Following ABC's cancellation of 'Nashville' after 4 seasons, fans of the beloved program began petitioning for another network to pick it up.
And we now have good news for the Connie Britton/Hayden Panettiere drama:
CMT is officially nearing a deal to bring the series back for a 5th season!!!
Being a Viacom- owned country network, CMT would be the perfect place for the drama series. The numbers the show drew for ABC (which had dropped considerably) would be ski high numbers for CMT.
The other great news, is that every main cast member of the show had signed deals prior to the cancellation which would keep them under contract.
STAY TUNED for an official announcement.
