'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 Talks About Bittersweet 'Nashville' Cancellation

Connie Britton sits down for her interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday (May 16) in New York City.

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.

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!”

“At the end of the day, we didn’t feel that even though Castle and Nashville were wonderful shows and good performers for a long time, the future for us didn’t lie in those shows,” ABC Entertainment Group president Channing Dungey told reporters (via THR). “Looking at ratings, our own finances and looking at new development, decisions came down to the wire, which is the difficult thing about these jobs as we weigh and measure different things.”

Kiefer Sutherland‘s Designated Survivor will take Nashville‘s normal timeslot on Wednesdays at 10 pm in the Fall, while Hayley Atwell‘s Conviction will air during Castle‘s normal timeslot on Mondays at 10pm.
