'Nashville' Is In Talks with 4 to 5 Platforms for Season Five

There is a likely chance that the beloved ABC series Nashville will come back for a fifth season as four to five networks and platforms are in talks to renew the show!

Execs for Lionsgate, the studio behind the show, opened up about the possibility of the series returning in an earnings call with reporters.

“The fans and everyone else is clamoring for many more seasons,” Lionsgate’s head of TV, Kevin Beggs, said (via Variety).

While the studio is looking for just one more season at this point, they see it going on for much longer.

“We kind of go one season at a time in our thinking. Our near-term plan is to get another full season,” Beggs added. “These kinds of shows can go forever and ever — obviously that’s our hope and expectation, but we’ve to to do it one season at a time. So right now, we’re all about Season 5. So we hope to land Season 5 and keep talking about this show for years to come.”

If the series is renewed, the cast will be back as they “have long-term deals with” the stars of the show.

Fans are definitely hoping for more episodes after that big cliffhanger ending in the season four finale, which could be the series finale.

Connie Britton & Sophia Bush Support Lupita Nyong'o At 'Eclipsed'!

Connie Britton wraps her arm around Lupita Nyong’o while posing backstage at her Broadway play Eclipsed held at the Golden Theatre on Tuesday (May 17) in New York City.

The 49-year-old actress was joined by Sophia Bush and Urban Cowboy B&B representative Jersey Banks as they showed their support.

“Patience Jacob. Awa Abughe. These are the names of the 2 Nigerian girls acknowledged last night at the astonishing #Eclipsed on Broadway,” Connie captioned with her Instagram post. “They, along with their schoolmates in Chibok, were abducted by the Boko Haram, and have been missing for 765 days. Amazingly today we are getting a report of the first girl found since the abduction. She is traumatized and pregnant. And thank you to the incredible cast of @eclipsedbway for giving girls like these a face, a name, humanity. #knowhername #bringbackourgirls”

“The importance of @eclipsedbway cannot be overstated,” Sophia added. “The beauty of this play that personalizes, and personifies, the stories of women in a war-torn region, highlighting the #BringBackOurGirls abduction, reminding audiences that 219 girls from that school group are still held captive by Boko Haram, is something I fear I can’t adequately describe.”

The 49-year-old actress opened up about the cancellation of her hit show Nashville after four seasons on ABC.

Connie said the news was “bittersweet” as she is excited to get to do other projects.

“It’s been a little bit schizophrenic because I’ll talk to my Nashville friends, and they’re all devastated. It’s a real bummer also for the town too. I’m going to miss those people so much,” Connie added. “I’m so upset, then I talk to my friends in L.A., and they’re like, ‘We’re so happy you’re coming home.’ So I’m just like, I don’t know what I feel!”
