Sebastian Roche Bi Sky

There’s a new sheriff in town on Big Sky: Sebastian Roché (The Originals, Supernatural) will recur during the back half of the ABC drama’s first season, our sister site Deadline reports.

The ubiquitous Roché — who recently appeared on NBC’s Debris — will play Lochsa County’s Sheriff Wagy. “Despite Wagy’s apparent hospitality, Cassie and Jenny question his motives and efforts to obstruct their investigation at every turn,” per Deadline.

Additionally, Michelle Veintimilla (The Baker and the Beauty) will recur as Rosie Amaya, the daughter of the Kleinsasser family’s ranch manager Gil Amaya. She will be a pivotal part of Cassie and Jenny’s investigation into Lochsa County and its secrets.

Big Sky returns Tuesday, April 13 at 9/8c with two episodes.
