What Can We Anticipate From Season 2 Of Joe Pickett?
One of the two storylines in Joe Pickett Season 2 is about Joe and his wife Marybeth. When Joe discovers a hunter who has been slaughtered and mockingly posed as an elk before being strung up, he is horrified. He had the terrible idea that someone in Saddlestring is intentionally hunting hunters. Marybeth begins her investigation after Marissa Left Hand, a young Arapaho woman, mysteriously disappears.
Thompson will play Joe’s new sidekick, Luke Brueggeman, a trainee at Game and Fish with a big mouth and a decent heart. The description also claims that he hates horses and employs an “unconventional method” to catch the inebriated Elk. Guynn makes a comeback in the roles of April Keeley, Joe’s adopted daughter, Rook McLanahan, an inept deputy, and Cricket, a quirky deputy who has a crush on a runaway.
