There's a mysterious new face in town.

Reba McEntire has joined the cast of Big Sky as a series regular for the forthcoming season 3. The actress and country music star will star as Sunny Brick, the matriarch of the Brick family, a "successful backcountry outfitter with a secret history of missing customers," per a character description.

The crime drama from David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies, The Undoing) follows private detective Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and her former partner Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick) as they investigate local crimes, taking on drug syndicates, notorious kidnappers, crime dynasties, and more along the way. The ABC series is based on C.J. Box.'s Highway book series.

Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who portrays Tonya, a local diner waitress who becomes a trusted confidant for Cassie and Jenny, has also been promoted to a series regular.
