Warning: spoilers ahead for the season premiere of Big Sky.

Viewers of ABC drama Big Sky, starring Vikings actor Katheryn Winnick and Cruel Intentions star Ryan Phillippe, have reacted with shock to the plot twist in the show’s season premiere.

Created by David E Kelley, the creator of the critically-acclaimed series Big Little Lies, Big Sky follows private detectives Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury), Cody Hoyt (Ryan) and former police officer Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn) as they look for two young girls who have gone missing in Montana.

In the trailer for the show, which is based on the C. J. Box’s 2013 novel The Highway, it’s revealed that there is more to the case than meets the eye, as more young girls have vanished in the vicinity.

But while viewers may have expected thrilling, unexpected moments in the season premiere, very few would have predicted that the episode would draw to a close with Cody – one of the protagonists – being shot at point blank range.

Viewers shared their shock on social media, with many expressing their disappointment that Ryan, 46, may not appear in the rest of the series.

‘He can’t be dead!! I’ve been seeing him in literally every ad for this show! He can’t be DEAD! Ain’t he a main character??!!!’ one person tweeted incredulously.

‘I was tricked. I thought Ryan would be on my TV every Tuesday night,’ another said, while someone else stated that the actor was the ‘only reason’ they were watching the show.

During an interview with Variety, Ryan shared his views on his character’s controversially early demise.

‘I was shocked, certainly. And I think that’s also what made me so excited about it,’ the Lincoln Lawyer star said.

‘So often in entertainment you can see what’s coming a mile away. And to have moments in a series like this, where it kind of takes your breath away, or you’re absolutely shocked and didn’t see it coming, that’s exciting to be part of.’

Ryan explained that when filming the scene, he felt it was important not to ‘give away the ending within the scene itself’, explaining: ‘You’re kind of playing against what ends up being the ultimate drama at the end of it.’

The actor also teased that Cody could reappear in some form during the series, stating: ‘That’s not the last you’ll see or hear of him.’

Big Sky returns on ABC on 24 November at 10|9c.
