ABC Cancels ‘Big Sky,’ ‘Alaska Daily,’ and ‘The Company You Keep’

Three TV dramas have reached the end of the line at ABC: The broadcast network has canceled Big Sky after three seasons and Alaska Daily and The Company You Keep after one apiece.

Big Sky, created by prolific TV producer David E. Kelly and adapted from novels by C.J. Box, followed private detective Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and undersheriff Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick) as they investigated crimes in small-town Montana. In Season 3, subtitled Deadly Trails, the duo teamed up with sheriff Beau Arlen (Jensen Ackles) to investigate an ill-fated backcountry trip led by outfitter Sunny Barnes (Reba McEntire).

Season 3 — which also starred Dedee Pfeiffer as Denise Brisbane, Jamie-Lynn Sigler as Tonya Wallis, and J. Anthony Pena as Deputy Mo Poppernak — had an average 0.25 rating in the 18–49 demographic and averaged 2.28 million live-plus-same-day viewers, down 18 percent and 12 percent from Season 2, respectively, according to TV Series Finale.

Alaska Daily, created by Academy Award winner Tom McCarthy, starred Hilary Swank as Eileen Fitzgerald, an investigative journalist who leaves New York City for Anchorage to look into reports of missing and murdered Indigenous women with the help of reporter Roz Friendly (Grace Dove) and editor Stanley Kornik (Jeff Perry).

The Company You Keep marked Milo Ventimiglia’s first post-This Is Us TV series. The actor played Charlie, a con man who collides with undercover CIA officer Emma, played by Catherine Haena Kim. In the series — created by Julia Cohen and based on the Korean TV show My Fellow Citizens — also starred William Fichtner as Leo, Tim Chiou as David, Freda Foh Shen as Grace, James Saito as Joseph, Sarah Wayne Callies as Birdie, Felisha Terrell as Daphne, and Polly Draper as Fran.
