonder Years’ both air on Disney+ in the UK.
