It’s Official: Nashville Has a New Home on CMT


After weeks of speculation, online petitions and a cliffhanger “series” finale, it looks devoted Nashies are in for a fifth season of their favorite show, Nashville. According to The Tennessean, the show, which was canceled by NBC, will be aired on CMT and then streamed on Hulu.

As of now, the whole cast is expected to return under a new creative team.

While neither the show nor CMT has confirmed the reports just yet, it is said that a deal was reached based largely on state and local incentives. Whatever the reason, we’re just glad that Deacon, Rayna and the whole gang will be back on our TV sometime soon.

Updated 6/10 at 1pm EST with confirmation from PEOPLE:

CMT heard the fans. The wave of love and appreciation they have unleashed for Nashville has been overwhelming,” said CMT President Brian Philips in a statement. “Nashville is a perfect addition to our evolving lineup 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.”

The country music drama has been picked up for 22 episodes.
