Neo-Western men with horses, hats, and guns swearing along in the wilderness of Wyoming, trying to protect their families. At first glance, the premise may not seem much of a pull, but Joe Pickett isn’t your regular show that can be judged by its premise.

JOE PICKETT SEASON 2 PLOT
In the final episode of Joe Pickett season 1, “Open Season,” we see Marybeth is shot, and Sheridan is nowhere to be seen. Joe informs Lucy and April to get ready to evacuate the house as missy struggles to tell where Sheridan went.
A picnic is arranged for Mary, where she comforts her daughter as Joe spots Sheridan. He tells him that Willie is alive and that she could be the litter’s mother.
He compliments her on keeping the babies safe and suggests Sheridan take them to a safer place. Marybeth has an emotional moment with Joe, saying no child should go through what he did.
She thanks her as if not for him, she would have lost two more kids. The episode ends with a group song while Joe and Sheridan take the weasels to an Indian Reservation. They also name them Snuggle bear and Victor.
The second season will have two different narratives as part of the plot progression. The first will feature Joe and Marybeth, who find a dead hunter mockingly dressed like an elk. Joe concludes that a hunter is being hunted for sport in Saddlestring.
Secondly, a young Arapaho woman called Marrisa has gone missing, which leads to Marybeth s’ detective inquiry. Joe will be aligned with a new sidekick called Thomson, who does not like a horse, but his methods to capture drunk elks are often termed “unconventional”.
Joe Pickett season 2 will also see the return of April Keely, Joe s’ adoptive sister, and deputy Mclanahan.
