Nashville: CMT Renews Series for a Fifth Season


Rayna James has plenty of songs left to sing! Fans of the drama Nashville can now rest easy this weekend. The ABC drama that was cancelled after four seasons lasts month has finally found a new home. CMT will be picking up the series for a 22-episode fifth season. This is even greater news as most cable network series will only run a 13-episode season. The information was confirmed by Studio Lionsgate.

This new deal will also include the series streaming on Hulu. New episodes will appear on the streaming service only a few days after being broadcast on the country music network. CMT already has syndication rights for the earlier seasons of Nashville so fans can bask in all the drama from Juliette Barnes all the way back to season one.

It still has yet to be determined how integral of a part the cast will play with the move to CMT. Connie Britton who plays Rayna James and Hayden Panettiere who portrays Juliette Barnes have not signed any deals for a fifth season. A Lionsgate TV chairman has stated that the two actresses play an integral part to the success of the series, so it is expected they should return. If Panettiere does not come back for season five, it will be most likely revealed that Juliette did perish when her plane went missing during the season four finale. It has been confirmed that new showrunners Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz, who were hired by ABC a few months ago, will be back for season five.

Several Nashville stars including Charles Esten (Deacon) and Clare Bowen (Scarlette) are currently on tour promoting the songs they sing on the series. They will be in Nashville performing a concert tonight and are expected to celebrate the good news of the renewal with fans in attendance.
