5th season of Nashville is coming to CMT


Sometimes things work out like they should.

When ABC cancelled Nashville after ratings sagged in the 4th season, the devoted hard-core fan base of the show cried out for more. Now the drama has found a new home in a pretty logical place, Country Music Television.

CMT president Brian Philips said, “CMT heard the fans. The wave of love and appreciation they have unleashed for Nashville has been overwhelming. Nashville is a perfect addition to our evolving line-up of big music specials, documentaries, and original series. We see our fans and ourselves in this show and we will treasure it like no other network. Nashville belongs on CMT.”

Production of Nashville will stay in the same city it’s named after while Hulu will offer streams of all 22 scheduled episodes the day after they air.

Cast deals haven’t been struck yet so there’s no word on who will or will not be returning. Either way, that 4th season cliffhanger is gonna get a resolution y’all!

    So excited!#

      I know. I love the show. I was really dissapointed by the series finale but I heard that ended that way just in case someone picked them up, and they did. I don’t think Connie will be back though. She seemed okay and relieved that the show was ending.

      • FarrahsCryFace

        The rumor is Connie and Hayden will not be on it. Not sure I’ll watch if that’s the case. I can understand Hayden taking another hiatus, she’s back in treatment and she really needs to focus on her family and herself.

        • Booty Fingers

          I’ll still watch only because I feel it’s still watchable and Ive invested 4 years already lol. But yea, Hayden should fall back and focus on getting better for her herself, baby, and husband

        • Alisson Leech

          They can make it without Mrs. Rayna James. Lol. Her daughter has her own storyline now.

          • Booty Fingers

            I hope Maddie is killed off. I hate her. I believe wholeheartedly that drove a ton of fans away and contributed to the dive in ratings. It was a stupid plot that went on forever.

            • DeeDeDee

              You too? She was *really* great at playing an ungrateful brat and I just wanted to pull her hair every time she came on. Lol.

          • FarrahsCryFace

            I just don’t think it will be the same 🙁 time will tell though.

      • Alisson Leech

        Wait… That was supposed to be the series finale?? Lol

        • Booty Fingers

          Yup yup lol. It wasn’t that great. But if Juliette was killed in that crash then I would say that was a fitting way to end Hayden’s character in going out with a clean conscience.

          • Alisson Leech

            I haven’t seen a crash I don’t think. Will have to watch that episode again. I only watch on Hulu.

            • Booty Fingers

              The final scene ends with someone telling Avery that Juliette’s plane lost contact, presumably a plane crash. She was nominated for an Oscar playing Patsy Cline, a singer who died in a crash so I think the writers did that on purpose.

                Ahh. I do remember that!

  • Ali.P

    Nashville is a good show. I’m glad. I’ll definitely continue watching!

    • Alisson Leech

      Me too. Hope they keep new episodes coming on Hulu!

  • Alisson Leech

    I hope Hayden Panettiere’s character doesnt come back. Hayden needs to take a break from work and get well. Heard she is back in hospital for depression.

  • Courtney

    Awwww I’m so bummed I don’t get that channel! I think I can still watch it on OnDemand but then I can’t fast forward through commercials. Glad it’s back though! I love this show!!!

    • Alisson Leech

      Me too. My Wednesday nights consist of hip hop on Empire, then country on Nashville. Lol

  • DDustman

    Happy happy happy Nashville will return for season five.
    I love this show and enjoy the talented stars who make it
    so enjoyable. I think even if some of the stars do not return
    there is plenty of storyline to make another great season!!!

  • Kaia Elle Murray

    This excitesvme! I was so bummed when I heard it was being cancelled. I love the show and equally love the music! I will definitely keep watching

    I like that Hulu, Netflix, etc pick up shows that the networks drop.
    I wish it’d have started earlier though, some good ones were cancelled a few years back. Terra Nova was great.
