CMT announced that Season 6 of the beloved show ‘Nashville’ will be its last.
‘Nashville’ first aired on ABC back in 2012 for four seasons before getting canceled. It was the “Nashies”, fans of the show, who petitioned to save the show. CMT stepped in and continued the show, until now.
On Friday, CMT announced the show will come to an end after Season 6, which debuts on January 4, 2018.
“After more than 120 episodes of unforgettable television, we believe that creatively it is time for the series to come to its triumphant close at the end of the upcoming season,” said Kevin Beggs, Chairman of the Lionsgate Television Group. “We’re very proud of our incredibly talented cast and crew, the creative brilliance of our showrunners, and the loyal support of our great partners at CMT, Hulu and ABC Studios. Most importantly, we owe a special debt of thanks to the Nashville fans who propelled the series to an incredible run. We owe it to them to make the 6th season the most exciting and memorable of all,” reported Deadline.
