The "Queen of Country" herself is yet another intriguing addition to Deadly Trails. The cast will include actress and singer Reba McEntire. McEntire will play Sunny Barnes, whose property is the scene of numerous disappearances and perhaps a few deaths. Sunny owns a hiking route in the show.

Sunny is characterized by McEntire as "very protective and loving. She's trying to make a living with her family on this glamping thing and she's working really hard to hold it all together."

What to Expect from Big Sky Season 3: Deadly Trails

The trailer for Big Sky Season 3 begins with Patsy Cline's Walkin' After Midnight playing as we see Sunny Day Excursions, the "luxury backcountry experience" operated by McEntire's character, Sunny.

"Some trails are not meant to be followed," advises the text at the end of the trailer.

The trailer also shows Ackles and his genial charm as the new sheriff in town, as well as him working with Cassie and Jenny. Deadly Trails sounds like it will have something for everyone, whether you prefer Big Sky for the mysteries, the people, or the breathtaking scenery.
